Just got my iPad air 2! Not only has the performance of the web browser exceeded my expectations I wanted to see if it can play one game all iPads failed to play smoothly: asphalt 8: airborne And wow, it plays the game so smoothly. There are a few frame hiccups here and there but overall the game rocks and this iPad air 2 is the first iPad to be able to play this game at a smooth frame rate without the frame drop issues like on iPad air 1st generation! List out the other games this air 2 can play smoothly - the air2 is a beast!!
