The whole truth about the battery
Since the topic is often asked questions about how to properly charge the tablet, it was decided to make a special spoiler, under which reliable, official information will be collected:
  • Lithium-ion batteries have a high specific capacity, which provides a longer operating time with less weight. In addition, lithium-ion batteries can be recharged at any time, without waiting for them to fully discharge or recharge.
  • Most Li-ion battery is first charged to 80% in fast mode, and then proceed to trickle charging. For example, you will need about two hours to charge the iPad up to 80%, and then another two hours to charge the battery until the end - on the condition that you do not use your device while charging. Lithium-ion batteries can be recharged a large number of times, but this number is not infinite. It is the number of charge cycles. The implication is that you should use the charge to the end, but not necessarily charge the battery in one step. Let's say you use the iPad for several hours during the day. You use half the battery and then charge it to the end. If the next day you do the same thing, you get one charge cycle, not two, that is, one cycle can take several days. After each cycle of charging the battery capacity decreases slightly, but you can not worry: will take many charge cycles before the battery capacity on your laptop, iPod or iPad will decline to 80% of the original.
  • Lithium-ion batteries require constant maximum loads. If you do not use the device too often, spend at least one full charge cycle once a month.

A small comparison of Ipad5 and all previous ones
http: //savagemessiahzine.com/2013/11/02/122377/
Honestly - I expected more
There is not enough launch of games and applications, but on this comparison of all the hits, the novelty is not impressive at all

No matter how the Achilles heel of the new iPad Air becomes the amount of RAM. Too little, 1 GB for a top tablet with a huge resolution for the end of 2013 - this is not serious. That was enough for the 3/4 generation, but this, forgive me, the beginning of 2012 was. Sadly

It will not, believe me. Architecture Apple and this is good, that to expand the RAM is not much point. today purely on physical indicators AIR- yesterday with a dual-core processor, 1GB of memory, though the droid backgrounds have long nuclear boast 4 percent and 2 GB of operatives. but no matter how they pyzhilis, still outdo Yabloko they fail. Try ushatat 1 gb such as the iPhone. however I did not try, open the app and ALL games are available-figushki! Nothing hanging or tupit. it is distributed very well.



Rep: (11)
rayden1234567 I just mentioned about it. iPad 1st generation undoing was his 256 MB RAM, Apple was forced to complete his support to 5.1.1, iPod Touch 4th generation has lived up to 6.1.3 at the same iron (less resolution, no gestures, etc. ), and was also urgently removed from the Apple Store for the 2 weeks prior to the presentation of iOS 7. Here the screen resolution is higher than all the texture eat more RAM. Of course the problem can occur immediately, at the start of sales, and the first generation was all good, but with the following updates the problems started. Let's see, I would love to be wrong. : Rolleyes:

Rep: (535)
Because the forum has a lot of talk about performance gains, I decided to make a simple but very interesting comparison.
And what is interesting about it! The program in which I will compare iPhone 5 with iPad Air is forgotten by developers long before the release of the first iOS7 beta, respectively, there are no updates and optimizations, it is not in the store at all, that is, only those who have bought it have remained.
The program is called photoforge-powerful tool for processing photos in any resolution. The most important thing for such a software processor and RAM, that is, we can seereal increase in performance, without any embellishment and optimizations, the naked truth, so to speak ...
One photo (16MP) was used in comparison, a rather “heavy” effect was applied to it ...
The PS program is naturally not optimized for iOS7 and, accordingly, does not know what 64-bit is, that is, the processor works with it in 32-bit mode.

I said about that - we need tests for launching prog / games and working in editors of various
If there is still an option to compare the same operations on the ipad, then there will be a buzz

And yet .. ipad5 - 64-bit system, in the future should be in the black

ps
Personally for myself, I decided after the presentations - Ipad5, in theory, should be the last ipad for me - after that nothing can be accelerated and I’m unlikely to improve, because now Ipad1, Ipad3, Ipad4 are in use .. Ipad1 is discarded altogether, of course Ipad3 and 4 places are not enough (they always used them purely for the Internet and occasionally kick birds), but in terms of performance they are completely satisfied
So, I will switch to ipad5 just for the sake of increasing the space for films and calm / ignore about ipadov 6, 7 .. 10, etc.

I didn’t even look at them) I took a couple (ipad1 and ipad2) for 32, then I realized that I was always busy with no more than 5GB, but Ipad3, Ipad4 took for 16
Then addicted to movies - it took a place
There are games too, but no more than 6-8pcs .. not fond of
I tried to play with the graphics, but nothing went beyond the games on the tablet, because in real life I use Adobe Photoshop, Corel, Adobe Premiere

In general, thanks for the new info

The same as the iPhone 5S and a little more points only due to the increased processor frequency.

Please do not scold .... Someone will tell. It was Ipad 4 (Presented to the Spouse) I turned it on and checked the quality of the picture is clear (Applied a transparent film .... The quality is the same) Only transparent leaves fingerprints.
I bought Air yesterday, turned on the quality also super (I decided to apply a film for the first time that does not leave fingerprints (Matte) ..... The picture quality became worse. I felt a bit smeared or some kind of traces like wet under film .... such a film?

Alko2011, I think that yes, put matte films, in my opinion, a thankless task



Rep: (45)
But with the release of Air, I thought about what to take ... I wanted to change 4S to 5S first, but something 5S is not very happy. But I think I should change my iPad 4 on Air. And I think this time it’s worth taking with the 4G module. The obvious advantages of Air except that smaller dimensions with the same display, less weight and most importantly stereo speakers, with which games and movies will be perceived differently. If we talk about performance, then 4 has no problems with it at all, that is, it is not a factor at all for replacement.
And can anyone clarify the situation with LTE? When Apple will allow 4G in Russia to use on its devices, will the new Aipads have such an opportunity, or not?

Yes, and for how much approximately can you sell ipad 4 32GB Wi-Fi in perfect condition, and so far on the guarantee?

The speakers sound really good, just like in Macbook EIR 11 ", but they are not separated, respectively, there is no bright stereo effect :-(

I thought about that.

What do you think about LTE on Air will work in Russia? Just as in the case of the 5S will need some kind of specific model?
