|As you may expect this iteration of the Air is thinner and lighter than it's forebear. The enhanced retina display has taken previous iPad displays of three layers and eliminated the gaps hopefully giving more vivid colours and less internal reflection. The performance of the 64 bit A8X cpu that comes with an M8 motion coprocessor provides up to 40% improvement according to Apple. Security is from the fingerprint identity sensor built into the Home button, Apple call this Touch ID. The front camera is 1.2MP and the rear iSight 8MP, the wifi is 802.11 ac which theoretically give up to 866 Mbps. The device comes in three colours and 16, 64 or 128GB storage and up to 10 hour battery life.
