The new age of technology has given rise to an ample of gadgets that change the way we live our lives. Ipad is sure no different gadget. It has revolutionized the way we carry our personal or business data and the way we portray that to the others. Ipad Air is a new addition to the ipad family and the name air comes from its size as its indeed as light as air itself.
PROS – The iPad Air delivers more performance and comparable battery life in an attractive and impossibly thin-and-light package. An improved front-facing camera makes FaceTiming look better, and the Retina Display still looks great.
CON- The Touch ID fingerprint scanner, introduced on the iPhone 5S, is sadly absent here, meaning you’ll still have to type in a passcode with every unlock and a password with every purchase. Starting at $499 for 16GB, it’s still expensive compared with the competition.
The Bottom Line – Functionally, the iPad Air is nearly identical to last year’s model, offering only faster performance and better video chatting. But factor in design and aesthetics, and the iPad Air is on another planet. It’s the best full-size consumer tablet on the market.
