After having time to play with Apple’s newest tablet, I have to say it isn’t bad. It fixes most of my major complaints with the iPad 4. It’s thinner on the bezels and lighter. I found my iPad 4 was a bit too big for my liking, and not so portable. The iPad Mini also packs an A7 processor and a M7 coprocessor, the same ones found in the iPhone 5s. The camera is also improved, however, there is no 120FPS video recording like the iPhone 5s.
My one major complaint with the iPad Air is that there is no finger print sensor. And, this is really a personal thing. It just feels so slow and inconvenient to manually slide and enter a passcode, when i’m used to being able to unlock via fingerprint.
