So capable, you won't want to put it down. So thin and light you won't have to.

iPad Air 2 has a re-engineered Retina display,
revolutionary Touch ID fingerprint sensor,
powerful A8X chip, improved iSight and FaceTime
HD cameras, and even faster wireless. And it's
all in a durable aluminum enclosure that's only
6.1 millimeters thin. So you can take it just
about anywhere. And do just about anything.

A8X chip. Powerful. But not power hungry.

From launching apps to playing games to editing video, everything is more fluid
and responsive on iPad Air 2. That's because the all-new A8X chip with 64-bit
desktop-class architecture provides 40 percent faster CPU performance than the
A7 chip in the previous iPad Air. It also has 2.5 times the graphics performance.
And yet iPad Air 2 still gives you up to 10 hours of battery life.1

Touch ID. Security based on a one-of-a-kind design: Your fingerprint.

With the revolutionary Touch ID fingerprint
sensor, you can use your fingerprint to unlock
your iPad Air 2 and sign in to secure apps. You
can also use it to make purchases from iTunes,
the iBooks Store, the App Store, or your favorite
apps—all without ever typing your password
or billing information.

Two amazing cameras. Cleverly disguised as an iPad.

The new 8MP iSight camera has advanced optics, an improved sensor, and a more powerful
image signal processor that let you capture incredibly detailed photos and 1080p video.
You can also shoot high-resolution panoramas and time-lapse and slo-mo videos. The
FaceTime HD camera is better than ever for video calls and selfies, especially in low light.2
The Retina display isn't just a great viewfinder, it also helps make iPad Air 2 the perfect way
to shoot, edit, and share your photos and videos. And there are many apps that take
advantage of the built-in cameras, so you can do things like analyze your golf swing, virtually
move furniture around your living room, or scan and store documents and receipts.

Faster wireless. Good things come to those who don't wait.

With iPad Air 2, staying connected has never been easier or faster. It comes with
802.11ac Wi-Fi with MIMO, which is over twice as fast as Wi-Fi on the previous iPad Air.
So you can surf the web, stream video, and download content faster than ever. And the
Wi-Fi + Cellular model supports faster LTE networks and even more LTE bands to
help you get better connections in more places around the world.3

iPad Air 2 and iOS 8 are engineered to
work seamlessly together, creating a
great user experience in an environment
that's designed to be highly secure.
Because iOS is engineered with such
a focus on security, most of the mobile
malware in the world ends up on other
platforms. And we're always working to
make it even more secure. We lead the
industry in delivering operating system
updates as quickly as possible, and
we make it easy for you to download
and install updates on your iPad to take
advantage of our latest protections.

Safe. And secure.

At Apple, we don't build a profile based on your e-mail content or Web browsing habits to
sell to advertisers. We don't "monetize" the information you store on your iPad or in iCloud.
And we don't read your e-mail or your messages to get information to market to you. Our
software and services are designed to make our devices better. Plain and simple.

Your privacy matters.

iPad Air 2 comes with great built-in apps for doing the things you do every day. And you can be
even more productive and creative with Apple-designed apps that let you create presentations,
retouch photos, make movies, compose music, and more. iPad Air 2 also runs many of the apps
you're already familiar with—like Microsoft Word and Excel. And there are hundreds of thousands
of other apps made just for iPad in the App Store. So whether you're interested in photography,
gaming, travel, or personal finance, you'll find an app that will help you do it better.

The apps you already use. And great new ones, too.

You can store your photos, videos, and other files right on iPad Air 2. Or you can use iCloud to
access them securely from anywhere.4 You can also store and manage them with third-party
apps and services like Dropbox and Google Drive. And with just a tap, you can use AirDrop to
quickly and easily share your documents and files with people nearby. No setup required.

All your files. All right there.

iPad Air 2 has a great onscreen keyboard, but if you want to use a physical keyboard
there are many options available—including the Apple Wireless Keyboard and
third-party Bluetooth keyboards. You can also print from iPad Air 2 using AirPrint, a
technology that's supported by most wireless printers. And with AirPlay and Apple TV,
you can stream everything on your iPad Air 2 wirelessly to your HDTV.

You can type, print, and watch. With no strings attached.
