The design of new generation Apple iPad Air 2 does not change. This is probably one of the most conservative manufacturers in the industry. Seriously work on the appearance of the next hit, designers retain patterns for the next generation, and then once for two. If you look at the history of iPad, then the second, third and fourth generation looked almost the same, and external differences confined to the different thickness of the shell and the new connector. A small revolution in the tablet market made thin and lightweight iPad Air. Releasing a tablet with even more slim (6.1 mm vs. 7.5 mm in the previous generation) Apple has again gone on record. Reminder: this is not about the phone (for which, however, 6.1 mm – also a very personal), and an almost ten-tablet!
Colors as before – silver or dark gray. However, there is a surprise. After the iPhone came in a golden, many users want to receive, and the tablet of the same color. Apple met the expectations of the public, and added to the standard set golden option.
Another difference was the new generation of tablet Home button with the refinement of fingerprint scanner, which looks exactly the same as the iPhone. The front panel has the camera FaceTime, takes the place of the exact center.
The iPad Air 2 is almost looks as iPad Air first generation, but no doubt that it looks beautiful. And similar thing is expected from the next generation iPad Air 3 to be released in 2015.
