Performance Massive power. In a minimal form.
With an A8X second-generation chip with 64‑bit desktop-class architecture, iPad Air 2 is incredibly fast and powerful. 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.
