iPad Air 2
The Light Heavyweight
You won’t want to put it down
The goal for iPad has been somewhat paradoxical: to create a device that’s immensely powerful, yet so thin and light you could forget it’s there. A device that helps you do amazing things but never gets in your way. iPad Air 2 is all that. And then some.
Not just a thinner display but also beautiful
Creating the thin silhouette of iPad Air 2 started with redesigning the Retina display, fusing what was three layers into one. This makes the display thinner and better — it now has more vivid colors and greater contrast. An anti-reflective coating gives iPad Air 2 one of the least reflective displays of any tablet in the world.
Massive power. Minimal form.
iPad Air 2 is thinner and more powerful. A new chip, the A8X, delivers substantially better CPU and graphics performance than its predecessor. Its 64-bit desktop-class architecture is as powerful as many personal computers. It’s also power efficient, with a 10-hour battery life that lets you work, play, surf and shop all day long.
Two amazing cameras
The iSight camera in iPad Air 2 features advanced optics, an improved sensor and a powerful Apple-designed image signal processor. There are also features like panorama, time-lapse videos, slo-mo, and burst and timer modes. The front-facing FaceTime HD camera has been redesigned and now has an improved sensor and larger pixels for even better low-light performance. The result? All your photos and videos — and video calls and selfies — look incredible.
Faster wireless. No need to wait.
Wi-Fi on iPad Air 2 is more than twice as fast as the previous generation so downloading movies and streaming videos take less time. And the Wi-Fi + Cellular model features faster, more advanced LTE technology. Use Apple SIM to choose a plan quickly and easily in over 100 countries and territories right from your device. You can make fast connections even when you’re on the go.
Apps designed for iPad.
iPad Air 2 comes with powerful apps for every day tasks like surfing the web, checking email, editing movies and photos, writing reports and reading books. And there are hundreds of thousands of apps on the App Store, all designed specifically for the large Retina display (instead of stretched-out phone apps). Whether it’s photography, gaming, travelling, or managing your finances, you’ll find an app that will help you do it better.
iOS 10 and iPad.
Made to do more together.
iPad Air 2 runs iOS 10. It’s the most advanced, intuitive and secure mobile operating system in the world. Its enhanced apps and features like Slide Over, Split View and Picture in Picture let you multitask in powerful yet simple ways. Check messages while answering email or create a presentation while watching the big game. iOS 10 helps you get more out of iPad than ever before.
