First iPad Air 2 Reviews
Robert Galbraith/ReutersApple CEO Tim Cook holds an iPad during a presentation at Apple headquarters in Cupertino, California October 16, 2014. Last week Apple unveiled the iPad Air 2, and the reviews are out: it's great, but not revolutionary. The original iPad Air turned in the best tablet battery life I've ever seen on my test: 12 hours and 13 minutes - about 90 minutes longer. TechCrunch called the Air 2 "The best tablet available" because of its A8X processor: The new iPad Air is unique among Apple's lineup of products in offering the A8X processor, an enhanced version of the chip that Apple released in September to power the new iPhone lineup. The Verge had a more negative outlook, saying the iPad Air 2 was "Mostly just thinner." To be sure, no one is calling the iPad Air 2 a bad tablet. Apple has set the bar so high with the iPhone that consumers have begun to expect every Apple product to revolutionize their lives. The iPad Air 2 is a small jump forward, not a monumental leap.
