Apple last night announced iPad Air, the latest generation of its category-defining device, featuring a 9.7-inch Retina display in a thinner and lighter design and weighing just one pound. Apple also announced a new iPad mini with Retina display, bringing all the pixels from the 9.7-inch iPad to its 7.9-inch screen, delivering razor sharp text and detail in the same thin and light design.

The iPad Air comes with four different storage capacities: 16GB, 32GB, 64GB and 128GB.
The Wi-Fi iPad Air starts at £399 for the lowest storage capacity. Doubling to 32GB costs £479, while 64GB will set you back £559. The highest storage capacity costs £639.
Both new iPad models feature the powerful and power-efficient Apple-designed A7 chip with 64-bit desktop-class architecture, ultrafast wireless with faster built-in Wi-Fi and expanded LTE cellular connectivity, and iOS 7 featuring hundreds of great new features. “iPad created an entirely new mobile computing experience, and the new iPad Air is another big leap ahead,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “It is so thin, light and powerful, once you hold one in your hand you will understand what a tremendous advancement this is.”
Welcome to the iPad Mini with Retina this is the first time Apple has made a iPad Mini with a retina screen. The iPad Mini with Retina display will be available with the same storage spaces at a slightly lower price compared to the iPad Air.
16GB will cost £319, followed by £399 for 32GB. The 64GB model is priced at £479, leaving the 128GB model, which will cost £559.
