    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".

    Ok but half the things you said are non-issues or haven't happened in my experience and the rest are... well let's just say I really don't feel the magic of Android tablets.

    iPad Air 4 will be the one too get, not the iPad Air 3.

    Also get the iPad Pro 2 instead of the iPad Pro.

    Um, bad example as both Amazon (world's largest online retailer) and Samsung (one of the top electronics mfg in the world) are not amateur companies. But you did good up until that point. :p

    The Air 2060 will be the ultimate iPad. In the year 2060, it will be injected into your cerebral cortex, giving you the ultimate virtual tablet experience. It will read your thoughts in real time, and be your constant companion. Prices will start at $499. :D

    Amazon isn't a computer company.

    Samsung is a company thats makes everything with no focus on one thing.

    They both are amateur compared to Apple in both valuation and focus. Apple literally only makes computers and mobile devices.

    My only guess as to why Apple hasn't been trying to increase resolution and screen quality is that Apple has grown complacent. They think they can just do incremental upgrades to processing speed while making their devices smaller.

    IMHO I think this is the one to get. The screen flawless on my air 2 and so vivid as well as almost no glare! The black level is amazing too. Not to mention how fast this thing is and compared to the iPad 4, it is so light! I'm still in amazement as I use this. :)

    I'd say that was bigger than this. It took a slow hot tablet and made it useful again. The 2 just improved on an already great product.

    How's your #distortiongate?

    You must be one of the lucky few because theres a 7 page post by others that are having distortion problems when holding the screen with 1 hand. And by the way, just because it happens to all of the new iPads doesn't mean Apple meant it to be that way.

    Just look at the xbox360. The original model had overheating problems that cost Microsoft around $800 million to fix and change. This could turn into that very same problem where screens become damaged overtime from distortion.

    I'm pretty sure your not supposed to press your finger to an LCD screen causing ripples and just hold it there for long periods of time. That seems like the kind of thing that could damage it... Just saying

    I guess I'm lucky to only have the vibration issue. Everything else on my air 2 is perfect. No matter how I hold the screen there is no distortion and color is perfect.

    7/10, would not read again. But 7 pts isn't bad for a troll thread; it managed to elicit several responses (including my own, lol).

    Still, rife with inaccuracies, exaggerations, and half-truths. So subtract 3. Overall, reasonably well-played.

    2015 iPad Air will be the one to get

    What are you talking about ? My screen has no ripples and is perfect. Normal use you can't touch the led to distort it so stop hanging on that .

    Yes the cup MIGHT be able to handle it but what happens when you put in the same battery in ....lost of battery life. Seriously we don't need super high def screens on tablets and an almost 2k screen on the current screen is great

    Guess what iPad Air 3 will have a 16gb base model so I guess your not buying that either. I love my iPad Air 2 and will be holding onto it for a few years

    Aww, poor baby didn't get his new iPad. There, there, child. Maybe Santa will bring you one.

    Beats audio will just be a fancier equalizer if it's the same thing as on HTC phones and hp laptops. As far and quad hd screens the iPad basically has one already but a bit below. A quad hd display would mean it would go to 16:9 no ?

    Doesn't sound like he wants the 2014 model. He does have some valid points. At best buy mobile store getting my iPhone 6 today, They had the air 2 on display and the sound vibe was very noticeable and it had the screen distortion issue. It didn't take much pressure at all on it to cause the lcd to distort. I could deal with both those issues and probably will get an air 2 once they resolve the iOS 8 issues. Would rather keep my iPad 4 with 7.1.2. It seems faster to me with safari.

    I do put have the distortion issue at all. 0% under normal use. I can do it on my Samsung tablet with enough pressure and yes with my iPad Air 2 but normal use I am not doing it.

    This is like when someone said their 6+ bent by lightly bumping into someone.

    The Air 2 does not ripple from normal use or its own weight.
