Apple has recently lifted the lid on the new iPad Air 2, and according to the Cupertino firm, its new tablet is 18% thinner than its predecessor.
Speaking about the new iPad’s weight and thickness, Apple says, “The ﬁrst thing you’ll notice is how incredibly thin and light it is. iPad Air 2 is an impossibly thin 6.1 millimeters, making it our thinnest iPad ever. And it weighs less than a pound. So it’s even easier to hold in one hand and take with you anywhere.”
The iPad Air 2 is significantly thinner than the iPad Air, but does this mean that it can easily be bent just like the the iPhone 6 Plus. Apple claims that its new tablet is stronger.
Apple says, “When it was introduced four years ago, the original iPad set the standard for thinness and lightness. Since then, iPad has become even thinner and lighter. But thanks to its durable aluminum unibody, iPad Air 2 doesn’t sacriﬁce strength in the pursuit of thinness. From the moment you pick it up, you feel how sturdy and rigid it is.”
Of course, we won’t know for sure if this claim is accurate until the tablet is available in stores. We’re sure, however, that someone will perform a bend test on the device as soon as it gets out.
