Apple just released it’s newest hardware refresh of the iPad. The new iPad Air 2 is thinner, includes Touch ID, has a better camera, and is faster than the predecessor, the iPad Air. But do you need to buy it?
If you currently have an iPad Air, there is nothing in the iPad Air 2 that will make a difference in the ability to use the iPad in classes at FCS. The iPad Air is still a great tablet. Its fast, has a great screen, and can run any apps that could be used in class.
However, if you have an iPad 2 and you would like to update your tablet, it may be a good upgrade to consider. However, if you would like to save $100, Apple is selling the iPad Air for $399 compared to the iPad Air 2 for $499.
If you are looking to upgrade an iPad Mini, don’t. The iPad Mini 3 has exactly the same specs as the Retina Mini. The only addition the the Mini 3, is Touch ID.
