Engadget Review

The iPad Air 2 is Apple's most powerful tablet yet, and is incredibly thin and light. It's a solid upgrade over last year's Air, and should definitely be one of your top tablet considerations.

Pros
  • Beautiful, thin aluminum design
  • Incredibly powerful A8X chip
  • Touch ID included
  • Upgraded camera
Cons
  • Battery life could be better
  • Some will miss the mute switch
