Apple IPad Air 2 64GB WiFi Review
Apple seems to constantly shave off a bit of each device’s depth and when it comes to the new Apple iPad Air 2 64GB WiFi, they seem to have done a great job, by reducing its depth with 18% and bringing it to a mere 6.1mm value. The other two dimensions preserve the sizes inherited from the first iPad Air, which make the device perfect for a new iteration of the 9.7 inch Retina display. However, this time, Apple decided to look more into antiglare features and it added screen coating which reduces glare with up to 56%.
Although the appearance differences are few between the iPad Air and the second version, you might want to know what the in-depth changes that took place over time are. Probably the most important feature of the new tablet is the A8X processor packed within the device, an upgraded version of the iPhone 6’s A8 processor. Sensors within the tablet, such as the gyroscope or the compass, but the brand new barometer, as well, are coordinated by the M8 coprocessor, specially incorporated for them.
The camera of the Apple iPad Air 2 64GB WiFi has been significantly improved since the first Air version, although it’s still lagging behind a bit, considering it was taken from the iPhone 5 devices. The f/2.4 aperture of the 8MP camera should be enough for any photo and video fan, given the fact that burst mode is a possibility, together with slow-motion video filmed at 120fps, using the 720p standard resolution. The front camera has been refreshed, as well, so that the FaceTime HD camera allows you to create selfies in the burst mode, so you can easily choose the one that seems perfect.
The new Apple iPad Air 2 64GB WiFi benefits from an enhanced WiFi system, so that speeds of up to 2.8x the original iPad Air ones can be achieved. This is possible due to the 802.11ac protocol used, which replaces the “older” n-system. Thanks to this, speeds of up to 866Mbps can be achieved while using the wireless network on an Air 2 tablet. If you worry that such a download speed and a download process used over extensive periods of time would drain the battery quite fast, you should think twice. The tablet has a pretty big 7,340 mAh battery, which is smaller than the battery installed in the previous device, but still extremely strong, so that you can spend at least 10 hours having fun on the tablet.
Just as its name implies, this tablet comes with a generous 64GB storage space, which should be more than enough for anything you might want to store; apps don’t get even close to filling such space, whereas thousands of hours of music and hundreds of hours of movie might do the trick. If you also care about the looks of the tablet, you might opt for a brand new gold finish or for the already established silver and of course, Space Grey.
