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. Incredibly powerful. But not power

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

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

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.

All your files. All right there.

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.

Safe. And secure.

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.

Your privacy matters.

At Apple, we don’t build a profile based on your email 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 email or your messages to get information to market to you. Our software and services are designed to make our devices better. Plain and simple.

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

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.
