Not just a thinner display. A better display.
To create the astonishingly thin silhouette of iPad Air 2, we 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 we added an antireflective coating, giving iPad Air 2 the least reflective display of any tablet in the world.Learn more about the display
Massive power. In its most minimal form.
Not only is iPad Air 2 thinner, it’s also a lot more powerful. We 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, play, surf and shop all day long.1Learn more about Performance
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 video take less time. And the Wi-Fi + Cellular model is equipped with faster, more advanced wireless technology.2Learn more about Wireless
