Apple unveiled two new tablets today in San Francisco — the iPad Air and the iPad Mini with Retina Display — the latest in the company’s arsenal to hold onto its dominance in the increasingly competitive arena.
Apple VP of Marketing Phil Schiller called the iPad Air “the lightest full-sized tablet in the world.” Weighing in at only 1 pound, the newest iPad shed nearly a third of its weight compared to the last generation of iPad.
But the iPad Air isn’t sacrificing any processing power with the reduced weight. You can think of it as trimming the fat and gaining some muscle, as the newest iPad includes a hardware upgrade in the form of an A7 Processor chip. For those keeping track, the A7 is also found in the iPhone 5s, unveiled barely a month ago. Unlike the recently released phone, however, it does not appear that the iPad Air will have a fingerprint sensor, known as TouchID.
