Apple gives the iPad 5 a new name. It is the iPad Air.
The new iPad Air is what we believed would be just the iPad 5. Apple said that the new iPad Air the biggest step in development yet. Pricing will be the same as for the previous iPad. The new iPad Air will ship on November 1st. There will be no fingerprint sensor, but it so thin and light.
The Apple iPad Air is 7.5mm thin and weighs 1 pound. It runs on the A7 CPU like the iPhone 5S. It also supports MiMo for memory transfer and better cameras.
