The iPad range was up­dated in late 2013, with a lighter, thin­ner model known as the iPad Air, and a new mini with a Retina dis­play. The iPad mini with Retina dis­play’s 7.9-inch screen res­o­lu­tion matches the iPad Air’s. Both new iPads have an A7 chip, with 64-bit ar­chi­tec­ture, ad­vanced graph­ics and good cam­eras on the rear of the de­vice.

Pre­ci­sion-en­gi­neered to weigh just one pound, the iPad Air is 20% thin­ner and 28% lighter than the fourth­gen­er­a­tion iPad it re­placed. The bezel is nar­rower too, and it‘s snap­pier to use. The iPad 2 was dis­con­tin­ued in March 2014, and re­placed by the fourth-gen­er­a­tion iPad with Retina dis­play. Along with the iPad mini (with­out a Retina dis­play), these are the cheap­est op­tions.
