The iPad Air 2 is a true stunner not just when it comes to performance, but that extraordinarily sleek shell that houses all those powerful components is truly exceptional as well. If the space gray, gold, and silver color variants don't tickle your fancy here's some bling; enter - the 24K gold plated iPad Air 2.
When a new iPhone or iPad comes out, accessory makers usually scramble to get new cases, covers and charging stands out the door before their big competitors can beat them to the punch. One of those accessory companies is Logitech, makers of all manner of little wonders that enhance our iOS devices.
Turns out, the ability to switch carriers on the go on the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 may not be as simple as Apple foresaw it. AT&T has announced that it for one will not be playing second fiddle to Apple, and will lock the Apple SIM to the AT&T network once an iPad connects to it. Apple is currently shipping all GSM-enabled iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 tablets with the Apple SIM.
Turns out, the monster-of-a-tablet iPad Air 2 has actually been very modest about its specs. The device does sport an NFC chip, and this raises a few eyebrows. You see, Apple never marketed, let alone mentioned this addition to the tablet’s hardware.
In the run-up to the announcement of the iPad Air 2, many were touting it as a powerhouse, and although Apple made a bit of a song and dance of its speed at last week's event, the Geekbench results now back up these claims. As the title suggests, the A8X is a triple-core configuration clocked at 1.5GHz, and as well as that, Apple has also bundled in 2GB of RAM.
We’ve just come across a brilliant GIF of how the iPad has evolved since its release in 2010. Fans across the world cannot help but marvel at how slim the iPad Air 2 actually is at 6.1mm, considering the firepower it carries in that sleek shell.
Well, it's been quite the day of announcements in Cupertino. Still reeling from the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus announcement and then subsequent pre-order fiasco followed by launch, we then had to put up with Bendgate fiasco. Now Apple has bestowed upon us a whole new collection of goodies for us to lust after and if we're really lucky, place orders for. They say that time stands still for no man, and that's doubly true if you're working at 1 Infinite Loop.
The iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 have been officially announced, and the big question in everyone’s mind right now is: how do they compare to the original iPad Air and the iPad mini 2 with Retina display from last year?
While all the attention from Apple's big event today is quite rightly falling on that rather impressive Retina 5K iMac as well as the updated iPad Air, there is one particular feature of Apple's new tablet that seems to have almost been squeezed in under the radar. Apple made no mention of it during the announcement of the iPad Air 2 and it was instead left to languish amongst all of the other features laid out on the product's Web page.
Now that the big Apple event of the month is out of the way and the dust has begun to settle on what the company has announced, the online Apple Store has now been updated with all kinds of new wares. Not all of the new additions are products that were announced on-stage either, with Apple making new accessories for its brand new iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 available to buy.
