Revealed: Here Is What’s Inside Apple’s iPad Air
Apple Inc.’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) recently unveiled iPad Air goes on sale Friday. The device became available in United States timezones just after midnight Pacific Daylight Time after hitting shelves around the world and selling out in Hong Kong, according to Apple Insider.
The website reported that Apple is offering personal pickup and says the devices can be shipped and delivered by Monday for online orders, which suggests ample supply. The new iPad has gotten positive reviews for its lightweight and fast performance. Primate Lab’s Geekbench test found that the iPad Air’s A7 processor gives it the ability to run twice as fast as the iPad 4, with a much improved multicore performance.
If you’re wondering what’s inside the new fifth-generation iPad, Apple Insider has a report on that, too. Citing a writeup from repair experts iFixit, Apple Insider points out that the new iPad Air has several parts in common with the iPad mini and the iPhone 5S. IFixit found so many similarities between the iPad Air and the first-generation iPad mini that the site said it “seems like Apple took an iPad Mini and transmogrified it to a regular iPad’s size.”
