After a long time spread in between, Apple’s iPad Air 2 finally received a proper successor! Technically, the iPad Air (2019) arrives nearly 4.5 years after the iPad Air 2, which is a staggering amount of time in the world of tech. Until the arrival of the iPad Pro, the Air was largely considered the top of the line tablet in Apple’s stable, but if pricing dictates structure, the iPad Air (2019) is now classified as the mid-range offering – sitting in between the iPad (2018) at $350 and the 11-inch version of the iPad Pro (2018) priced at $800. The $500 sticker price of the iPad Air (2019) seems appropriate for any mainstream tablet, but where does it rank in the greater scheme of things?

APPLE has blindsided gadget fans with the surprise launch of a new “miniature” iPad and a new iPad Air this afternoon. The iPad mini 5 is the first new entry to the “mini” series in nearly four years – and features a powerful new processor and support for some hi-tech accessories. Apple first announced the iPad mini series way back in October 2012, giving gadgets fans a smaller (and generally cheaper) tablet option. Rather than the near 10-inch screen featured on the main iPad tablets, an iPad mini has a smaller 7.9-inch display – which makes it more portable, and in some cases even pocketable. But until today, Apple’s most recent iPad mini update came in 2015, which makes the launch of the new iPad mini 5 long overdue. Now the new model supports the Apple Pencil stylus, which is a first for the series. New iPad mini 5 – what you need to know The new iPad mini 5 has a 7.9-inch screen just like previous models. But the specs have been … [Read more...] about Apple unveils new iPad Air and iPad mini 5 with Apple Pencil support in surprise announcement
When we tested iOS 11 on the iPhone 5S, it was clear that it was slower than iOS 10 had been but that the iPhone 5S’ hardware was fast enough to keep everything usable. That’s especially true if you tempered your expectations: the phone was going on four years old at the time. But at the time, some of you asked us to test a handful of other older iOS devices, particularly the A7-equipped iPad Air and Mini 2 and the A8-equipped iPhone 6 Plus. In the iPads, the same A7 CPU and GPU that powers the iPhone 5S’ screen has to adequately support a tablet with more than three times as many pixels. And the A8 in the 6 Plus draws a 2208×1242 image which is then downscaled to the phone’s 1080p screen; that means using a CPU that was around 25 percent faster than the A7 and a GPU that was only 50 percent faster to support a phone with 277 percent as many pixels. The upshot is that those devices can often feel sluggish or laggy compared to subsequent models. Later Apple … [Read more...] about iOS 12 on the iPhone 5S, iPhone 6 Plus, and iPad Mini 2: It’s actually faster!
ProductConditionLocationPriceiPad Air 2 16 GB Wi-FiFactory RefurbishedeBay$179.99As per our iPad buying guide, the iPad Air 2 is a great tablet to purchase, even if Apple has stopped selling it on its website. Currently, if you go to the store, you can either buy a really expensive iPad Pro, or go for the baseline, $330 iPad. But we'd say that hunting for a nice deal on the good ol' Air 2 is a good idea!Why do we like it so much? Well, it's slightly thinner and lighter than the iPad 9.7 and it has an anti-glare coating applied to the display — something that the new unit does not have. The Air 2's hardware is still plenty adequate and its only downside is that it does not support the Apple Pencil stylus.Today, we have a factory refurbished iPad Air 2 16 GB for $179.99 — that's probably the cheapest price we've seen so far.

Feature By Malcolm Owen Wednesday, March 28, 2018, 08:56 am PT (11:56 am ET) The launch of a new iPad is usually followed by users deciding whether they should update to the latest model, or to continue using their existing iPad and save money. AppleInsider compares the new 2018 iPad against last year's release and the iPad Air models to decide if it's worth making the upgrade. Apple's unveiling of the 2018 iPad focused heavily on the usage of the Apple Pencil and how it is an ideal computing device for education. This feature alone may be compelling enough for existing iPad owners to buy the new device, but putting that addition aside for the moment, the iPad on its own is probably enough of an improvement to warrant a purchase. At first glance Looking at the basic specifications of the 2018 iPad in comparison to the 2017 iPad, the iPad Air 2, and iPad Air, there's oddly very little between them all. This is not just in general appearance, but many of the core functions and … [Read more...] about Compared: 2018 iPad with Apple Pencil support vs 2017 iPad and iPad Air 2
