iPad Air 2 Unveiled

As expected, Apple unveiled the new iPad Air 2 just about an hour ago at their live special event. It is the thinnest iPad ever at just 6.1mm and said to be the world’s thinnest tablet.

The headline features for the iPad Air 2 are:

Improved Retina Display

2nd gen 64-bit A8X chip designed specifically for the iPad Air 2

New iSight and FaceTime cameras

Faster WiFi

Touch ID

Pretty much inline with the latest rumors we’d heard about the new iPad Air, including the name.

Pre-orders start tomorrow for the new iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3, and shipping begins next week.
