Apple iPad Air 2: all the official images

Apple iPad Air 2: all the official images
The Apple iPad Air 2 has just gone official, and it's now ridiculously thin, as well as light. In fact, the new iPad Air 2 is the 'world's thinnest tablet', while still managing to cram in top-notch silicon.

The iPad Air 2 features a new Apple A8X chip that promises to bring a 40% improvement in CPU performance and 2.5 times in GPU performance, but that is in comparison with the Apple A7, not the iPhone 6 with the A8.

In addition, Apple seems to admit now that tablet photography is a thing, and has included a nicely upgraded camera: it's now an 8-megapixel sensor with 1.12 micron pixels, and an f/2.4 aperture lens. The company has introduced some software features from the iPhone into the iPad lineup, things like slow motion recording at 120 fps (4 times slow-down).

Clearly, the new iPad Air 2 is a lot about the marriage of outer looks with that impressive thinness, and performance. That's why, we've included a gallery of the official iPad Air 2 press images right below. How do you like it?

Yup. Because I'm sure that's what people do with their iPads all day. Stare at the back of them. You have seriously established yourself as one of the biggest trolls on PA.

Ditto for my mini 2, although I have to admit, if I find a good deal on craigslist I will go for it.

I was going to applaud them for getting rid of the Apple logo but its still there in one of the photos. I am surprised that they hide it in all but one picture though.

I have to agree I still have the 3rd gen ipad and don't know if I can justify upgrading. Still works fine as a couch surfer. Touch id would be nice for purchases but can't see that being worth the money to invest in a new ipad. Screen is still the same resolution and battery in mine is still fine. New one is much thiner and lighter also but still not worth buying a new one for that...

Yeah! Almost swept aside all the articles about Android L and the Nexus devices announced just yesterday.
