After the big excitement around the release of the new iPhone, the latest Apple launch was fairly subdued in comparison, both because there was no U2 album to cause a furore, and because most of the information released about the latest Apple products had already been guessed by most tech heads within the industry. That being said, here’s the big news you’ll want to know about the new additions to the iPad family:
iPad Air 2
The wi-fi compatible new iPad Air 2 will range from €499 to €699, depending on how much memory you want your tablet to have, and will be the thinnest iPad to date, at a mere 6.1 millimetres. It also comes with new processing power than makes it 40% faster than the previous iPad Air, and an 8 megapixel camera that can capture slow motion and time-lapse video.
iPad Mini 3
There’s not much changing with the new iPad Mini, except for the addition of TouchID, which will have more to do with Apple Pay than anything else. Tech wise, all the stuff inside is the same, and even the camera is still way back with only 5 megapixels. That being said, the base price starts at €399, so it is that bit cheaper than the new Air.
Both the Air 2 and the Mini 3 are available to pre-order now, with orders due to be shipped before the end of October.
