Apple iPad Air is a powerful iOS device released some years ago, in 2013, counting with an extremely fast 1400 megahertz Dual-Core processor, a large 9.7-inches touch-screen, a 5 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 1.2 MP front side camera. Let's take a closer sight of what this tablet has to offer.

About its construction quality, the iPad Air is made of Aluminium, which gives a top level finish and an extra resistance. The iPad Air is extremely slim and stilized, with a thickness of just 0.3". The iPad Air is quite a compact device, given that it presents a 9.7 inches display and it's only 9.45" long and 6.67" wide. The Apple iPad Air feels much lighter than what one would expect from a device of this size. Apple is offering this device in black, gray and white.

This tablet is equipped with a very good 1536 x 2048 9.7 inches screen, which makes it hard to see the pixels forming the screen. Its screen uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and can detect multi touch gestures.

Apple sells this device with a Apple A7 system chip, holding a very powerful 1400 MHz Dual-Core 64-bits CPU with only 1 GB of RAM memory which is a little bit disappointing for a device this good. To collaborate with graphic intensive applications, it also counts with a 600 MHz PowerVR G6430 graphic processing unit. A good feature of the iPad Air is the 16 GB quite large internal memory and whereas it doesn't have an external memory card slot, it is enough to store hundreds of apps, although it probably wouldn't be enough if you are fan of the largest games available nowadays or taking tons of photos and videos.

The iPad Air features two cameras, a 5 mega-pixels back-facing camera and a 1.2 mega-pixels front facing camera. This device also shoots videos in Full HD 1920x1080 at 30 fps. Additionally, the camera has lots of valuable features like auto-focus, face detection shooting, digital image stabilization, time lapse video, HDR mode and geo tagging.

This device uses a 8820 mAh big Li-Polymer non-removable battery providing this tablet an amazing battery duration. An issue to take into consideration is that this device's battery is non-removable so you can't buy a new battery when it starts to live shorter, even though having 8820 mAh you will probably buy a new tablet before it becomes an issue.

The iPad Air offers wifi connectivity (and it can provide it to other devices acting as a wireless modem or router), LTE (4G) high speed connectivity or fast 3G internet connection, supported by HSPA, EV-DO A, EV-DO B and EDGE technologies. This tablet works with a Nano SIM card to use GSM services.

This device also comes with some interesting features like Bluetooth (for communication with other devices and accessories), GPS Localization and NFC (Near Field Communication), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

Apple sells the iPad Air for about $ 475, quite the same as other similar tablets. This device is definitely the correct choice it doesn't matter whether you will use this tablet for playing games, love photography, are looking for a device for work or want a social tablet. Apple sells this tablet with USB Power Adapter and Lightning to USB Cable.
