The world’s newest tablet the iPad Air and it’s younger brother have just come out packing a serious punch under the hood. The new iPad Air and iPad Mini usher in the next generation of tablet computing. Apple takes a new step into the future with its iPad and makes the accessibility and ease of use better. Here’s a preview of what you should expect from the new iPads:
The Speed: the new iPads bring in new technology with an all new chip (which Apple dubs as the A7 chip) along with a new chip called the M7 chip which is solely focused on motion. All of this along with a 64-bit architecture. 64-bit is basically the architecture that is seen on desktop computers and allows for more processing power and multitasking speed.
The Slim: The new iPad’s, especially the Air, rock a really thin unibody that we first saw with the first iPad mini. The Air finally reaches the 1 pound goal of a full size tablet which is quite unique since the iPad is packing a ton of hardware. It’s only 0.71 mm thin and uses the same building idea as the iPad mini creating a very nice sturdy finish which is hyped to feel better in the hand.
The OS: It runs on the new iOS 7 and this iPad will be the second device built on the platform, now there have been a lot of complaints about the OS draining the battery so it will be interesting to see the new iPads ability to stay alive through the day.
The Screen: now both iPads rock the retina display that we see on so many Apple devices which just creates a beautiful viewing experience. It will be interesting to see how well it it will look on the new iPad mini whose smaller screen can already create a amazing picture because of it’s smaller compact size.
The new iPads are a unique view into the future of Apple design and what we might see coming in the next generation of chips and software. For now you can expect both to deliver the same speed and usability that we have all grown accustomed to with Apple products.
