    I had an Air and this is very much an upgrade ....2gb of ram is a big deal and anybody saying otherwise is wrong specially long term view . Once it becomes a norm or when app devs decide to make apps basically only functional on an iPad Air 2.


    Back to OP original post it's the same thing .....guess what then ....you can argue its been the same thing since the first iPad back in 2010.
    If it's the same thing for the user everything you just said doesn't matter.

    Most users have no clue what RAM is. All they know is that when they do what they do everyday the Air 1 is the same thing as the Air 2.

    I think now we are going in circles.

    It makes a difference for you. So go buy one.

    For others it is the same thing. They won't buy one.

    Some have the iPad 3 or 2 or even the original iPad even , and still they say the Air 2 aside from being thinner, is the same thing and they won't spend that much to do the same thing.

    I guess I will need 2gb of ram to read emails, read books on ibooks, take pics to the powerpoint slides in class, listen to my music, and text with my friends and family?

    give me a break!!!!! I don't even have a single game on it and the only apps I have are Facebook, quizlet, ibooks and iwork.

    now tell me.... how can i benefit from 2gb of ram?
    We normal people understand why the Air 2 for you is just the same thing.

    So then you should of bought the iPad 2 because it can do all that...
    Exactly. Now you're getting it.

    There are people still using their old XP computers. Ask them why. Why don't they get a new one. Faster, fancier, shinier, more ram, faster cpu.

    They'll say because their computer works just fine and does everything they want to do. When it dies they'll think about a new one.

    The "same" thing is the Ipad mini 3 and 2...... The air 2 is again vastly superior. You don't need to know what ram is to take advantage of the extra gb.

    Agreed. There is a big quantitative difference between the iPad Air and iPad Air 2. Whether talking about the thickness, weight, CPU, GPU, RAM, or camera, there are definite differences.
    Now if someone is talking about how and what they use their iPad for, it is also true that they may not see the differences or those differences may not be important to them.

    So as a statement of fact, saying "the iPad Air and iPad Air 2 are the same" is FALSE.
    As a matter of opinion, saying "based on what I use the iPad Air for, the iPad Air 2 would be the same for me" can be TRUE.

    Still is not the "same" no matter how you use it ....just isn't true . Might not be worth upgrading to but is Not the same thing ....

    THAT'S A LIE

    Look who's lying now

    The iPad Mini 2 is NOT THE SAME as the iPad Mini 3.

    IPad Mini 3 has touch ID AND it comes in Gold. The Mini 2 doesn't.

    So that's a lie. They're not the same.

    You just can't keep this straight can you.

    I don't understand the argument. If you don't want the upgraded specs then get or stay with the original air. If you want the upgrade then go for it. Again I personally wanted the upgraded version and when it arrives on Tuesday I will enjoy using it. What's important to me may not be important to you.

    There the same specs minus Touch ID .


    The air has the A7 and 1gb of ram and the air 2 has the A8x and 2gb of ram so yes the mini 2 and mini 3 are the same ...specs which is what matters

    Just like you calling the iPad Mini 2 and 3 the same isn't true either.

    So are you going to keep going forever?

    I already told you that you're right. What else do you want?

    Exactly. So they're not the same. One has touch ID and the other doesn't.

    I could tell it was the same thing over again when I saw the announcement. I have the iPad Air as well and I'm not willing to upgrade to something exactly the same as what I have.

    The best time to upgrade to it is next year when it's on clearance.

    I don't think many Air owners will. I think they're trying to lure those holding on to their iPad 2 and 3 and also new customers.

    As you say, it'll basically be the same thing for you. Unless you really need touch ID.

    Maybe the rumors are true and they'll have some sort of iPad Pro.

    But then the argument will be, why would anyone need an iPad pro to read their email and watch YouTube.
