With iPad, we've always had a somewhat paradoxical goal, to create a device that's immensely powerful, yet so thin and light you almost forget it's there. A device that helps you do amazing things, without ever getting in your way. The iPad Air 2 is all that. And then some.
To create the astonishingly thin silhouette of the iPad Air 2, we started by redesigning the Retina display, fusing what had been three layers into one. Not only did this make the display thinner, it made it better, with more vivid colors and greater contrast. Then we added an antireflective coating, giving the iPad Air 2 the least reflective display of any tablet in the world.
Not only is the iPad Air 2 thinner, it's also a lot more powerful. We designed a new chip, the A8X, that delivers substantially better CPU and graphics performance than its predecessor. In fact, with its 64-bit desktop-class architecture, the iPad Air 2 is as powerful as many personal computers.
The iPad Air 2 comes with our breakthrough Touch ID technology. It gives you an unprecedented level of security because it uses nature's most perfect password: your fingerprint. So with just one touch, you can instantly unlock your iPad Air 2. But Touch ID goes beyond that. You can also make secure purchases in iTunes, iBooks, and the App Store. And with Apple Pay, you can unlock an entire world of online shopping that's fast, convenient, and secure.
The new iSight camera is our best iPad camera yet, with advanced optics, an improved sensor, and a powerful Apple-designed image signal processor. There are new features like panorama, time-lapse videos, slo-mo, and burst and timer modes. The front-facing FaceTime HD camera has been redesigned, too, with an improved sensor and larger pixels for even better low-light performance. The upshot? All your photos and videos — and video calls and selfies — look incredible.
iOS 8 is the most advanced mobile OS ever, with features that make the iPad Air 2 even more indispensable. Continuity lets you start a project on one device and finish it on another. Family Sharing lets up to six people in your family share movies, books, music, and apps. With iCloud Drive, you can safely store any kind of document and access it from any device. In fact, every feature in iOS 8 is designed to work seamlessly with the iPad Air 2, taking full advantage of its powerful A8X chip, ultrafast wireless, and brilliant Retina display.
