iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3 and iMac 5K Retina Display Announced

By   /   Oct 17, 2014

Just recently we saw the release of Apple’s next iPhone, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus and if that wasn’t enough Apple hardware for you this year, the company has now announced the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 along with a new iMac.

There is no news yet regarding a new Macbook, but Apple’s new 27” iMac is now available with a 5K Retina Display.

5K is a big step forward by Apple, considering 4K is still finding its way on to HDTV’s and PC monitors. According to the company, the new display has 14.7 million pixels, which is seven times more compared to a full HD screen.

When it comes to the processor, iMac will have an Intel inside ranging from Intel i5 (3.5GHz) to i7 (4GHz). It will also feature a 1TB fusion drive.

The newly announced iPad Air 2 is 18 percent thinner compared to its predecessor and stands at 6. 1mm. The device also comes with a new laminated screen to help reduce reflections up to 56 percent.

Back camera is an eight mega pixel iSight and Apple has updated the front Facetime HD camera with the improved face detection system.

Featuring A8X processor along with much faster 802.11ac MIMO WIFI, iPad Air 2 will set you back $500 for 16GB model, 64GB for $600 and $700 will be charged for 120GB models. Pre-orders are now available and iPad Air 2 will launch next week.

Lastly, we have the iPad mini 3; it is pretty much the same as iPad mini 2, but one of the few new additions includes a Touch ID Sensor. The new device is also getting 802.11ac MIMO WIFI.

iPad mini 3 will retail for $400 if you want the 16GB model while 64GB and 120GB models cost $500 and $600 respectively. iPad mini 3 will also be released next week.
