With iPad, we’ve always had a somewhat paradoxical goal: to create a device that’s immensely powerful, yet so thin and light you almost forget it’s there. A device that helps you do amazing things, without ever getting in your way. iPad Air 2 is all that. And then some.
Security based on a one‑of‑a‑kind design: your ﬁngerprint.
iPad Air 2 comes with our breakthrough Touch ID technology. It gives you an unprecedented level of security because it uses nature’s most perfect password: your fingerprint. So with just one touch, you can instantly unlock your iPad Air 2. But Touch ID goes beyond that. You can also make secure purchases in iTunes, iBooks, and the App Store. And with Apple Pay, you can unlock an entire world of online shopping that’s fast, convenient, and secure.
The technology behind Touch ID.
The Home button on iPad Air 2 is made from a sapphire crystal surrounded by a stainless steel ring. When you touch the button, the steel ring detects your finger and the crystal sends an image of your fingerprint to a sensor. Software then reads the ridges of your print and confirms a match. And it all happens in the blink of an eye.
DesignSo capable, you won’t want to put it down. So thin and light, you won’t have to.
The ﬁrst thing you’ll notice is how incredibly thin and light it is. iPad Air 2 is an impossibly thin 6.1 millimeters, making it our thinnest iPad ever. And it weighs less than a pound. So it’s even easier to hold in one hand and take with you anywhere.
Ingenuity makes it thin.
Aluminum makes it strong.
When it was introduced four years ago, the original iPad set the standard for thinness and lightness. Since then, iPad has become even thinner and lighter. But thanks to its durable aluminum unibody, iPad Air 2 doesn’t sacriﬁce strength in the pursuit of thinness. From the moment you pick it up, you feel how sturdy and rigid it is.
Not just a thinner display.
A better display.
The displays on previous generations of iPad used three separate components. iPad Air 2 changes all that, combining those three layers into just one. This eliminates gaps between layers, along with the internal reﬂectance caused by those gaps. The result? Colors are richer, contrast is greater, and images are sharper and more vivid.
Your content, right at your ﬁngertips.
The LCD layer is now closer to your eyes (and your ﬁngers), so when you touch the screen it feels as if you’re touching your content. And we’ve improved the sensitivity of the screen, so it tracks your finger even more accurately, especially when you make quick gestures. Which means everything you do — playing games, surﬁng the web, enjoying photos and videos — becomes more personal, immediate, and immersive.
The lowest reﬂectance of any tablet.
iPad Air 2 features a custom-designed antireflective coating that reduces glare by 56 percent, making it the least reﬂective tablet in the world. In virtually any kind of environment — oﬃces, classrooms, outdoors — everything is clearer and more readable.
Every detail counts.Even the ones measured in microns.
The beveled edges of the aluminum unibody are cut with a mono-crystalline diamond to tolerances measured in microns. (For reference, the width of a human hair is about 75 microns.) That level of detail may seem excessive. But every detail adds up to a better overall experience.
