Apple iPad Air 2

Apple A8X • PowerVR GX6450MP2
First Released 10/16/2014

The iPad Air 2 is Apple's midsized tablet, sporting a 9.7" diagonal screen and weighing in at less than a pound. This revision blaze new trails for thinness - reducing the thickness of the already thin iPad line and coming in at only 6.1mm thick (1/4 an inch). iPad Airs also feature a much smaller screen bezel than older models, packing more pixels into your hands without expanding any dimensions.

Said Apple's Philip Schiller, "iPad is a magical piece of glass that runs more than 675,000 apps specifically designed for it, and is thin and light enough that you can comfortably hold it all day".
