Apple is relaxing its iPad collection in expectations of claiming back the lost ground in the tablet market and reducing the prices of its Mac computers to heighten the pressure on the famous makers of PCs running Microsoft Windows.

Apple Refurbished The iPad Air:

Apple introduced the fifth generation of the iPad on 22 Oct. 2013 at an occasion in San Francisco, named the iPad Air. The new model sports a thinner design and a 64-bit processor, a character first introduced in the iPhone 5S. The iPad Air will be available on November 1 around the world starts at $499 or $629 with cellular data.

"It's so new in so many ways, it deserves a new name," Apple vice president of worldwide marketing Phil Schiller said on the stage. He also said,"This is probably our biggest leap forward in a full-size iPad."

The physical design is extremely lighter in weight and thinner. The previous iPad was 1.4 pounds but the iPad Air is just 1 pound. The iPad Air definitely earns its new surname. The thickness falls about 20% than the earlier iPad. The iPad Air is only 7.5 mm (0.30 inch) thick. Apple announced that, the iPad Air is the world's slimmest tablet. The bezel encircling the screen is thinner too, downsizing by 43% and nearer in percentage to the bezel on the iPad mini. Apple says that, the iPad Air is the lightest "full-size" tablet in the world.

A 64-bit A7 processor is inside the fifth generation iPad which is the same as the one in the iPhone 5S. The tablet is developed especially to run iOS 7, the latest version of Apple's mobile operating system. Apple says that, the performance of the iPad Air is double than that of the earlier versions of iPad. Comparing to the first iPad, the iPad Air has 8x the performance and graphically 72x better. The iPad Air also delivers the M7 motion co-processor that brings data from the device's accelerometer, gyroscope and compass.

The new iPad Air gives the same visual as the iPad mini with an aluminium rear plate curved lightly at the side and a gleaming metallic detail where the rear side meets the bezel. The thin bezel wither black or white, rims the glass-fronted 2048 x 1536 pixels resolution Ratina display. It arrives with the new 'space-gray' back with a black bezel and with a silver back and a white bezel. It's front facing camera can shoot in HD quality picture and the main camera is 5 MP which features same as the one found in older versions of iPad. The iPad Air contains two built in microphones for quality audio during making calls and recordings. It'll be available in 16 GB, 32 GB, 64 GB and 128 GB variations.

Apple says that, the iPad Air is twice as fast as the iPad 4 on Wi-Fi networks and it facilitates 801.11 n/g/b/a standard. The 32.4 watt-hour battery is rated at 10 hours. The iPad Air will go on sale globally on Friday, Nov. 1. It includes more supports for LTE networks. There's a new Smart Case as well as which holds the device in pouch.
