Apple has released its new breed of iPads, including the likes of iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3, both of which are quite popular. There is a huge buzz circling around them in the market, thanks to the legacy and image of Apple in the market.apple-ipad-air-2

Let us talk about iPad Air 2 first. It is Apple’s new breed and one of the most anticipated gadgets of the year. It is definitely faster than the predecessor, which was already very powerful compared to its rivals. Apple iPad Air 2 is a sleek and beautiful designed iPad which is thinner than its predecessor. All the features of the gadget are ranked well above the existing tablets in the market.


iPad Mini 3 on the other hand includes a Touch ID and Apple Pay along with a fingerprint scanner. All these innovations take this tablet to a greater height in terms of excellence. Shopping and other payment scenarios have become easier with the innovations embedded in the new Apple iPad Mini 3.

After getting to know the features of both the tablets, you must be wondering that they are wonderful gadgets. However, when it comes to the price segment, they are on the pricey side. Apple iPad Air 2 starts with the range of $499 and iPad Mini 3 comes with a price tag of $399. The entry-level models of both the tablets carry a storage space of 16GB only. For upgrading your model to 64GB, you need to spend another $100.

Both the tablets are considered to be at the high-end. So, is it worth spending that amount for their purchase? For iPad Air 2, the answer is certainly yes. However, it depends on the user’s experience and his preference.


If you do not like to use a PC for all the work that you are assigned to, iPad Air 2 is definitely a steal deal. It is more powerful than an ordinary PC, but in case, you like to surf movies and other things on the web, iPad Air 2 is not available to impress you. The predecessor of iPad Air is more useful for the above mentioned services.

When it comes to iPad Mini 3, the levels of excellence go down further to a great extent. It is actually not an upgraded version with Apple’s latest processor. With all these considerations, it is easy to confer that iPad Mini 3 and iPad Air 2 are essentially pretty in looks and great in performance but they are not must have’s in the market.
