    Best Tablet Available

    |
    Posted .

    The iPad Air was great, but the iPad Air 2 is even better--faster, better display, thinner, and slightly lighter. The addition of the fingerprint scanner makes it a lot more convenient to unlock, and the gold color looks great. I didn't have an iPhone at the time I had the iPad Air, so I don't know if it would have also done this, but the iPad communicates with the iPhone so that it basically becomes a huge iPhone. Text messages and phone calls both go to both the iPhone and the iPad. It blew my mind the first time I got a call on the iPad, because I hadn't realized it would do that. It was awesome, though--had left the iPhone in another room, and just had the iPad with me. Since it also gets calls I didn't miss the call. I LOVE the iPad Air 2.

    time to upgrade

    |
    Posted .

    Apple seems to release a new ipad every year, making it financially unwise to purchase a new one every year. While I love the cellular ipad 2 I bought on launch day, every model since has only been marginally better than the year before, not justifiable for an upgrade imho. I have used the ipad 2 every day without fail and will continue to use the new one even more. Comparing these 2 models now, my old ipad 2 is a stationwagon that i'm replacing with a Porsche. The performance of the current model will be competitive for years to come. And thanks to Best Buys trade in offer I was able to get the new air 2 for $200 less. My old ipad, having had a more than full life and still in pristine condition, might serve someone else for a few years too.

    Best ipad yet, by far

    |
    Posted .

    I had a second generation ipad before purchasing this one. The Air 2 is a great leap forward in the sharpness of the screen, processing speed -- much superior in every way. I am a heavy user: the ipad goes with me on weekly business trips instead of my laptop. An app that accesses my laptop files worked only sporadically on the old ipad. On the Air 2 it is consistent and fast. That's just one example. I highly recommend it.

    Perfect Gift For My Wife!

    |
    Posted .

    I bought this for my wife and, even though it sounds dramatic, it really changed her life... well, at least how she reads the news. I haven't read a physical newspaper in years and couldn't understand why my wife insisted on buying a paper. The iPad did the trick. She reads books and the news on it... watches movies, does internet research, keeps up with her email and text messages (she has an iPhone so she gets the text messages on her iPad as well, which is surprisingly convenient). She uses her iPad every day at home and always takes it when she travels. She didn't ask for it and didn't really know how much she would use it, but I had an inkling... and now if it broke we would buy another immediately. Having said that, it's been extremely reliable and is built very well. It certainly seems like it will last until we want to upgrade!

    Insanely fast!

    I upgraded from a fourth generation iPad to the Air 2. I'm extremely impressed with it. It's extremely fast in everything it does, and there's no lag on any apps that I've seen. Games run beautifully and smoothly. The construction is fantastic as well. It definitely looks and feels like a high-end device. I honestly can't think of one thing I don't like about it! I'd urge any older-gen iPad owner to upgrade. It's well worth the money!

    Trick to activate cellular

    |
    Posted .

    5 people didn't know this so I thought I would mention it... You don't have to activate it and commit to a long term plan or add it to you existing cellular plan unless you want to. This iPad comes with a programable microSIM card which can be used with any provider. I chose a pay-as-go AT&T plan so I can buy one month at a time whenever I need/want to use cellular. Everyone is going to want to sell you an expensive plan, you don't have to go that route.

    Great for 1st time buyers or upgrades

    |
    Posted .

    Upgraded from the mini 2 and for the same price as the 64GB from Apple, I got 128GB. IMHO the iPad Pro 9.7" is not worth the price difference from the Air 2. I use my iPad casually to check emails, read news, and to play a few games. Having all the extra space should save me from having to upgrade for a few years.

    Nice upgrade

    |
    Posted .

    I have had the original IPad, then the 3rd generation, then the Air and now the Air2. I thought it frivolous to upgrade if I had the Air1 but the 2 is better. It is faster, and the screen has less glare and perhaps it may be easier to read items under brighter conditions. Also, it seems to sync nicely with my new IPhone 6. If you like the latest and the greatest why not step up? It was worth it particularly when a trade in is offered. Also, having the ability to switch services could be a nice feature too. There is so much more, but the bottom line is that I am enjoying it.

    Nice upgrade on many counts

    |
    Posted .

    I upgraded to this version from the 3rd gen iPad. This new version is a nice bump on many counts. It's smaller, lighter, offers the 128gb option,and finally offers the fingerprint sensor. It's also runs faster. I've omly 2 gripes. First if you are with Verizon the carrier isn't playing with Apples new soft sim so you have to get a sim swap but Best Buy handled it on the spot vs the Apple Store which sent my Mother to the Verizon store. Secondly I wish there was a bit more flexibility with multitasking. Neither felt like a huge deal so leaving at 5 stars.

    Love it

    With the new iPad Air, I decided to go all the way. 128 G WiFi and cellular, and I love it. The photo quality is definitely improved and that is saying a lot since the photos on the older models were good. It is fast, the battery holds a charge much longer than the oder ones, and its an Apple product. I can't say enough good things about it, except if you are considering making the change, go for it. It is well worth the money. I also love the service I received at Best Buy. I went in 30 minutes before closing time, knowing exactly what I wanted, and the sales clerk was happy to help me. He looked it up and said yes they had it, but then he couldn't find it. Before it was all over, there were two looking. I was getting worried when they came by and said "we have one more place to look" but they came back smiling, with my new iPad in their hand. (This was Christmas week so it was crazy time). Even though it was so close to closing time, he was cheerful, very helpful, even let me grab a case before he rang me up. I can't say enough about my iPad. Going from iPad 3 to the iPad Air 2 was an amazing upgrade. The service at Best Buy in Peoria was amazing!

    My new favorite thing

    |
    Posted .

    This iPad is literally my new best friend. It is so lightweight, and it is a great alternative to carrying my bulky MacBook Pro to school every day. I love it. The only thing with iPads are that a lot of iPhone apps are not customized for the iPad, so a lot of them look like zoomed in iPhone screens, which can be annoying and definitely leaves room for improvement on app developers' part (especially Snapchat and Instagram). And why is there no iPad calculator?! Other than that, the interface is so intuituve, and I love using my iPad for browsing and taking notes. It might not be the iPad Pro, but it's still such a great investment!

    Upgrade from an iPad 2

    |
    Posted .

    A lot of improvements since the iPad 2 I used to own. Lighter, faster, 8 MP camera, Touch ID, and in my case tons of memory. My old pad " only " had 32 GB of memory. I found myself deleting apps just to make room for more apps, photos, videos etc. It might take me a few years to fill this one up :) I had to return the first one I bought because for some unknown reason, after the first week, I couldn't turn it off. Best buy, gave me a replacement on the spot, no questions asked. Great customer service on that occasion. The only beef I had was a white Bezel was your only choice. Non of the stores had space grey with a black bezel. A black bezel helps with contrast and framing, especially when viewing media. I am getting more used to it now, but still wish more black bezels were available. Guess it's a difficult call to anticipate what customers will need when a product is put out to fickle consumers. Anyway, I'm pleased overall with the tablet and hope that with the next generation of iPad they will make bezel color choice more available. Who knows, the next generation "Pad " might not have a bezel ??? :)

    Perfect tablet size.

    |
    Posted .

    Great battery life. Perfect size for reading and working since it is just a little smaller than a piece of A4 paper. To me, Pro is too big for a tablet and Mini is too small. The portability of the Mini is great but since my phone can do everything I need and it is not much smaller, I decided to get the Air 2. The chip in the Air 2 is great for a tablet use, even though it is a year old but it is still faster than the newer Mini 4.

    Best tablet out there!

    I have never been an Apple gal but my son has Autism and needed an iPad for his therapies. Only iPad has the best special education and therapy apps out there. There are many pros for the iPad Air 2 and the only con would be that you can't expand with an SD card but 128gb of space will go an incredibly long way and last for many years to come. It is lightweight without being delicate and the fingerprint reader is very convenient! There are many things I've yet to explore on it since my son absolutely loves it too. Even though I've never been into Apple products I have to admit that this was one of the best choices I've ever made for a technology purchase!

    Fantastic iPad for the price

    |
    Posted .

    I purchased this iPad as a birthday gift for my daughter. It was on clearance and for the price it was hard to beat. The iPad is mainly used to keep my daughter entertained on long drives when the family is out and about or on a long road trip. My only complaint which is not related to the iPad itself but more so Apple policy, is that I can't stream iTunes movies/shows purchases over cellular data nor can I download them w/o being connected to a wi-fi network. This in my opinion makes a mobile device not so mobile. Just my 2 cents anyways.

    Expensive, but you get what you pay for

    Silky smooth graphics and nice sharp screen. Replaced an iPad 2 that I've used for about 4 years with this one. I was constantly struggling with space and dealing with choppy video and stuttering apps on the old iPad. Because of those issues, I decided to go with the latest version and max memory on this one even though the cost was a little steep. I'm glad I did. I don't need or use the cellular part, but got it just in case I wanted to use it in the future. I don't see any reason (other than an accident......) that I won't be able to use this one for longer than 4 years.

    Cellular and large storage was a great choice

    |
    Posted .

    The tablet is quick and has been perfect for work and play. The display is very bright and comfortable to read. From spreadsheets to remote PC desktop connections, I'm able to view much more compared to my mini with retina. It's very thin so it's comfortable to hold. The cellular connection works great, it lasts at least 9hrs with moderate use. I haven't been able to fill the 128gb storage but it's nice to have, especially for the future.

    I had own the iPad 1,4,and IPad Mini.....this the the best one to date. I also own a MacBook and two MacBook Pro. I find that my IPad Air 2 is use way more then any of my computer. I can even think of getting any other table. You can't go wrong with the latest version of the IPad it's the next thing to having a MacBook Air.

    All I expected

    Upgraded from the ipad 3. I'd been holding out to see when ipad improvements seemed to taper off and with no ipad air 3 announced, I went with this. Didn't notice how much lighter and easier to handle it was until picking up my old one after a few days. Just set up the cellular service through verizon and it works great, nice being able to use this as a hotspot in a pinch.

    I upgraded from an iPad 3 and I'm glad I did. This new version is thinner and lighter and I love the fingerprint scanner. It is also faster. Even with the new leather apple case on it it seems to weigh next to nothing. I haven't played with the new preinstalled apps yet but I'm looking forward to checking them out. I originally wanted the 64g but with high demand around the holidays I just couldn't seem to catch it in stock but I wasn going to let that stop me from putting a new iPad Air 2 under the tree. Having the 128g just means I won't run out of memory anytime soon!
