iPad Air 2

Light. Heavyweight.

With iPad, we’ve always had a somewhat paradoxical goal: to create a device that’s immensely powerful, yet so thin and light you almost forget it’s there. A device that helps you do amazing things, without ever getting in your way. iPad Air 2 is all that. And then some.

Not just a thinner display. A beautiful display.

To create the astonishingly thin silhouette of iPad Air 2, we started by redesigning the Retina display, fusing what had been three layers into one. Not only did this make the display thinner, it made it better, with more vivid colors and greater contrast. Then we added an antireflective coating, giving iPad Air 2 one of the least reflective displays of any tablet in the world.

Massive power. In a minimal form.

Not only is iPad Air 2 thinner, it’s also a lot more powerful. We designed a chip, the A8X, that delivers substantially better CPU and graphics performance than its predecessor. In fact, with its 64-bit desktop-class architecture, iPad Air 2 is as powerful as many personal computers. It’s power efficient, too, with a 10-hour battery life that lets you work, play, surf, and shop all day long.

A better experience with every touch

iPad Air 2 runs iOS 9, the most intuitive, advanced and secure mobile operating system in the world. If it feels like iOS 9 was made for iPad, it’s because it was. With improved apps and new features like Slide Over, Split View, and Picture in Picture, iOS 9 helps you get more done in powerful yet simple ways. Whether you’re checking messages while answering email or creating a presentation while watching the big game, iOS 9 helps you get more out of iPad than ever before.
