Not just a thinner display. A beautiful 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 anti-reflective coating, giving iPad Air 2 one of the 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.1
Fast wireless connectivity.
Wi‑Fi on iPad Air 2 is fast — more than twice as fast as the previous generation — so downloading films and streaming videos take less time. And the Wi‑Fi + Cellular model is equipped with faster, more advanced 4G LTE technology.2 Plus with Apple SIM, you can choose a plan quickly and easily in over 100 countries and territories straight from your device. So you can make fast connections, even when you’re on the go.
