Apple iPad Air 2 specs: under the hood of the thinnest iPad yet

Of Apple’s two new tablets debuting at today’s launch event, the iPad Air 2 is easily the more capable of the pair. With a new SoC at its core, the Air 2 represents the next generation of Apple’s iOS hardware. But there’s so much more than just a speedy processor and GPU that make this tablet the attractive slate it is – especially that extremely thin 6.1mm-thick build. Let’s take a look at the full picture of components that make up Apple’s latest tablet flagship:
