Is the iPad Air or the iPad 2 the newer version?

Just looking to see what IPAD is the newest version or release. The Air or the iPad 2?

I'll eventually be looking to use the one that I buy for Business Applications in a retail environment. So, I obviously want one that can house the most amount of hardware capabilities like memory, and processor speed, etc.

And, I don't want to find myself with the older version and in need to upgrade well before I even purchase the product. lol

    It goes like this...
    iPad, iPad 2, New iPad (or iPad 3) iPad Retna (or iPad 4), iPad Air, and then iPad Air 2.
    That is the order from oldest to newest.

    To answer your question...the iPad Air is newer then the iPad 2, but the iPad Air 2 is the newest model.

  • iPad Air. It's thinner, lighter, faster, and higher resolution.
