Everything you need to know from Apple’s iPad and Mac October event | iMore
October 18, 2014
The biggest takeaway from today’s event is the announcement of the iPad Air 2. It shaves down the profile to 6.1 mm (for reference, the existing iPad Air is 7.5 mm thick). There’s a new 8 megapixel camera inside that’s similar to what we’re seeing in the iPhone 6 Plus and a dedicated A8X image signal processor to handle timelapse and slow-mo shots. The front-facing camera has had some great improvements, and lets in 81% more light thanks to a larger aperture. There’s also burst-mode selfies to shoot.
