Thinner, lighter and more powerful that ever before, the iPad Air has a 9.7″ retina display. A much thinner, 43% thinner bezel surrounds the screen and at 7.5mm thick it’s 20% thinner than the iPad 4 and weighs in at just 1 pound! The lights full size tablet in the world!
Having the same A7 CPU that we first saw in the iPhone 5s there’s also the M7 motion chip from the new iPhone.
The iPad Air goes on sale starting November 1st, from just $499, the same price as the existing iPad 4
The new iPad Air is unbelievably thin and light. And yet it’s so much more powerful and capable. With the A7 chip, advanced wireless, and great apps for productivity and creativity — all beautifully integrated with iOS 7 — iPad Air lets you do more than you ever imagined. In more places than you ever imagined.
iPad has always been about the display. And that’s even more true with iPad Air. Because we reduced the width of the device, along with the bezels on the sides of the display. But the size of the stunning Retina display is exactly the same. So your content fills your view more than ever. With a 2048-by-1536 resolution and over 3.1 million pixels, photos and videos pop with detail and text looks razor sharp. Pixels are indiscernible. So all you see is what you want to see.
The A7 chip takes iPad to new heights of power and speed. Thanks to the A7 chip, apps run faster. Games are more responsive. And everything you do with iPad Air feels quicker, because it is quicker. Up to twice as quick, in fact. But that’s just the beginning. It also supports OpenGL ES version 3.0, enabling detailed graphics and visual effects once possible only on desktop computers and game consoles. And the A7 chip features 64-bit architecture, opening the door for even more robust and powerful apps. Which means even more possibilities for what you can do with iPad Air.
