    Got one to try through work. I don't want to give it back! It's so light and fast. Love it! I would say that if you have the money and the love of Apple products, then it is worth the upgrade even if you have the air 1.

    I just made the same upgrade jump and it's been amazing so far.

    Just traded my iPad 2 for an Air 2 and have seen a HUGE improvement in performance and no freezing issues like I had been having on the old one after the iOS update. Also, no issues with screen distortion due to pressure from holding it, or poor sound quality. I read all these complaints before buying and after testing several in store and this one at home, I wonder what all the complaints are about.

    My only gripe, and it's a small one, is that the new Smart Cover for these Air models only has 3 creases in to to fold into the triangular shaped stand instead of the older model that had 4. As a result, when it sits in the lap, it is not as stable and wants to unfold.

    I just upgrade from an iPad Air to the Air 2 yesterday.

    Although I haven't had much time with it, I am enjoying the bump in speed and the additional smoothness.


    The Home doesn't have the click I am used to, it feels mushy, although it works fine. Anyone else have this or do I have a defective unit?

    Thanks

    I went from mini 2 to iPad air 2. Although still debating on trading for 64 GB model since 16GB model out of box has 11GB available.

    I upgraded from a Mini 2 16 GB as well, and I went with a 64 GB Air 2 this time. I would trade it for a 64 GB if you can, it is much better than a 16 GB

    Go 64 if you can. IMO Apple should have went with a minimum of 32gb.

    I just upgraded to an iPad Air 2 from an original iPad Mini. The speed is the first thing I noticed. This thing is lighting fast.

    Thanks for all the responses so far. I'm still doing my RESEARCH and this is very helpful. I'm not quite sure if I want to get the iPad Mini or the Air2. I will be visiting my local Verizon soon to take a good look at both devices and try to make a decision....SMILE

    My wife likes the smaller form factor and is going to get a mini 3, while I like the bigger screen and went with the Air2.

    I upgraded from a Mini 2, and I'm glad I did. Bigger screen is better on an iPad in my opinion

    Got me one of these babies today in the 64GB version.

    - Feels like holding my iPad mini
    - Oh how I missed having a loud speaker. I can hear things now.
    - Opening and closing apps is significantly more noticeable as far as speed
    - Still going to need to get used to Touch ID on such a large device


    Just first impressions. I'm sure as the days go by I'm going to find things I like even more about it compared to my iPad mini

    Enjoy. It seems so much faster to me. And the laminated display really makes the text appear closer to the glass. I got mine launch week and have been loving it ever since.

    Ahh, yes. I forgot to mention that also. There is a significant difference just looking at the springboard and all the icons laid out. I put my Mini next to it and looked at them eye-level and the difference was astounding.

    I upgraded to the Air because of how light it was and again with the Air 2.

    What a difference, how much easier it is to handle. I'm using it now.
