As we can see, Apple managed to improve a lot! the iPad with the arrival of the Air, especially if we focus on design, thickness and weight. Not to mention, of course, the A7 processor (with its M7 coprocessor) and support for the Brazilian 4G (LTE) standard.

The iPad mini with Retina screen then, not even talk. as if Apple had skipped an entire generation given the advances we had in processing, screen, support for 4G networks, among other things. Unfortunately, to accommodate the high resolution screen and a much larger battery, it got a little thicker and heavier, but I believe that this difference (really small) is not harmful.

It remains to be seen, now, when and for how much the new iPads will arrive in Brazil.
