The newly launched Apple iPad Air 2 is really a good innovation that Apple handled to bring in 2014. It’s massive design and specs are awesome.
If we talk about the camera configuration in newly launched iPad Air 2, the front FaceTime HD camera takes pictures in resolution of 1.2 megapixels and records the video in 720p. In normal light it will be enough for self-portraits or video.
The main camera iSight, which leads shooting using 8 megapixel sensor with an aperture f / 2.4, Apple’s paid more attention. The Company does not seek to equalize tablets and smartphones on the quality of shooting, so the new iPad is still inferior to its capabilities of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus – lower aperture, the smaller the size of the pixel in the matrix, there is no phase AF. But among tablets camera can safely be called one of the best. And compared to the old generation is a clear step forward.
In the settings offered the following options: Shooting HDR, face detection, panorama, timelaps, slow-motion video. Daytime photos in quality comparable to the iPhone 5 or 5S, but in low-light capabilities of the tablet sharply reduced, that is easy to see the results of the shooting.

The main thing is that the new product supports 20 bands LTE, so high speed Internet will work anywhere – no matter what country bought iPad. In the version with SIM-card in the tablet will also support A-GPS and GLONASS, which is not a simple modification to the Wi-Fi. Therefore, such a model would be a practical purchase for those who plan to use the tablet as a navigator.
Wi-Fi now supports standard 802.11ac, as before working in the 2.4 and 5 GHz. With the reception of the signal and the data rate is stable. Bluetooth version 4.0 allows you to broadcast music on the headphones or connect peripherals. For example, using the original Apple Wireless Keyboard on your tablet comfortable to type long texts.
It is important that in the fight to reduce the weight and thickness do not damage the battery backup of iPad Air 2, although due to the reduction of physical size of the device here is to reduce the battery capacity (27.3 Wh). Apple has said that the tablet is able to withstand 10 hours of active use of the device. For half an hour the game in Dead Trigger 2 device lost 7% of the charge, generally the same battery, even with a very active scenarios, enough for a whole day.
In playback mode, Full HD video at maximum brightness tablet lasted nine o’clock. The day iPad Air 2 defuse possible, but it means that it is virtually not have to let go. If using the device occasionally, spending a couple of hours with it in the evening or in the transport of charge warranty will last for several days.
Novelty improved in all respects: there was actual fingerprint scanner, updated display, camera and “iron”. For the first time in a mobile device Apple offered 2 GB of RAM, the tablet still works the same way for a long time, but it was thinner and lighter. In general, Air 2 is guaranteed to interest anyone who wants to get the Apple tablet with maximum performance.
