iPad Air 2 iPad mini 3

Apple just unveiled its new line of ipad Air and iPad mini tablets. The big news is the small size. The tablet is now 18 percent thinner than the iPad Air at only 6.1mm. Watch out for “Bendgate” part two. The new mobile device has a few new features, nothing we didn’t already hear about from leaks in the chain. As noted in the “dummy” models we saw earlier. There is no Mute/Rotation Lock button. Probably the best news is that preorders begin just after midnight tonight. Hopefully, you’ve taken the morning off tomorrow, because you’ll be up late tonight.

In the somewhat vague instructions Cook recited, he noted that it is in your iTunes library and all you have to do is play it in order to keep it in your playlist.
