iPad Air 2

iPad Air 2

So capable, you won't want to put it down. So thin and light, you won't have to.

For iPad, the goal has always been somewhat paradoxical: to create a device that's immensely powerful, yet so thin and light you almost forget it's here. 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 beautiful display.

To create the astonishingly thin silhouette of iPad Air 2, the Retina display was redesigned, fusing what had been three layers into one. Not only did this make the display thinner, it made it better, with more vivid colors coating was added, giving iPad Air 2 one of the best least reflective displays of any tablet in the world.

Massive power. In a minimal form.

Not only is iPad Air 2 thinner, it's also a lot more powerful. We designed a 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, play, surf, and shop all day long.

Two amazing cameras.
Cleverly disguised as an iPad.

The iSight camera in iPad Air 2 delivers advanced optics, an improved sensor, and a powerful Apple-designed image signal processor. There are features like panorama, time-lapse videos, slo-mo, and burst and timer modes. The front-facing FaceTime HD camera has been redesigned, too, with an improved sensor and larger pixels for even better low-light performance. The upshot? All your photos, videos and selfies look incredible.

Faster wireless. Good things come to those who don't wait.

Wi-Fi on iPad Air 2 is fast - more than twice as fast as the previous generation - so downloading movies and streaming videos take less time. Whether or not you're in Wi-Fi range, the superfast Wi-Fi + Cellular model supports a wide range of networks around the world.
