The iPad sets the benchmark when it comes to 10 inch tablets, with four generations of Apple’s popular tablet bringing something new to the table (well, almost) each time.Some felt that the iPad was a bit unwieldy with its heavy frame and chunky bezel. But Apple was skeptical about changing these attributes as it believed this might affect the tablet’s usability. It is also believed that the company found it hard to fit all the components, especially the battery, in a more compact form factor.
However, it looks like the Cupertino giant had a change of heart and in its fifth avatar, the celebrated tablet now dons a brand new shell, which is much more sleeker than all the previous iterations. It also got a new name, iPad Air. The suffix was earlier being used with the Cupertino giant’s ultra compact MacBook notebooks, representing a sleeker form factor. iPad Air also comes with new internals, including the 64-bit A7 processor. So, is the iPad Air the revolutionary upgrade we’ve been waiting for?
