So capable, you won’t want to put it down. So thin and light, you won’t have to. 

iPad Air 2 is an impossibly thin 6.1 millimeters. And it weighs less than a pound. So it’s even easier to hold in one hand and take with you anywhere.

Not just a thinner display. A better display. 

By fusing what had been three layers into one, we were able to make the Retina display even thinner. That also made the display better, with more vivid colors and greater contrast. And a new anti-reflective coating makes it the least reflective display of any tablet in the world.

Security based on a one‑of-a-kind design: your fingerprint. 

iPad Air 2 comes with our breakthrough Touch ID technology. With just one touch, it scans your fingerprint and instantly unlocks your iPad. It even lets you make secure purchases in iTunes, iBooks, and the App Store.

Two amazing cameras. Cleverly disguised as an iPad.

The new iSight camera in iPad Air 2 has advanced optics, an improved sensor, and a powerful Apple-designed image signal processor. There are also new features like panorama, time-lapse videos, slo-mo, and burst and timer modes. And the FaceTime HD camera has an all-new sensor and larger pixels for improved low-light performance.

Massive power. In its most minimal form. 

The A8X chip delivers 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. And yet it still gives you up to 10 hours of battery life.

Faster Wireless. Good things come to those who don’t wait. 

Wi-Fi on iPad Air 2 is fast - more than twice as fast as the previous generation. The Wi-Fi + Cellular model is equipped with faster, more advanced LTE technology. And you can choose from a variety of carriers and flexible short-term plans.

Apps designed for iPad. And everything you want to do with it. 

iPad Air 2 comes with powerful built-in apps that let you surf the web, check email, edit movies and photos, write documents, or read a book. And there are hundreds of thousands of apps on the App Store, all designed specifically for the larger Retina display.

iOS. The world’s most advanced mobile operating system. 

iOS is even easier to use with features like Control Center, AirDrop, and smarter multitasking. And because it’s designed for iPad, everything not only looks beautiful, it runs beautifully.

I use my iPad for everything. You can download Office and basically use it as a computer with a keyboard attachment. I like how it’s compact and easy to carry around as opposed to an actual laptop. I haven’t had any issues with it but I’ll probably end up buying an actual laptop for medical school.

First impressions were amazing! This thing is so light it feels as though you are holding a magazine. I never had an issue with the weight until I compared the two and it was unbelievable. Of course if you've owned an Apple product setup was very easy and fast.

This product is on the pricey side but it is worth it. Especially if you are a college student. You could use it for your personal need and then attach the key board and make it a laptop which comes in handy.

I LOVED THIS IPAD UNITL ... I had this iPad for about a year and my charger port stop working. I plugged my iPad up to charge one day and the power pack became very hot. It was so hot it melted my piece that plugs in my iPad, causing my iPad to not hold a charge or charge. I contacted Apple and was told I was responsible for the repairs. Overall I loved my iPad, but wished apple would at least offer a better warranty plan for their products that cost a arm and a leg.

This is my first iPad and I got it as a Christmas gift. So far, it has been all kinds of awesomeness! It is thin, light, FAST, and user friendly. My first task was to get a screen protector and a case. It's so slim and lightweight that I feel it needs protection. Great product and I can't wait to use it more for work and play!
