Apple announces “iPad Air” | #ipadAir #CollegeTechnology

Apple just announced iPad Air, the fifth in its line of (nearly) 10-inch tablets. Last year, Apple’s big-boy got a perfunctory upgrade, but this year the iPad adds a new super skinny design with batchofsignificantimprovementsthat’ll carry the iPad through the next year. Here’s what you need to know.

Design

The rumors about an iPad redesign were true, but it’s even slicker than we thought. iPad Air features the first significant update to the tablet’s hardware since the iPad 3, which added a retina display and an increase in heft due to a hulking battery.

The new iPad is 44-percent thinner than its predecessor, withaflat-backed design resembling the iPad Mini. It basically just looks like a big iPad Mini. Very handsome.
