With iCloud, you can sync your iPad Air to your other iOS devices and Mac computers. Push photos, download apps and continue from where you left off in iBooks with iCloud. iCloud also offers cloud storage so you can back up your contacts, photos and important documents to Apple’s cloud servers. You can restore your iPad Air to a previous state using iCloud.
- Thinner & Lighter
The iPad Air lives up to its name. It’s thinner at 7.5mm and weighs just 1 pound (1.05 pounds for the cellular version). Apple shaved almost a quarter of the volume of the previous-generation iPad. While it is lightweight, the iPad Air is still durable, thanks to its aluminum unibody construction.
The Retina Display provides 4 times more pixels and 44% greater color saturation than the iPad 2. Within the 9.7″ LED-backlit touchscreen, the 2048 x 1536 native resolution render text and images at 264 pixels per inch and a total of over 3.1 million pixels. The display also features a fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating for increased resolution during use. The width of the iPad Air has been reduced, thanks to smaller side bezels, allowing you to view more of the screen.
- Dual-Core A7 Chip
Thanks to the A7 chip, apps run faster on the iPad Air. Games are more responsive and everything you do with the iPad Air feels quicker. It’s up to twice as quick as the previous-generation iPad. It also supports OpenGL ES version 3.0, enabling detailed graphics and visual effects once only possible on desktop computers and game consoles. And the A7 chip features 64-bit architecture, opening the door for even more robust and powerful apps.
- M7 Coprocessor
iPad Air was designed to be on the move. That’s why the M7 coprocessor measures motion from your iPad Air by pulling data from the accelerometer, gyroscope, and compass. This allows your apps to give you a better experience based on the movement of your iPad Air. It’s a task that would normally fall to the A7 chip. But M7 is more efficient at it, which saves on power and opens up the A7 chip to focus on other tasks.
- Battery Life
iPad Air may be faster and more powerful, but it’s not more power hungry. Even though it’s 20 percent thinner and up to twice as fast as the previous-generation iPad, it still gives you the same 10-hour battery life. That’s because the A7 chip isn’t just more powerful, but utilizes low voltage to be more efficient.
- 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi
With twice the Wi-Fi performance, thanks to two antennas and MIMO (multiple-input multiple-output) technology, the iPad Air can reach download speeds of up to 300 Mbps. With dual-band (2.4GHz and 5GHz) 802.11n Wi-Fi and MIMO, that’s double the data rate of the previous-generation iPad. So now when you want to download a movie, share photos or documents with AirDrop, or just browse the web, your connection is even faster than before.
- FaceTime HD Camera
Sometimes it’s nice to put a face to the conversation. And with FaceTime video calls on iPad Air, your conversations look better than before. Make a video call over Wi-Fi or cellular and see (or show) every expression on the beautiful display. Now the FaceTime HD camera features a next-generation backside illumination sensor with larger pixels, which brightens up all your FaceTime chats, selfies, and group Photo Booth shots, even in low-light situations.
5-Megapixel iSight Camera
The 5-megapixel iSight camera on iPad Air was designed to help you capture all of life’s moments at a moment’s notice. Use the Retina display as an easy viewfinder to frame the perfect shot. Quickly swipe between capturing stills or 1080p Full HD video. Every time you shoot, the image signal processor in the A7 chip works with the camera to make a ton of adjustments and deliver a great picture or video automatically.
- iOS 7
Apple has refined the typography, redrawn every icon around a new grid system, and added a precise color palette for a minimalist design with iOS 7. iOS 7 improves and adds features to the iPad Air. The Control Center is where you have access to the most common setting options like Airplane Mode, volume, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Camera, AirPlay and more. iOS 7 also introduces AirDrop, where you can share photos, videos, and contacts from any app with a Share button. iOS 7 also introduces iTunes Radio (only available in the US), which lets you build your own stations and listen to your favorite songs. You can also view the history of everything you’ve heard and added to your Wish List and then download them off iTunes.
iCloud functions as a wireless service for you to keep all of your devices in sync and maintain the content throughout them.
Siri lets you use your voice to send messages, schedule meetings, check the latest scores, and more. Ask Siri to do things just by talking. Siri understands what you say, knows what you mean and even talks back.
AirPlay functions off of the wireless capabilities of the iPad Air and allows you to seamlessly watch or listen to your content on your HDTV. When connected to the same wireless network, content can be controlled from the iPad Air and ported through or watched on auxiliary devices.
