For being one of the lightest, thinnest tablets on the market, the iPad Air is remarkably solid and durable thanks to its aluminum unibody. It weighs only one pound and can be slipped into almost any bag, purse, or briefcase.
The 9.7-inch retina display gives a phenomenal user experience with the smoothest high-definition graphics available, offering an astounding 2048 x 1536 resolution and 264 pixels per inch.
The iPad Air’s display features more than 3.1 million pixels, a pixel count well over that of HDTV. Never complain about grainy, pixilated images and videos again with a display this good.
When it comes to performance, the iPad Air comes equipped with iOS 8, the most advanced mobile operating system on the market, and it comes complete with a lot of new and exciting features, including Family Sharing and iCloud Drive. Furthermore, with the powerful A7 processor, it has great battery life and a 64-bit architecture for enhanced responsiveness.
For users on the go, the iPad Air has a battery life that can extend to up to 10 hours between charges. And when you need to connect, you’ll have ultra-high-speed Wi-Fi and a large number of LTE bands (for Wi-Fi + cellular models) for the fastest Internet connection wherever you happen to be, at home or abroad.
If you’re looking for useful and entertaining apps, you can find over 500,000 of them available for the iPad Air. It comes with apps for email, music, photos, movies, documents, spreadsheets, and other utilities pre-installed. Beyond those, iPad-specific apps are available that do more than any phone app can do by taking full advantage of the iPad Air’s features, including its accelerometer, retina display, processor speed, and gyroscope.
