iPad Air

iPad Air puts all the computer you may ever need into a simple piece of glass. Both versions of iPad Air are incredibly capable, with desktop-class 64‑bit architecture, gorgeous 9.7-inch Retina displays, and all-day battery life. And the new iPad Air 2 takes those capabilities even further with Touch ID, the fast A8X chip, and new cameras — in a design so thin and light you have to hold one to believe it.

iPad mini

Here’s proof that good things really do come in small packages. No matter which iPad mini you choose, you’ll be treated to a display that’s sharp and vibrant, performance that’s fast and powerful, and much more. And with hundreds of thousands of apps available, you can do more than you ever thought possible.
