iPad Air Series

iPad Air was announced on October 22, 2013 at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts . The physical transformation from iPad to iPad Air is the  most important update to Apples full-sized tablet , and alongside the iPad 2 redesign, one of the most important updates in the brief history of the device.

The iPad Air features a thinner design with similarities to the contemporary iPad Mini 2, along with the same 64-bit Apple A7 processor with M7 coprocessor. With the iPad Air, Apple finally brings Apples their new tablet design language, begun with the 4-inch iPod touch and 7.9-inch iPad mini in 2012, to the 9.7-inch form factor. Apple has managed to cram into this new 9.4 inches (240 mm) x 6.6 inches (169.5 mm) x 0.29 inch (7.5 mm), 1 pound (469 g) glass and aluminium chassis.

It still uses the same 9.7-inch Retina Display as the previous iPad model, an improved front-facing camera makes using FaceTime much clearer.  The new front-facing camera is capable of video in 720p HD, includes face detection, and backside illumination. The rear camera received an upgrade as well; now being called the iSight camera, in addition to the same functions as the front camera it also contains a 5MP CMOS, hybrid IR filterand a fixed ƒ/2.4 aperture.

The Apple iPad Air Wi-Fi is powered by 1.3GHz and it comes with 1GB of RAM. The tablet packs 16GB of internal storage cannot be expanded. The Apple iPad Air Wi-Fi runs iOS 7 and is powered by a 8820mAh non removable battery.
