    Apple iPad Air (iPad 5) officially announced, most tech specs and rumours confirmed

    Apple recently announced the latest version of their Apple iPad tablet. Not very keen on numbering this 5th generation tablet either, Apple have called it the iPad Air mainly because it is much thinner an lighter than previous versions. While it has the same 9.7-inch Retina Display, the iPad Air has slimmer bezels and a thinner overall look, confirming earlier rumours and leaks that it would look more like the iPad Mini. While it doesn't have any Touch ID fingerprint scanner it does pack in the new 64-bit Apple A7 processor and chipset with M7 coprocessor making it as powerful as the Apple iPhone 5S. Other tech specs and features for the Apple iPad Air include the following:

    • 64-bit A7 chip with M7 motion coprocessor

    Rumour: How Apple may make the iPad 5 Thinner and Lighter

    Recent rumours and leaks have shown that Apple's next iPad 5 may be going for a thinner and lighter look and feel. This may have been confirmed with last week's news about the narrower front panel bezel but it didn't really explain how Apple would make the iPad 5 thinner and lighter than the already quite thin and light Apple iPad 4. One rumour circling about today is that they will be using screens that use smaller LEDS.
