Apple released its fifth-generation iPad in San Francisco at the company’s annual unveiling event. This model, which is now called the iPad Air, is “thinner, lighter, and more powerful than ever before,” Apple’s Phil Schiller said.
Graphics-wise, that means that this iPad Air is 72 times faster than the original iPad in GPU performance. In terms of Wi-Fi, there’s MIMO wireless technology onboard, but the Air is using 802.11n standard, not the more current ‘ac’ Wi-Fi designation.
