The fifth generation iPad comes as you expected. It is given it a fresh new name - iPad Air. The iPad Air weighs in at just 1lb (or 453g) and 7.5mm thick - a significant step up from its predecessor, in a new A7 chip and camera upgrades, the decrease in thickness and weight in the new iPad Air is very welcome.
Besides, its cameras are improved- bringing a HD Facetime camera (is the front one) and a 5MP, 1080p rear camera. Then let us compare iPad Air and iPad 4:
Apple iPad Air vs Apple iPad 4: Camera
Like the iPad 4 before it, the iPad Air incorporates a range of image capturing cleverness.
The core 5 Megapixel, five-element lens is essentially the same technology. It has the same f/2.4 wide-angle aperture and the same Backside Illumination Sensor (BIS). This captures more light to give you better results when snapping shots in dim lighting conditions.
Other options include autofocus and tap to focus, tap to control the exposure, face detection, HDR and a Hybrid IR filter. The filter helps reduce the effects of infrared light, which can adversely affect image clarity.
As far as video is concerned, the rear camera can capture 1080p video, while the BIS-enhanced 1.2MP front camera can record 720p footage.
Apple iPad Air vs Apple iPad 4 - Connectivity
Like the iPad 4 before it, the iPad Air is a go-anywhere device that is available in Wi-Fi only and Wi-Fi + Cellular models.
The latter embraces 3G/HSDPA, CDMA and LTE connectivity. Both iPads also include Bluetooth 4.0 and 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, although the new Air benefits from added MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output) technology to boost connectivity speeds.
