The Newest iPad Air: Thinner, Lighter and Faster
Finally, after waiting such a long time, Apple has officially introduced the latest version of iPad. Many people may have thought the newest iPad will be named iPad 5. Anyway, this time, the latest iPad has a new name: the iPad Air.
Thinner, lighter, and faster, the iPad Air weighs 1 pound and is only 7.55mm thick, which is 20 percent thinner and 28 percent lighter than the fourth generation iPad. No wonder Apple names it Air. Maybe you cannot tell the difference by eyes. As long as you go to hold it personally, you will find the difference easily.
The 9.7-inch new iPad Air still adopts the Retina display with 2048 x 1536 pixel resolution. It features a smaller bezel, which shrinks the footprint of the tablet down without compromising on screen size. So, all you see is your content.
The new A7 chip with 64-bit architecture is adopted in the iPad Air. Thanks to the A7 chip, apps run faster, up to twice the CPU speed. Meanwhile, it is accompanied by M7 coprocessor which is also used in iPhone 5S. It allows you to have a better experience based on the movement of the iPad Air. Running iOS7, everything on the iPad Air just look such beautiful. You are gonna love how things look like and run on the iPad Air.
The FaceTime HD camera and 5MP iSight camera make you more willing to smile to the camera. Apple has paid a little more attention to the camera this time. FaceTime HD camera is equipped with a next-generation backside illumination sensor with larger pixels and the 5-megapixel iSight camera also has been updated.
The iPad Air will be available in two colors-space gray and silver, no gold. As for the price, it will start at $499 for a 16 GB Wi-Fi model. And it will go up to $629 for a 16 GB with 4G LTE connectivity.
Overall, Apple has made a huge leap on the new products in terms of speed, performance, and design. If you have sufficient funds on hand, stop thinking and looking, the iPad Air apparently is your best choice.
Note: Though the iPad Air is such an excellent one, just like the other iPads, it lacks of support of Adobe Flash, which means it doesn’t support Flash SWF animations playback. To solve this problem, you can convert convert SWF to MOV or SWF to MP4 using iOrgSoft SWF to Video Converter.
