The 128GB iPad Air from Apple features an even thinner design than its predecessor. Dropping almost a quarter of the volume of the previous generation iPad, the iPad Air is just 7.5mm thin and weighs just 1 pound (1.05 pounds with cellular). Overall, the iPad Air is 28% lighter, 20% thinner and 24% less volume than the previous iPad. The iPad Air may be thinner and lighter, but it's still durable and solid. That's because it still has an aluminum unibody design.

Apple introduces the 64-bit architecture to the iPad Air, which allows for more robust and powerful apps. Utilizing the A7 chip, the iPad Air runs apps faster and more efficiently than its predecessor. In fact, the A7 chip runs twice as fast as the A6X chip of the previous generation iPad. Also, the A7 chip supports OpenGL ES version 3.0 so the iPad Air can enable detailed graphics and visual effects once only possible on desktop computers and game consoles.

The A7 chip is accompanied by the M7 coprocessor, which measures the motion of the iPad Air. By pulling data from the accelerometer, gyroscope and compass, it lightens the load of the A7 chip. This frees up the A7 chip to focus on processing multiple tasks and maintaining fast performance. Even though the iPad Air is 20 percent thinner and more powerful, it still manages to maintain its 10-hour battery life. That's because the A7 chip isn't just more powerful, it's also more efficient.

The iPad Air also gives twice the Wi-Fi performance, thanks to dual antennas with MIMO (multiple-input multiple-output) technology. With dual-band 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, the iPad Air can reach download speeds of up to 300 Mbps, which is double the data rate of the previous-generation iPad.

The 9.7" Retina Display makes its return on the iPad Air, maintaining its enormous 2048 x 1536 native resolution. At 264 pixels per inch, the Retina Display can show up to 3.1 million colors at a time. The Retina Display is also a capacitive touchscreen so you'll be able to utilize all the multi-touch gestures of iOS 7.

The iPad Air comes with iOS 7. Apple refined the typography, redrew every icon around a new grid system, and added a precise color palette for a minimalist design. iOS 7 also introduces features, such as the Control Center. The Control Center can be accessed by swiping up from the bottom of the screen and grants you access to the most common setting options, such as Airplane mode, Wi-Fi, Airplay and even a flashlight. iOS 7 also introduces iTunes Radio (only available in the United States), a music streaming service from Apple. You can build your own stations and listen to your favorite songs. You can also view the history of everything you've heard and added to your Wish List and then download them off iTunes.

With iCloud, you can sync your iPad Air to your other iOS devices and Mac computers. Push photos, download apps and continue from where you left off in iBooks with iCloud. iCloud also offers cloud storage so you can back up your contacts, photos and important documents to Apple's cloud servers. You can restore your iPad Air to a previous state using iCloud.

Thinner & Lighter
The iPad Air lives up to its name. It's thinner at 7.5mm and weighs just 1 pound (1.05 pounds for the cellular version). Apple shaved almost a quarter of the volume of the previous-generation iPad. While it is lightweight, the iPad Air is still durable, thanks to its aluminum unibody construction
Retina Display
The Retina Display provides 4 times more pixels and 44% greater color saturation than the iPad 2. Within the 9.7" LED-backlit touchscreen, the 2048 x 1536 native resolution render text and images at 264 pixels per inch and a total of over 3.1 million pixels. The display also features a fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating for increased resolution during use. The width of the iPad Air has been reduced, thanks to smaller side bezels, allowing you to view more of the screen
Dual-Core A7 Chip
Thanks to the A7 chip, apps run faster on the iPad Air. Games are more responsive and everything you do with the iPad Air feels quicker. It's up to twice as quick as the previous-generation iPad. It also supports OpenGL ES version 3.0, enabling detailed graphics and visual effects once only possible on desktop computers and game consoles. And the A7 chip features 64-bit architecture, opening the door for even more robust and powerful apps
M7 Coprocessor
iPad Air was designed to be on the move. That's why the M7 coprocessor measures motion from your iPad Air by pulling data from the accelerometer, gyroscope, and compass. This allows your apps to give you a better experience based on the movement of your iPad Air. It's a task that would normally fall to the A7 chip. But M7 is more efficient at it, which saves on power and opens up the A7 chip to focus on other tasks
Battery Life
iPad Air may be faster and more powerful, but it's not more power hungry. Even though it's 20 percent thinner and up to twice as fast as the previous-generation iPad, it still gives you the same 10-hour battery life. That's because the A7 chip isn't just more powerful, but utilizes low voltage to be more efficient
802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi
With twice the Wi-Fi performance, thanks to two antennas and MIMO (multiple-input multiple-output) technology, the iPad Air can reach download speeds of up to 300 Mbps. With dual-band (2.4GHz and 5GHz) 802.11n Wi-Fi and MIMO, that's double the data rate of the previous-generation iPad. So now when you want to download a movie, share photos or documents with AirDrop, or just browse the web, your connection is even faster than before
AT&T Mobile Broadband
With LTE mobile broadband support, you can use your iPad Air almost anywhere you go, making use of AT&T's high speed cellular network. The iPad Air now supports even more LTE bands for greater flexibility. In addition to support for a fast mobile network, the iPad Air can also be used as a personal hotspot for sharing the data connection with your computer. With carrier support, up to 5 devices can be tethered to the iPad Air via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. Please note that data plans are sold separately
FaceTime HD Camera
Sometimes it's nice to put a face to the conversation. And with FaceTime video calls on iPad Air, your conversations look better than before. Make a video call over Wi-Fi or cellular and see (or show) every expression on the beautiful display. Now the FaceTime HD camera features a next-generation backside illumination sensor with larger pixels, which brightens up all your FaceTime chats, selfies, and group Photo Booth shots, even in low-light situations
5-Megapixel iSight Camera
The 5-megapixel iSight camera on iPad Air was designed to help you capture all of life's moments at a moment's notice. Use the Retina display as an easy viewfinder to frame the perfect shot. Quickly swipe between capturing stills or 1080p Full HD video. Every time you shoot, the image signal processor in the A7 chip works with the camera to make a ton of adjustments and deliver a great picture or video automatically
iOS 7
Apple has refined the typography, redrawn every icon around a new grid system, and added a precise color palette for a minimalist design with iOS 7. iOS 7 improves and adds features to the iPad Air. The Control Center is where you have access to the most common setting options like Airplane Mode, volume, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Camera, AirPlay and more. iOS 7 also introduces AirDrop, where you can share photos, videos, and contacts from any app with a Share button. iOS 7 also introduces iTunes Radio (only available in the US), which lets you build your own stations and listen to your favorite songs. You can also view the history of everything you've heard and added to your Wish List and then download them off iTunes
iCloud
iCloud functions as a wireless service for you to keep all of your devices in sync and maintain the content throughout them
Siri
Siri lets you use your voice to send messages, schedule meetings, check the latest scores, and more. Ask Siri to do things just by talking. Siri understands what you say, knows what you mean and even talks back
AirPlay
AirPlay functions off of the wireless capabilities of the iPad Air and allows you to seamlessly watch or listen to your content on your HDTV. When connected to the same wireless network, content can be controlled from the iPad Air and ported through or watched on auxiliary devices

        Comments about 128GB iPad Air (AT&T, Space Gray):

        This is my second iPad. The first one had 64 GB but with all my photography I needed more. After set up I only have 114 GB available now. Wish I'd know BH had a nice selection of covers. I shopped locally for one, returning the first one for one with magnetic closure and wake-sleep feature. Now I see that B&H has these.

        Best Uses

          Comments about 128GB iPad Air (AT&T, Space Gray):

          I upgraded from an iPad3 w/32GB of memory running iOS7. The improvement in performance as well as size/weight is easily noticeable. My only and big complaint is that Safari seems to continually reload tabs every time I switch from tab to tab. Extremely frustrating. At times, this 'glitch' takes away from the experience and makes me wish I had stayed with my iPad3. If it wasn't for that issue, I'd give this 6 stars because I consider it that good otherwise.

          I'm left shaking my head.

              Yesterday I went to the local AT&T store to get my iPad cellular internet connectivity. When I'm out and about now I'll easily be able to use my iPad to locate information, including directions to wherever I'm going!

              In addition l enjoy using it to keep up with the broadcasts of my favorite TV series when I miss them the first time around. It's much easier to see these shows on a screen larger than the iPad Mini.

              I purchased the iPad Air to replace my 3rd generation model. The new iPad Air is thinner and very noticeably lighter. The touch screen also seems more sensitive to touch than earlier models. Overall, I'm very satisfied!

                Love apple as I only own their computers, phones, iPad, etc. Just another product well done by Apple.

                Much faster than my wife's iPad 2 that it replaced, as well as included the AT&T LTE option this time, that I did not have on the iPad 2.

                She will be very happy when she receives it.

                      The days may be over when Apple would amaze us with something new and totally unexpected, but the IPad Air really is a big step forward. A fast processor, 64 bit technology, and a super high resolution screen in a very light easy to carry package make this a necessary upgrade if you want to use your iPad like a computer. Get as much memory as you can if you store a lot of pictures and music on the device

                          Much lighter than the previous model. Screen resolution with the Retina makes a noticeable difference. Much clearer outlines of characters for reading.
