Currently, the large iPads include the iPad Air and the iPad 2, and both come with iOS 7 pre-loaded. Consumers looking for a higher end featured tablet would definitely go with iPad Air.
However, the iPad 2 still remains appealing, given it’s being offered $100 cheaper than iPad Air, and has both Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi + Cellular models available. And it’s being offered at the same price as the current iPad mini. The iPad 2 has the same processor and display res as iPad mini 1, making the prices for both logical.
iPad Air and Retina iPad mini both come with 64-bit A7 processor and the new M7 chip, so those looking for a premium experience will off course want one of these two options.
Here is a comparison chart of how the iPad Air, iPad 2, iPad mini and iPad mini with Retina Display stand against each other.
So after seeing how all the iPads stand against each other, which one is for you?
