Hello everyone, did you miss me? Hehehe.
Today, I felt like I wanted to share my experience with the iPad Air so far, and kind of give you readers an idea of what to expect if you purchase this wonderful tablet from the brilliant people at Apple. The iPad Air is one of the most sophisticated pieces of technology I have ever used, and I absolutely marvel at its screen and build quality every time I turn it on or use it.
The start-up time on this iPad Air is absolutely amazing. It literally takes seconds to fully turn on and be functional from a cold boot. When I carry it with me, I barely even notice I have it because it is just so light. I do have a few accessories for it, and a very nice iPad Air case I found online, but the little bit of weight it adds makes it worth protecting my investment. If I were to break this thing, I would be devastated. I didn’t get the AppleCare+, so I must be really careful when handling it.
I use a lot of apps, including the Google Maps app and even a little bit of Flappy Bird (I hate that game). I’ve even used Facetime to talk to my family back home who don’t even have iPads, they have iPhones, but the video calls still work perfectly and look great.
Web browsing on the iPad Air is also very awesome, and it makes browsing on my iPhone 5c seem so much more…. microscopic, for lack of a better word! Ha!
Overall, I am extremely impressed with this tablet, and I will use this for years to come. I’m sure that when a new iPad is released, perhaps they’ll make it bigger and call it the iPad Pro, I may be enticed to get another one, but hopefully I can fight the urge. I do hear that the resaleability of the iPad is quite good, so I may only have to pay a small difference to upgrade to the “latest and greatest.”
If you’re on the fence about getting an iPad Air, I say do it. iOS 7 is a joy to use (I’ve heard iOS 6 and below didn’t look nearly as good), the WiFi is fast, the processor is fast, the retina display is gorgeous, and it’s so thin and light, it almost takes up less mass than a BOOK. And reading books is great, too. I can go on and on, but to conclude: I approve of this iPad Air!
