    Re: Apple iPad Air vs iPad Air 2 Comparison

    Design:

    The design of the new iPad Air 2 looks very similar to the previous iPad Air but it has a more streamlined design. The iPad Air has an anti-glare display coating on the top of the screen. But there is no difference on the weight and size in the iPad Air 2.

    The new iPad Air 2 comes with a finger print sensor which first came with the iPhone 5S. The fingerprint sensor allows us to use the new Apple Pay feature and make the payments or also shop with your credit card.

    Performance:

    The Apple iPad Air 2 is powered by an Apple A8X processor and has the 40% faster CPU performance when it is compared to the older Apple iPad Air. The processor used on the new iPad Air 2 is even faster than the Apple iPhone 6 processor which is Apple A8 SoC.

    The iPad Air 2 also comes with a M8 co-processor which is takes care of all the motions and pairs better with the health or fitness apps. It is so strong, that the M8 co-processor can tell the difference between cycling, walking or running. This co-processor even measures the weather, distance and elevation. The performance part on the graphic side is quite fast and it is actually 2.5 times powerful than the iPad Air. The gaming performance is going to be real smooth without any dropped frames and fluid performance.

    Camera:

    Apple has improved the camera on the new iPad Air 2. The camera on the iPad Air was not that great but comparing with the iPad Air, the camera on the iPad Air 2 is far much better. Apple has [provided the same 8.0MP sensor that is on the iPhone 6 for beautiful pictures. There are much better improvements when compared with the iPad Airís camera which was 5.0MP iSight camera.

    Apple iPad Air and Apple iPad Air 2 can both take panorama pictures, shoot seflies with the burst mode enabled, also can shoot time lapse videos and also both the iPadís can record full HD videos that is 10080p. The Apple iPad Air 2 comes with a better image sensor and has better signal processor that helps you to improve the face detection.

    Re: Apple iPad Air vs iPad Air 2 Comparison

    Conclusion:

    There is not a big change when compared to the iPad Air. There are certain changes which do counts like the 8.0MP iSight camera comparing to the 5.0MP iSight camera, Touch ID fingerprint sensor on home button, Anti-Glare Coating on top of the display and a faster processor that gives you faster performance and better gaming graphics.

    Apple iOS 8.0 will work on both the devices and you can enjoy all the features of iOS 8.0 on both the devices except a feature of Touch ID fingerprint sensor that is not present on the Apple iPad Air. If iPad Air would have had that feature, it would have used the Apple Pay feature directly on your iPad Air.

    If these things do really counts for you, you should get an Apple iPad Air 2 and if it doesnít means to you or you are happy with your iPad Air, then itís all your will. There is not a big difference on the price; just a $100 up you will get an iPad Air 2. Apple iPad Air 2 is a complete tablet out now which as everything to offer from performance to battery life.
