|You have to hold iPad Air to believe it. It’s just 7.5 millimetres thin and weighs less than half a kilo.|
Finally, the much anticipated Apple product – the iPad Air is all geared up for its launch in India. The hype is as expected on a trail blaze as the launch weekend is quickly approaching. And as it has always been observed; the rumours about the product has started doing rounds already. Listed here are a few certain things that you should add to your personal Apple iPad knowledge bank just to help you show off a bit, before the official release!
The Thick And Thin Of It
The iPad Air sheds 0.1 inch (1.2mm) of height, 0.71 inch (16.2mm) of width, and 0.05” of depth (1.3mm) versus the iPad 2, losing a more noticeable 0.33 pounds of weight in Wi-Fi and 0.3 pounds of weight in cellular.
The biggest spec change is the iPad mini is the retina display’s jump from 163ppi 1024x768 resolution to 326ppi 2048x1536 resolution. Apple has bumped both new iPads’ front cameras with improved backside illumination sensors, which appear to be the same parts found in the iPhone 5c and 5s, likely to yield small but welcome improvements to color rendition in low lighting.
iPad Air will feature dual microphones. Apple’s official photograph shows the second microphone resting lower on each iPad’s upper back than the first one, centred roughly behind the Face Time HD camera.
This Is Not True
Rumours were that the new iPads would get improved rear cameras, Touch ID sensors, and other externally obvious frills, but this has certainly turned out to be inaccurate. They both have 5MP rear cameras with the same specs as their predecessors. Gold iPads are also not in the offering this year.
Covers and Smart Cases
Apple will be offering iPad Air Smart covers in six different colors, plus leather iPad Air Smart cases in six colors. Not mentioned: the new covers are three-segmented rather than four, a change carried over from the iPad mini version. Apple has also got rid of the metal exterior hinge — a design element that previously added some class to the otherwise plasticky lids. The leather iPad covers appear to be gone unless you want them with a case attached.
