Five weeks after Apple revealed its new and bigger iPhone models, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, the famous company came with another surprise. This Thursday, the tech giant has launched its latest tablet version and also upgrades to its iMac Desktop computer. We are talking about the iPad Air 2, which is 6.1 millimeters thin, approximately 17% thinner than the previous release.
Unfortunately for Apple, the popular company is not happy with the tablet sales this year, so Apple surely hopes that with this new upgrade they will manage to reverse the trend. Coincidence or not, the famous company has unveiled its new products just in time for the holiday season.
When it comes to the iPad Air 2, we can say that this is a really skinny new tablet. The smartphone maker made this new product only 6.1 millimeter thick, thinner than the iPhone 6 by almost 1mm. The device runs on 64-bit chip and A8X, claiming that it has 40 percent faster CPU performance. iPad Air 2 also has an 8-megapixel camera with slow-motion imaging and time-lapse. Apple’s Phil Schiller declared at the presentation of the new product that it is “the world’s thinnest tablet.” The upgrade of the tablet didn’t stopped here and Apple also added the Touch ID fingerprint reader to the new product. Besides iPad Air 2, another iPad mini has been launched, the iPad mini 3.
After Apple rolled out the new iOS 8 operating system, many people have started to complain. They said that the update has made certain features nonfunctional, including here the Touch ID, and ruined cellular reception. The tech company has brought a fix to these problems and released iOS 8.1, which includes iCloud Photo Library, an app that will give you the opportunity to store all the images from your devices. iOS 8.1 also brings back Camera Roll, which was removed from iOS 8.
Another surprise at this latest Apple event was the release of the newest version of the 27-inch iMac with a 5k retina display. It costs 2.500 dollars, which means that Apple has increased the price, compared to the 27-inch iMac, which costs 1,800 dollars.
