Apple iPad Air Series Compared To The Previous Versions Of Apple iPad, How much Better?
The iPad Air series was first tablet powered by a 64-bit chip. The series has two types of iPads: the original iPad Air and iPad Air 2. While the series has a few areas that are better than the other iPad versions, not all areas are superior. Here is how the series compares to the other versions:
This is the first thing that you notice on any device. iPad Air made the first major design change for the iPad versions since iPad 2. iPad Air is 240 mm x 169.5 mm x 7.5 mm and 469 g. This makes it the smallest, thinnest full-sized iPad ever made. While it’s thinner, its screen is similar to that found on iPad Mini. The change in thickness resulted in a reduction in the weight of the device. The change in design resulted in a 22% reduction in weight of the device. The small size and weight reductions make it easy for you to carry the device around.
While the iPad uses the same 9.7-inch retina display as the previous iPad models, the series has a better front-facing camera that makes FaceTime a much better experience. The new front-facing camera has a 720 p HD that includes backside illumination and face detection. Apple also upgraded the rear camera where in addition to the features found in the other versions, the rear camera in iPad Air has hybrid IR filter, 5 MP CMOS, and a fixed f/.24 aperture.
Just like other iPad versions such as iPad 4, Retina iPad mini, and the original iPad mini, it runs on iOS 7 and connects to iCloud. This means that you can run all the software programs that you are interested in from the App store. You can also manage your emails, contacts, calendars, and backup your data just like other iPads. iPad air is powered by the 2013 Apple A7 chipset and Apple M7 motion coprocessor. According to experts, this is the most powerful processor to have been installed on a tablet. This makes the device super fast.
Like its predecessors, iPad Air is made from aluminum and this makes it 100% recyclable. When it comes to color, unlike the other versions that have a black front and white back, it has a gray and black front and silver and white back. The most attractive feature of the series is that it comes in different storage options. It comes in 16, 32, 64, or 128 GB of internal flash memory. Unfortunately, you can’t expand the memory.
That is how the series is different from the other iPad versions. While the device is lightweight and thinner, it has a large screen that makes it ideal for watching videos, reading books and other related tasks. Just like the other devices, you have to take good care of it for it to last for a long time.
