The beautiful Retina display has an anti-reflective screen, and the Touch ID fingerprint sensor adds an additional layer of security. You’ll also get more built-in storage with up to 128GB of local memory to store your music, videos and more.
The iPad Air takes the iPad’s distinctive look and functionality and streamlines it into a super slim, lightweight form factor. It weighs in at about 480 grams and is a mere 7.5mm thin. It also features an impressive battery life compared to its predecessors with up to 10 hours of surfing time on a WiFi network. The iPad Air is equipped with the 64-bit Apple A7 processor for speedy performance and an improved front-facing camera for super-clear video chats.
The iPad 4th generation, or iPad with Retina Display, showcases stunning visuals with a pixel resolution of 2048 x 1536.
