Apple unveiled its latest development at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater in San Francisco on Oct. 22, and we’re giving you a rundown of everything you missed — including the details of the new iPad Air.

Apple Inc. CEO, Tim Cook unveiled the brand new iPad Air, the first redesign of the tablet since 2011, when the iPad 2 was released.

Apple’s iPad 2 — 5 Things To Know

1. It’s lighter.
The iPad Air is 20 percent lighter and thinner than prior versions. It is 7.5mm thick and weights just one pound, 28 percent less than the last iPad.

2. It has better Wi-Fi.
The Air’s Wi-Fi will run up to 300Mbps — twice-as-fast as the last. It uses two antennas to provide more reliable speeds and producer faster results. It also supports Bluetooth 4.0.

3. The iPad Air is fast.
The iPad Air is much faster than the last. It features a 64-bit processor and an M7 motion coprocessor, the same that is found in the new iPhone 5S. It is eight times faster than the old system, and its graphics perform 72 times better.

4. It has 10 hours of battery life.
With such a light device, many were skeptical that the battery wouldn’t last as long. However, it remains the same, still lasting ten hours.

5. The camera is sick.
The camera — which is extremely important with the growing popularity of Instagram — is a 5-megapixel iSight camera, which supports 1080p HD video.  Even the front-face camera has 1.2-megapixels and supports 720p HD video calling.

You can get the Air in silver, white or grey in four different storage versions: 16GB, 32GB, 64GB or 128GB, starting at $499. An LTE version starts at $629. However, the iPad 2 will be continued for $399.

They will be made available in more that 24 countries beginning Nov. 1.

Will you get the new iPad Air?
