      Great product from apple, quality feel and amazing memory capacity

      Well Well Well, it seems as if the tablet market is still owned by Apple. Whereas their phone handsets are failing miserably in the mobile phone world. Their tablet the Ipad continues to go from strength to strength.

      This is a highly recommended item, especially if you have children as it is very user friendly. And the children's apps do not ads, which is something the android apps struggle with.

      The screen resolution is crisp and sharp and watching a movie on the outrageous 128GB storage is absolutely a dream.

      Although you are going to be paying a bit extra for the 128GB I reckon its worth it holistically.
      Only negative is the charging lead that will always end breaking due to the flimsy nature of the design.

      Advantages

      • "not bad good for me"

      Disadvantages

      • "good for taste"

      Good for me maybe good for u to.

      thinner frame

      And Apple has taken some things away. Our calipers tell us that’s 1.2 mm of thickness gone. The new iPad is now 6.3 mm thick, against 7.5 mm for last year's iPad Air.

      Replacing the Apple A7 processor is this year’s new chip, the Apple A8 that features in the iPhone 6. Only this time it’s known as the A8X, with unspecified improvements in its performance.

      What i do now know however is that the Air 2 packs 2 GB of memory, against 1 GB that’s been installed in every iPad since the iPad with Retina display – aka, ‘the iPad 3’.

      Apple claims this processor is 40 percent faster, with graphics 2.5 times better than found in the Apple A7 chip in the first iPad Air.

      I put the chip through some tests of raw speed using the Geekbench 3 benchmark tool. With a single core from its three-core architecture, it scored 1816 points; and multi-core mode it scored 4523 points. That’s up on the 1468 and 2658 results from last year’s model.

      Graphics performance is harder to put a number to at the moment. GFXBench does a good job of showing framerates with some varied simulated games, but a temporary software issue means the final results are not displayed on screen. We’ll update this when a new build that fixes this is released through the App Store soon.

      Touch ID

      Also bringing Apple’s pace-setting tablet up to date is a Touch ID fingerprint sensor, first introduced with the iPhone 5s last year. The Touch ID button feels just like that on recent iPhones. You dab your dab on its little sensor, and the iPad comes to life.

      In use this was very speedy, with the screen quickly unlocking in a fraction of a second after we applied our registered fingertip. It’s a handy feature, if not our favourite revision to the model since we don’t have to start and stop the display anything like as frequently as we daily do on an iPhone.

      This will be an asset if you’re a compulsive shopper on the iTunes Store though, as you can also authenticate to buy apps and media this way, without the tedious typing of your Apple ID password.

      I’ve had a few days to try the iPad Air 2 now. The first impression was very good – as a regular iPad Air
