This might just be the most amazing thing about the iPad Air 2

The iPad Air 2 is officially available in stores, so it’s not really surprising to see the guys over at iFixit publish their official iPad Air 2 teardown. The slimmer-than-ever iPad Air 2 can be easily torn apart if you’ve got the right tools, but it’s not easy to repair, receiving a 2 out of 10 repaiarability score from the teardown experts. However, iFixit did manage to shed more light on the internal components of the iPad Air 2, many of which have been detailed in previous leaks and reports.

In the process, however, the publication made some interesting discoveries. More →

iPad Air 2 16GB Vs. 64GB

Why Apple needs to stop releasing 16GB iPads

Why Apple needs to stop releasing 16GB iPads

Earlier this month, we knocked Apple for releasing a new version of the Retina iPad mini that was literally the exact same as last year’s model except for the addition Touch ID and the option to buy it in gold. Now famed Apple blogger John Gruber, in his otherwise laudatory review for the new iPad Air 2, singles out another point of criticism about the company’s newest tablets: Namely, he doesn’t think there’s any reason for Apple to release larger iPads with only 16GB of storage anymore.

Apple now makes 56 different iPads – here’s how to choose the right one for you

Apple last week unveiled two new iPad models, the iPad Air 2 and the iPad mini 3 — though only the iPad Air 2 received a significant upgrade — making the new devices available for purchase almost immediately. Many older models are still officially available on Apple’s site and in stores, including the original iPad mini that sells for just $249.

As Forbes points out, from $249 to $829 there are 56 different iPad configurations to choose from, with users having to decide on various factors including size (two options), memory (four choices, but not available across the board), colors (up to three versions), wireless connectivity (two options), and whether they need a fingerprint scanner in their iPad or not.
