So capable, you won’t want to put it down. So thin and light, you won’t have to. The ﬁrst thing you’ll notice is how incredibly thin and light it is. iPad Air 2 is an impossibly thin 6.1 millimeters, making it our thinnest iPad ever. And it weighs less than half a kilo. So it’s even easier to hold in one hand and take with you anywhere.
With a new A8X chip built on second-generation 64-bit desktop-class architecture, iPad Air 2 is the fastest, most powerful iPad ever. With this kind of performance, you might expect a compromise or two. Like a bigger form factor or a shorter battery life. But iPad Air 2 is both thinner and lighter than the previous iPad Air. And thanks in part to the M8 motion coprocessor, it still has an incredibly long 10-hour battery life.* So you can do more. While carrying less.
Your fingerprint is the perfect password. You always have it with you. And no one can ever guess what it is. Our breakthrough Touch ID technology uses a unique fingerprint identity sensor to make unlocking your iPad Air 2 easy and secure. And with new developments in iOS 8, your fingerprint will grant you faster access to so much more.
You won’t believe how good a photographer you are. With an improved sensor, advanced optics and a more powerful image signal processor, the new iSight camera in iPad Air 2 captures incredibly detailed photos and professional-looking 1080p HD videos. The FaceTime HD camera has been redesigned too, with a new sensor that makes your video calls look better, even in low light. And the large, high-resolution Retina display makes a spectacular viewfinder.
Wireless connections on iPad Air 2 are faster than ever. Wi‑Fi is more than twice as fast as before, with speeds up to 866 Mbps. And Wi‑Fi + Cellular models are packed with advanced technology, offering speeds up to 150 Mbps — a 50 percent increase over previous models. So you can make fast connections, even when you’re on the go.
iPad apps are, true to their name, built just for iPad. And there are hundreds of thousands of them, designed to use every stunning inch of the Retina display and the power of the new A8X chip. You’ll find productivity apps that let you create presentations, build spreadsheets, manage your finances, and write and edit documents. Not to mention apps for photography, gaming, travelling, emailing and managing your workouts. So whatever you’re into, you’ll find an iPad
app to help you do it better.
With an easy-to-use interface, amazing features and security at its core, iOS 8 makes your iPad more capable than ever. It’s designed to look beautiful and work beautifully, so even the simplest tasks are more engaging. And iOS 8 is engineered to take full advantage of the powerful A8X chip, ultra-fast wireless and brilliant Retina display of iPad Air 2.
