Description

The iPad Air 2 is technically Apple's sixth generation iPad, and the second to carry the 'Air' moniker. It's slightly thinner than the original Air, but differs little in appearance. The main changes are under the hood: the tablet runs on iOS 8 and is powered by Apple's A8X chip, and it gets a higher-resolution 8-megapixel camera.
