One look at the iPad Air and you can easily tell how Apple was able to make it so much thinner than every previous iPad. The landscape bezel is significantly slimmer. The reduction in finger space is well worth the cost to have a lighter tablet. However, the missing edge can cause accidental actions in some instances. Personally, I’ve only noticed that error once or twice in the past few months. It has happened, though. According to a new patent from Apple, there may be a time in the future when the iPad will shrink even smaller in size and the bezel won’t even be an issue thanks to smart sensor technology that would detect whether the screen was being touched for action, or simple being held.
