Apple released the iPad Air on October 22, 2013. As with the 4th Generation iPad Retina, the iPad Air uses a Lightning port and has a 2048x1536 (264 ppi) display. The external similarities end there. The iPad Air is lighter by nearly half a pound and all case dimensions have shrunk a bit when compared to the previous iPad generation. Case colors are either a white front with a silver back or a black front with a gunmetal gray back.
The iPad Air Wi-Fi Only is offered in 16, 32, 64, or 128 GB capacities, all with a dual core 64-bit 1.4 GHz Apple A7 processor and an M7 motion coprocessor.
