This is what the brand Apple made for. In terms of performance there is nothing to beat! The tablet is liquid smooth and you cannot find a minute lag while using the tablet. It is because apple managed to put their latest A8X 64 bit desktop class architecture processor on to this small machine. And the performance is incredible. The A8X is a triple core processor which is cloaked at 1.5 GHz.

There is a major improvement in Camera with an 8MP rear shooter camera on the back and a 1.2 MP front facing camera for the video calls. Rear camera can record videos in 1080p resolution at 120 frames per second while front camera can record videos in 720p at 30 frames per second.
Device is capable of handling 4G network along with other usual connectivity features which includes Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and Wi-Fi hotspot. The SIM Card in the Air 2 got even smaller which uses a Nano SIM or Apple SIM (US and UK models).
Apart from all these features there is a finger print sensor on the home button of the iPad Air 2. Which makes even more secure all your accounts. You can only make bank transactions after the approval of your fingerprint. Also while making purchases through online you have to scan your finger which is very good in terms of personal security.
