A Thinner iPad

Apple Announces iPad Air and new iPad mini with Retina Display      23/10/13

A Thinner iPad


Apple has announced iPad Air, the latest generation of the device, featuring a 9.7-inch Retina display in a thinner and lighter design and weighing just one pound. Apple also announced a new iPad mini with Retina display, bringing all the pixels from the 9.7-inch iPad to its 7.9-inch screen, delivering, they say, razor sharp text and detail in the same thin and light design. Apple tells us that both new iPad models feature the powerful and power-efficient Apple-designed A7 chip with 64-bit desktop-class architecture, ultrafast wireless with faster built-in Wi-Fi and expanded LTE cellular connectivity, and iOS 7 featuring hundreds of great new features.

Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing, had this to say, "iPad created an entirely new mobile computing experience, and the new iPad Air is another big leap ahead. It is so thin, light and powerful, once you hold one in your hand you will understand what a tremendous advancement this is."
