As for the iPad Air 2, the combination of lots more power compared to the original iPad Air, a far better screen, improved design and an upgraded OS made it the only real option for anyone who wants to buy a serious tablet - and that's before getting into the fact the tablet app ecosystem is so much stronger than on Android.
And the iPad Air 2 is even better now that iOS 8 is capable of scaling apps so seamlessly - the days of low-res iPhone apps are gone. It's another hammer blow to the Google tablet market, although you can still be fully confident that's going to catch up in quality soon.
Like we said though, Apple has now launched a new iPad 9.7-inch model that's an iPad Air 3 in all but name. Check out the new iPad deals too.
