Apple iPad Air

Date Written: 11/7/13

Apple has officially released their latest and greatest iPad to date. The 5th generation iPad, called iPad Air, delivers a long-awaited exterior redesign and performance upgrade. The iPad Air weighs just 1 pound and is almost impossibly thin. It's actually 20% thinner than the 4th generation iPad. It still comes with a 9.7" Retina display and aluminum body.

The iPad Air also offers a performance upgrade over the previous iPad. Supporting a 64-bit A7 processor, the iPad Air is very fast and should offer a noticeable upgrade over the last model iPad. Even with the increased performance, the new iPad still offers the same great battery life. Apple promises 10 hours of battery life on the Air and it wouldn't be a stretch to get more than that. It will also feature a 5 MP camera, same as the previous iPad.

Overall the new iPad is thinner, lighter, and faster than its predecessor. The iPad Air offers some noticeable improvements over the 4th generation iPad, but nothing ground breaking. If you are an iPad fan and want the best Apple has to offer, this is the device for you. The iPad Air remains at the high end of the tablet market starting at $499 for the 16GB model. It's available to purchase now.
