Overview

Apple's design has always been about beauty and minimalism. The iPad Air 2 takes on board this philosophy to make for an incredibly thin and light device. At just 6.1mm thin, the Air 2 matches up the new mini 4 by being 18% thinner than the previous iPad ranges, plus, at just 437 grams, it never weighs heavy in the hand.

With an aluminum unibody construction, being this thin doesn't impact on the Air 2's solidity. The Air 2 can be safely stored in a bag, rucksack or suitcase with your other belongings without suffering damage.

Reducing screen thickness was a huge part of making the 2015 iPad ranges thinner. Where they were once manufactured with three separate components, the new style displays combine LCD, touch sensor and cover glass into one seamless item. This brings you closer to the screen for increased brightness, text sharpness, colour saturation and touch sensitivity.

The 9.7 inch display has also been coated with an anti-reflective coating which reduces glare by up to 56 percent in comparison to previous iPads.

Performance

iPad Air 2 uses the Apple-designed A8X processor. This has a second-generation 64-bit architecture and is perfect for modern applications such as 3D games or photo and video editing.

The M8 coprocessor helps out here by taking on board the calculations for the 5 main sensors, improving battery life, so the main A8X processor can handle the more difficult calculations.

Cameras

There are two excellent cameras on the iPad Air 2. The main iSight camera has an 8 megapixel resolution with excellent precision optics. With an upgraded image signal processor and optimised software in the iOS 9 system, more detail can be captured than any previous iPad camera.

Burst mode allows for up to 10 pictures per second, with iPad able to detect smiles and blinks to suggest the best images. Video can be shot at 120 fps for super slow motion effects.

The front-facing FaceTime HD camera has also been improved, with larger pixels in the refined sensor for better low-light performance.

Once you've taken images or video, you can also edit them! Apple include a full editing suite to adjust exposure, coulour, brightness and contrast, as well as applying filters, stickers and animations.

Security

When it comes to security, Touch ID has you covered. With Apple's own encryption based security, you can use your fingerprints as the ultimate password.

Created as part of the initial set up procedure, all you need to do is press a finger to the home button on your iPad Air 2 to unlock the screen. The sapphire crystal coating is strong and resilient, taking a perfect image and resisting damage due to wear over time.

You can use Touch ID for more than just unlocking the screen though. You can use your fingerprint to automatically sign into secure apps and other systems that require authorisation.

You can also verify your credentials to make one touch purchases in iTunes, iBooks, App Store and with Apple Pay at participating retailers.

Connectivity

iPad Air 2 is available as both a WiFi only model and a Cellular enhanced version. WiFi capabilities are now twice as fast as in previous iPads and the cellular option can take advantage of high speed 4G LTE networks (where available).

With 20 LTE bands in the cellular version, iPad Pro is parctically global, with compatibility across many carriers in almost every developed country in the world!

iOS9

With new multitasking features, iOS9 helps you get the most out of using your new iPad. Slide Over, Split View and Picture in Picture all help you multitask. Quicktype features are also available to help make typing easier with cut can paste shortcuts available right on screen.

Slide Over lets you slide a window open in from the side with a second app. Perfect for responding to a text or email without completely leaving what you were doing.

Split View gives you a 50/50 split of two separate apps at once. Scroll around a map whilst looking up a hotel's website. Edit a document while having the reference open at the same time! Split View makes it easier to focus.

Picture in Picture works brilliantly for FaceTime, scaling down the screen to a small corner so you can continue the video call while working elsewhere. The same can be done while watching videos!
