On tuesday 22nd october Apple inc. officially unwrapped its fifth generation Ipad tagged Ipad air revealing a device running on its latest mobile operating system and 20 percent thinner than its predecessor.
Yes we’re talking about Ipad air here. We’ll be sharing some of its features , specifications ,prices and how it compares with its predecessor the iPad 4
Here’s how it breaks down:
The battery life of any device is to me the most important thing to consider,and fortunately,just like in every other ipad version,both mini and full size,the ipad air promises a battery life of up to ten hours Wi-Fi, 9 hours cellular,this is the same as obtained in the ipad 4.
The Ipad air features the very latest of Ipad mobile OS,the iOS 7 which was released only about a month back.Although,this shouldn’t be a point of comparison as the 4th generation iPad was also launched with iOS 6 but is also up-gradable to iOS 7 through a software upgrade.
the iPad Air whose dimensions and weight are 240×169.5×7.5mm, and 478g respectively shaves almost 2 mm off the thickness of the iPad 4 while weighing 184g lighter to the Ipad 4
There isn’t much to say about the camera as both ipad air and ipad 4 presents same 5MP rear-facing and 1.2MP front-facing cameras, which are considerably good for video calling but not ideal for your main camera due to the difficulties in holding a tablet and taking pictures.
Other major comparison is as contained in the table presented below

Although almost all features of Ipad air seems to be the same with ipad 4, Apple’s iPad Air is packed with some welcome improvements, especially in terms of design, bringing a much smaller and thinner device for the same price
