Apple has released their new iPad Air 2 device. To save you time digging around for video reviews on the iPad Air 2, here is a selection of informative videos about this product, and what you can expect from it. Big question is, if you’re already an iPad Air owner, is it worth splashing out for this new model?

This video from PCMag presents quite a detailed and yet relatively concise review of the iPad Air 2, in just over 4 minutes.

In a nutshell

My thoughts, in a nutshell (or is that in a SmartCase?) is that if you already own an Apple iPad Air, there’s really no significant reason to upgrade just for the sake of it. The iPad Air 2 offers nothing revolutionary over the previous model. If you don’t have an iPad Air and want/need one, this is obviously a as good a time as any to get your hands on the latest Apple has to offer in this product line. This may also apply if you own a now dated original iPad (pre-Air). Upgrading to the the Air 2 will certainly feel like a leapt forward if you use your device for more than just watching videos and basic stuff.
