With the new iPad Air 2, they’ve always had a somewhat paradoxical goal: to create a device that’s immensely powerful, yet so thin and light you almost forget it’s there. A device that helps you do amazing things, without ever getting in your way. iPad Air 2 is all that. And then some.
Not just a thinner display. A better display.
To create the astonishingly thin silhouette of iPad Air 2, they started by redesigning the Retina display, fusing what had been three layers into one. Not only did this make the display thinner, it made it better, with more vivid colours and greater contrast. Then they added an anti-reflective coating, giving iPad Air 2 the least reflective display of any tablet in the world.
Not only is iPad Air 2 thinner, it’s also a lot more powerful. They designed a new chip, the A8X, that delivers substantially better CPU and graphics performance than its predecessor. In fact, with its 64-bit desktop-class architecture, iPad Air 2 is as powerful as many personal computers. It’s power efficient too, with a 10-hour battery life that lets you work all day long.
