Apple iPad Air 2 is a high-level iOS device launched in October 2014, with a huge 9.7 inches multi-touch capacitive screen, a great performance 64-bit CPU clocking at 1.5 GHz, and two cameras, an 8 MP back facing camera and a 1.2 mega-pixels front camera. That's all? No, it's just the tip of the iceberg.

About its design materials, this tablet is mainly made with Aluminium, giving this device a quality design and improved resistance. The Apple iPad Air 2 is quite a compact device, given that it has a 9.7 inches screen and it is just 9.45" long. The iPad Air 2 is just 0.24 inches thick, making it one of the thinnest tablets on sale. Apple has made a great job making this tablet weight just 15.41 ounces. Apple sells this tablet in two colors, gray and gold.

Apple decided to build this tablet using a Apple A8X system chip, holding a powerful 64 bits processing unit ticking at 1.5 GHz with a large 2 GB of RAM. The Apple iPad Air 2 counts with a 16 GB interesting internal memory and while it doesn't count with an external memory slot, it should be enough to install hundreds of applications and games, but it might not be enough if you are fan of the largest games currently available or taking tons of photos and videos.

The iPad Air 2 features two cameras, an 8 megapixels back camera and a 1.2 MP front side camera. It is capable of capturing Full HD 1920x1080 videos at 30 fps, and slow-motion videos in 1280x720 (HD) up to 120 fps (4 times slower than regular videos). Additionally, this tablet's camera also includes a large number of valuable characteristics: fast burst mode, auto-focus, face detection shooting, digital image stabilization, HDR mode, time lapse video and geo tagging.

This tablet is equipped with a nice 9.7 inches display with a 2048 x 1536 resolution, which makes it hard to distinguish the pixels taking part of the display. Its display uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and has multi-touch detection.

This device provides wifi connection (and it can provide it to other devices around, as a mobile hotspot), 4G LTE high speed connectivity or the fastest 3G internet connection, supported by HSPA, UMTS, EV-DO A, EV-DO B and EDGE technologies. This tablet uses a Nano SIM card to use GSM services and it works with both GSM and CDMA.

This device also comes with many interesting features like Bluetooth (4.0), Fingerprint ID, GPS Navigation and NFC, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

The iPad Air 2 uses a 7340 mAh big non-removable battery providing this tablet a great battery duration. An issue to consider is that this tablet's battery is not removable so you won't be able to replace it when it begins to live shorter, even though with this big battery you will probably discard this tablet before that happens.

Apple offers the Apple iPad Air 2 for only $ 390, which is an amazing offer for a good device like this. This tablet is probably the correct choice for you if you you love taking photos, are looking for a gamer tablet, want a social device or want a work tablet. The iPad Air 2 is packed with Lightning to USB Cable and USB Power Adapter.
