Styled to be the lightest tablet yet, the iPad Air is a powerhouse of performance packed into one sleek package, effectively highlighting the design prowess Apple is known for.
The iPad Air features a body that can be deemed slim, sporting a height of 9.4 inches and a width of 6.6 inches. Accompanying you in your daily life and becoming an extension of your arm, the tablet will hardly weigh you down. The aluminum unibody design deserves much more than just a passing glance – while being unobtrusive, it is also durable enough to stand the rigors of everyday existence.
With thinner bezels and overall width, the focus will be on the content itself rather than the device. The 9.7-inch Retina display of the iPad Air, with a pixel density of 264 PPI and a screen resolution of 2048 x 1536, treats your eyes to a stunning array of colors in every visual, with just the right amount of brightness and astounding clarity.
With LED backlighting and IPS technology, the multitouch screen makes multitasking easy. It also sports an oleophobic coating that ensures that your view is not covered with fingerprints and smudges, despite constant use.
Powered by Apple’s home-grown A7 chip with 64-bit architecture, this iPad Air processes function efficiently to give you good speed. Apps you open are launched at lightning speed and the graphics-rich game runs without any hitches or lag with the A7 processor. It also
supports OpenGLES v3.0 that adds more detail to the graphics and visual effects.
Complementing the A7 is the M7 motion coprocessor that lends efficiency to the built-in sensors to allow the apps to adapt to the functions and give you a customized, intuitive performance and responsiveness.
Armed with the 5-megapixel iSight camera, this iPad Air lets you frame and click crisp, bright pictures with great exposure and clarity whenever you want, wherever you are. The camera works with the image signal processor in the A7 chip to adjust the details automatically, letting you click the perfect photograph without any manual effort or adjustments. What’s more, capture the entire moment to relive at another time in full 1080p HD video with just a swipe on the screen.
A 1.2-megapixel front camera, aided by dual microphones, allows you to video chat with a loved one with good clarity and detail; conversations look and feel better on this FaceTime HD camera. The camera features a backside illumination sensor to allow for more light to be captured in every frame.
