The original iPad was an iPhone gone IMAX and the first successful tablet the world had ever seen. The iPad 2 made it thinner, lighter, and faster. The iPad 3 went Retina and LTE but not comfortably so. The iPad 4 made Retina and LTE sing. And the iPad mini showed portability could be just as important as power. Now the Retina iPad mini is as high-density as they come, and the iPad Air has gone light as its namesake. Where does the future lie? For now, with Touch ID and the biggest iPad to date — the new iPad Pro.

The iPad Pro is the biggest and most powerful iPad Apple's ever made. At it's introduction, Tim Cook called the iPad Pro the clearest expression of Apple's vision for the future of computing, and it's easy to see why.
iPad Air 2 review
30 October 2014
The iPad Air 2 is Apple's sixth-generation tablet, and the sum total of all the company's insight, experience, and engineering to date. It's as narrow as last year's model, yet even thinner and lighter. Its display is as sharp as ever, but now laminated and even better looking. It's got a camera that, for the first time, takes photography seriously. It connects to even faster networks. And it's got a processor that's so advanced and so powerful, it rivals laptops of not so very long ago.
The iPad was forged on the belief that technology alone is not enough. That personal computers had to become even more personal. That holding them in your hands — looking into the vast expanse of apps and the web, and manipulating it all directly, immediately, with the touch of a finger — enabled and empowered something more.
iPhones have gotten bigger and more capable. MacBook Airs have gotten more efficient and more accessible. And even as Apple shows us iPads journeying to the tops of mountains and the bottom of the seas, as they've been used to create new art and new enterprise alike — some have wondered how much space truly remains for Apple's tablet to live and grow between phone and laptop.
Does the iPad Air 2 answer that question? Read on to find out!

Last year Apple updated the iPad Air 2 with the convenience of Touch ID, the clarity of a laminated display, and the power of the A8X chipset. The iPad mini 3 only scored the first of the three. This year the iPad mini 4 gets the rest of the way there. Almost. It sports an A8 instead of an A8X, but the display is every bit as stunning, and the radios faster than ever. Also, thanks to iOS 9, it can do full-on Split View multitasking.

iOS 9 is all about taking a moment to solidify and round-out everything that's come before, and starts us towards what's coming next. Absent the radical and the revolutionary, iOS 9 has to deliver on the promise not of more but of better. After the giant leaps, it has to stick the landing. So, does it?
