Apple iPad Air 2 to keep the typical 10-hour battery life, despite its record thin design
Battery life is no longer one of the greatest advantages of Apple’s tablets, as now Android, and even Windows slates, can run videos all day long before dying out. Apple just bragged that it is sticking with the 10-hour battery formula for the iPad Air 2, which is plenty, and in line with the competition. Given the record slim, 6.1mm iPad Air 2 profile, however, achieving the same battery life endurance is actually a big deal. We'll wait for the first disassembly of the Air 2 to learn about the battery capacity, but something tells us that a vast part of the guts inside the 6.1mm chassis are battery components.
