LATEST DESIGN FOR A LEANER LOOK AND MEANER PERFORMANCE
The iPad Air is incredibly thin yet sturdily built, on account of its aluminum uni-body design. In fact, it has done away with about one-fourth of the volume of the former generation iPad. Hence, it boasts of an extremely lightweight of just one gravity-defying pound. However, it’s most amazing aspect is it’s ability to encapsulate so much power and performance into its slender frame. The iPad Air allows you to perform many more functions, without having to worry about hauling around any excess weight.
AMAZING POWER AND PERFORMANCE IN SPITE OF BEING LIGHTWEIGHT
With Apple’s patented, all new A7 chip, a 64-bit desktop class architecture is brought to the iPad Air Tablet. This results in double the processor speed and graphics performance. Plus, the tablet provides up to 10 hours of incessant battery run time.
The iPad Air offers up to twice the WiFi speed since it is equipped with two antennae and MIMO (multiple-input multiple-output) technology. A downloading time of up to 300 Mbps – twice the data rate of the former generation iPad – can be easily achieved with the dual-band (2.4GHz and 5GHz) 802.11n WiFi and MIMO. Hence the time required for downloading a movie, sharing photos or documents, or just surfing the web, is much less than before.
MORE LTE BANDS
Equipped with WiFi Cellular, the iPad Air enables internet connection even if one is not within a WiFi signal range. Now many more LTE bands are supported so that one can effortlessly connect to more cellular data networks globally. Connecting to the internet is possible at much greater speeds, sometimes even faster than broadband speeds, irrespective of where you are. Flexible plans are provided, which don’t demand a contract signing, while certain plans even permit sharing of data across several diverse devices.

Other resourceful applications such as iPhoto, iMovie, GarageBand, Pages, Numbers, and Keynote are also provided with the iPad Air.

Plus, many new applications are constantly induced in the App Store. iPad apps are way more detailed and simpler to use than normal phone apps. They exploit every inch of pixels on the Retina display and leverage technologies like the gyroscope, accelerometer, and compass.

Video recordings sound clearer and even the Siri feature recognizes what you’re saying better.
