SIMPLY PICKING IT UP MAKES YOU APPRECIATE ITS BRILLIANT DESIGN
reason the iPad Air 2 is such a great tablet is because it’s an iPad. That’s not to say Apple has a divine hold on what a good device like this should be, but the combination of excellent apps and a very user-friendly interface in Ios 8 means that it still has the edge over its rivals.
Critics will quickly flash out all the usual arguments, such as, ‘Oh, but it can’t fully run all my PC software and it just can’t multitask properly’, but the simple fact is that it doesn’t need to. The iPad Air is a sling-in-your-bag, grab-for-entertainment device that just begs to be played with.
Whether you’re using it for gaming, reading, proof-reading a document or just want to sit and sigh wistfully at your recent holiday snaps, the iPad is adept at nearly every task, and if you fancy a little treat, it’s well worth the modest hit your wallet will take to secure one.

Not the greatest battery life T3 SAYS While not worth the upgrade if you bought 2013’s model, the iPad Air 2 is a brilliant tablet that’s a pleasure to use
