Apple have unveiled the second generation iPad Air.
Measuring in at 6.1mm thin – that’s some 18% thinner than the first Air model – the new tablet comes with improved retina display, as well as an AX8 chip inside it, running 40% faster than the AX7 chip found in the first-gen Air.
The AX8 chip also helps with image processing found in the new 8MP iSight camera. The camera comes with a burst mode as well as 120fps 720p slow-mo and timelapse photos. There’s also a new FaceTime camera up front, complete with Burst Selfies. Because that’s a thing now.
As expected, the new tablet also comes equipped with TouchID and also works with Apple Pay. It also comes with a new anti-reflective coating, which Apple boast gives it the lowest reflectivity of any tablet.
iPad Air 2 will come in silver, ‘space grey’ and gold, and be available to order from tomorrow. It retails at $499 for the 16GB Wi-Fi model, $599 for 64GB and $699 for 128GB.
