Design So capable, you won’t want to put it down. So thin and light, you won’t have to. The ?rst thing you’ll notice is how incredibly thin and light it is. iPad Air 2 is an impossibly thin 6.1 millimetres, making it our thinnest iPad ever. And it weighs less than half a kilo. So it’s even easier to hold in one hand and take with you anywhere. Ingenuity makes it thin. Aluminium makes it strong. When it was introduced four years ago, the original iPad set the standard for thinness and lightness. Since then, iPad has become even thinner and lighter. But thanks to its durable aluminium unibody, iPad Air 2 doesn’t sacri?ce strength in the pursuit of thinness. From the moment you pick it up, you feel how sturdy and rigid it is. Not just a thinner display. A better display. The displays on previous generations of iPad used three separate components. iPad Air 2 changes all that, combining those three layers into just one. This eliminates gaps between layers, along with the internal re?ectance caused by those gaps. The result? Colours are richer, contrast is greater, and images are sharper and more vivid. Your content, at your ?ngertips. The LCD layer is now closer to your eyes (and your ?ngers), so when you touch the screen it feels as if you’re touching your content. And we’ve improved the sensitivity of the screen, so it tracks your finger even more accurately when you make quick gestures. Which means everything you do – playing games, sur?ng the web, enjoying photos and videos – becomes more personal, immediate and immersive. The lowest re?ectance of any tablet. iPad Air 2 features a custom-designed anti-reflective coating that reduces glare by 56 per cent, making it the least re?ective tablet in the world. In virtually any kind of environment – o?ces, classrooms, outdoors – everything is clearer and more readable. Massive power. In its most minimal form. And all your actions – swiping, It’s also extremely power efficient, with up to 10 hours of battery life.

    Is it really worth it?, 30 Dec. 2014

    General feel:
    As with all Apple products you pay a premium price. For that price you get a quality product, looking stylish with a quick, sleek and user friendly friendly feel. The product you can’t fault, does everything I need it too with the thousands of apps available on the App Store. In comparison to a laptop it depends on your needs, for sending a quick email or just browsing the web this will suit your needs perfectly. The portability of the iPad allows you to carry it round without any fuss, as its smaller than an A4 piece of paper (although it is thicker).
    Is it any different to other Apple products?
    In a sense no, iOS 8.1 (the current version at the time of this review) is exactly the same across all devices with a few minor changes here and there, with the size of the screen would be the biggest selling point for the iPad. The iPad does have touch guesters which you can use as shortcuts instead of buttons, such as placing four fingers on the screen and pulling them all inwards. This minimises the app and takes you back to the home screen (instead of pressing the home button). If you’ve used iOS before you can easily pickup how to use the system and if you haven’t it’s just as intuitive. And of course you get the quality from Apple we’ve come to expect.
    What? A fingerprint sensor?
    Those of you who have an iPhone 5s or newer may want to skip this paragraph. The fingerprint sensor adds a new dimension to unlocking your device. Your spoilt by this new feature, once setup just place any registered finger onto the sensor (also the home button in case anyone was wondering) and 99% of the time your iPad will unlock. In the 3 months I’ve had my iPhone 5s the sensor has only not worked a few times and these are mostly my fault, for not putting my finger on fully or having something stuck to it. So far the iPads sensor has had the same reliability, the only downside been I can only register 5 fingers and I have 10.
    Comparison: iPad Air vs iPad Air 2
    Now here I don’t want to go into the technical hardware changes too much but just focus on changes the standard user would notice.
    As noted above the fingerprint sensor is probably the biggest reason to buy this iPad over the original iPad Air, the ease of use and how it becomes a chore to type in your passcode really proves this when you’ve been using it a while.
    Another change over the original Air is the screen is now anti-reflective. Not something you notice until someone points it out and you look for it but when you check it out and compare to the original Air you can really see a difference, you can now see the screen a lot clearer which is perfect for anyone who loves reading books, playing on apps or anything else electronic in the sun, might have to go on holiday to test this more throughly though.
    Apple say they’ve bumped up the rear facing camera but through my experience using the camera is an everyday way doesn’t really show differing results, there are some noticeable differences when you zoom in on photos, on the Air 2 the quality appears much higher (less pixelation) but when viewing a photo full size there are no noticeable differences.
    Final comparison is the battery life. The iPad Air 2 does seem to have an averagely higher battery life, and although I’ve not directly tested completing the same tasks on each iPads and seeing which dies first the standby time is improved, with the battery seeming to last much longer.
    In conclusion:
    The iPad Air 2 seems to be bringing all the little changes needed to the original iPad Air together along with a few additional upgrades. The core functionality of the iPad remains the same, if your just looking for a iPad to surf the web you might want to look at the original but for anything more this iPad will completely satisfy your needs.

    Not sure which iPad to buy? This may help!, 2 Nov. 2014

    Customer Video Review Length:: 2:58 Mins

    It’s hard to believe that Apple could improve upon the iPad Air, but they managed it with this device, the “iPad Air 2” launched in October 2014. It’s even thinner and lighter than the astonishingly slim predecessor. It has the same remarkable all day battery life, but an even faster processor, anti-glare screen, and (my personal favourite), the “Touch ID” fingerprint reader which means I can avoid using passwords and pin numbers.

    I’ve owned several iPads (starting in 2010), and they are “a thing of beauty”.

    A word of warning, this is a very long review and describes the entire iPad range to help you decide the best model for you. It’s broken up into sections to make it manageable, so make a cup of tea, sit down and read on.

    FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions
    Q: Is this the latest iPad Air?
    A: Yes. (Provided you’re reading this before October 2015). Launched 16th October 2014. Likely to be superseded October 2015. Be aware, there’s several “generations” available (roughly one per year) on Amazon. Skip down to “Should I upgrade” for a description of each.

    Q: Is this covered by Warranty ?
    A: Yes. Full 12 month Apple warranty, and 90 days free technical support. You can also extend the warranty with “AppleCare+” for £79 a year provided to take out the cover within 60 days of buying your iPad. This includes accidental damage insurance (up to two incidents per year subject to a £39 excess).

    Q: Why are these cheaper on Amazon than at the Apple store? What’s the catch?
    A: No catch. You can buy in person from the Apple store (including free engraving), or from John Lewis, and get a free 2 year John Lewis warranty. Alternatively buy from Amazon with a 30 day NO QUESTIONS ASKED return policy. If you find this item is NOT as described, (eg. does not have a UK plug), return it immediately, report the issue to Amazon, and write a critical review.

    Q: Is this a UK or USA model of the iPad?
    A: UK model. It is illegal to sell an electrical device in the UK without a UK plug or a foreign plug and adapter. If it doesn’t have a UK plug you’re entitled to a refund. Otherwise there’s absolutely no difference.

    Q: Help! There seems to be loads of “Generations” and iPad model numbers – how can I tell which one I’m looking at?
    A: Yes, it’s confusing, and I’ve provided full details below, but there’s a relatively simple way to check – just see which version of iOS (the operating system) it’s running.
    Full Size iPads: I wouldn’t really recommend anything but the “iPad Air” (iOS 7) or “iPad Air 2” (iOS 8).
    Mini iPads: There’s 3 generations: iPad mini 1 (iOS 6), iPad Mini 2 – “Retina Display” (iOS7) or iPad mini 3 (iOS8).
    Note: You can upgrade your iPad for free to the latest version, but you may find it runs slightly slower than before.

    Q: Should I buy the Cellular option?
    A: Read “Which model should I buy” below. You almost certainly don’t “need” to – as ever it always depends. Many iPads never leave home, and even when they do you can store your videos/music on the device or connect to a coffee bar hotspot to get online. If you have a smartphone (eg. Android or iPhone) you can set up a “personal hot spot” or “tethering” and use your data plan on your phone. This effectively allows you to connect a WIFI only iPad to the internet via your mobile phone while you’re out and about. On an Android phone go to Setup –> Tethering & portable hotspot. On on iPhone go to Settings –> Personal Hotspot, and set up a personal WIFI network from your phone. Try it now, but be aware it may be an optional extra dependent upon your mobile phone plan.

    Q: How much storage or “disk space” do I need?
    A: It depends. If intend to buy lots of Apps or store lots of videos and photos then go for the 64Gb or 128Gb is you need. If it’s your first iPad, and you’ll mainly be using it for accessing web pages and reading the odd book, then 16Gb will be fine. Be aware, you cannot increase the storage – you can’t add an SD card. .

    Q: Is it easy to set up?
    A: Yes – very easy. Be sure to be near a WIFI connection, and the iPad will carefully take you through the steps needed to set it up. No, there’s very little in the way of an instruction manual – which is a testament to the simplicity of this device. It’s so easy to use most people find they don’t need one. However, there are lots of books available on Amazon. Just search for “iPad” under books if you’re concerned.

    Q: Does it have a USB connection?
    A: No. This means you can’t connect just any old device, but also means you can’t accidentally get a virus. To help support this, all Apps (programs) are available “over the air” (downloaded from the Apple App Store) and vetted by Apple. You can buy a cable which…
