9 Takeaways From Apple's Latest Product Launch


iPad Air

Unveiling its fifth-generation iPad, branded the "iPad Air", Apple has taken the best specs in the newly released iPhone 5S and applied it to its newest tablet. Like the 5S, the iPad Air is loaded with Apple's newest 64-bit A7 chip and has nearly 2 times the computing and graphics power as the previous generation of iPads. Additionally, the tablet has two antennas, twice the wireless performance and dual-microphones for improved audio functions. With a 9.7-inch retina display, the tablet weighs in at only 1 pound, making it the lightest full-sized tablet on the market. The iPad Air will be available online and in retail stores beginning Nov. 1.
