Lets face it, the iPad Air 2 release is junk. The screen shows ripples when holding it one handed. How did Apple not discover this in quality testing before production is anyones guess. The battery life is worse and the charger is 10w instead of 12w so it doesn't have improved charging times vs the Air. The resolution has not been improved, meanwhile Amazon and Samsung both have tablets out with better resolution and screen quality (Amazon has 100% RGB color accuracy, Samsung has OLED which is better contrast/more vivid). Tell me Apple, how with your available cash flow larger than most countries are you able to be outplayed on resolution and screen quality by two amateur companies? The base model is still 16gb. Seriously Apple, your putting 16gb base models when memory couldn't be cheaper? Literally, you can go to any store and buy a 16gb flash drive for less than $10, yet Apple treats it like it is more rare than unicorn tears. As it stands right now, the only benefit to buying the iPad Air 2 is the 2gb of ram. The iPad Air was already more than capable and we all know that most app developers build apps to be able to run on the majority of iPads. Next year Apple will release a higher resolution iPad based on 14nm architecture. The speed of the processor will easily support the screen resolution. *Say what you will. This update is just a minor one. I wish that weren't the case, but next year when they up the screen resolution and quality everyone here will be making posts "Should I upgrade to Air 3".
