As expectations and rumors all pointed towards, Apple has today officially announced the new IPAD Air at its special event out in Cupertino. The latest in Apple’s full sized IPAD line, the IPAD Air 2 has the same visual feel as last years IPAD Air but with a few added new tricks like Touch ID — and it comes in gold! As you’d expect from an Apple product it’s slim, and it’s light. At just 6.1 mm thin the IPAD Air 2 is the world’s slimmest tablet. It’s so slim it’s actually 18% slimmer than even last year’s IPAD Air, and it’s less than half as thick as the very first IPAD. Inside is Apple’s A8X chipset, brand new and created just for the IPAD Air 2 and it’s paired with the M8 motion coprocessor. Round the back it has an 8MP iSight camera with 1.12micron pixels and an ƒ/2.4 aperture. The camera also boasts a burst mode for photos, timelapse and the ability to take 43MP panoramas. The display is now optically bonded with no air gap and an anti-reflective coating, part of the reason Apple was able to reduce the overall thickness. It’s got 56% reduced reflectivity, which is the lowest value of any tablet on the market today. The IPAD Air 2 will also continue to boast sterling battery life, with Apple promising its standard 10 hours of use from it. Oh, and did we mention it comes in gold? We’ll be going hands-on in a little while but in the meantime be sure to follow the rest of the event in our liveblog!
