Announced on October 22nd this year, the iPad Air updated Apple's larger tablet range with the new A7 64-bit processor, iOS7, and a redesign of the popular tablet. Would Apple's new tablet retain their lead in the tablet space against a rush of Android tablets from manufacturers around the world? In a word, yes.
The iPad Air is a worthy name for Cupertino's new tablet, thanks to the thinner design and comparable battery life to it's desktop compatriot, the MacBook Air. The iPad Air arguably serves the same purpose, as a lightweight general purpose computing device which is both portable and powerful.
Yes there are countless Android tablets available, with the associated focus on high specifications and the voluminous Google Play store, but the iPad Air is more than an iteration on Apple's successful product line. It feels like the synthesis of everything that has come before, allowing Apple to create a tablet that can fit into your life without you having to compromise any of your expectations. And when you want to stretch your wings, the iPad Air is ready to take flight.
Opening the box you'll find the iPad Air sitting on the top of the tray, ready to go online and get started. Underneath you'll find Apple's Lightning to USB cable, and a 12W USB Power Adapter. While the iPad Air can charge from a computer (and I suspect that the majority of people will be using iTunes to load music and video to the tablet as quickly as possible), the iPad Air can be 100% standalone, with no need to touch another piece of home computing hardware, which makes the AC charger more than an afterthought
