A8X chip. Incredibly powerful. But not power hungry.
From launching apps to playing games to editing video, everything is more fluid and responsible on iPad Air 2. That’s because the all-new A8X chip with 64-bit desktop-class architecture provides 40 percent faster CPU performance than the A7 chip in the previous iPad Air. It also has 2.5 times the graphics performance. And yet iPad Air 2 still gives you up to 10 hours of battery life1.
