iPad Air 2 hands-on: Witness the waif

Did the iPad Air need to be any slimmer? Apple certainly thinks so, and so the iPad Air 2 was born, just 6.1mm thick and now blessed with a Touch ID sensor that was previously limited to its iPhone cousins.

Retina iMac hands-on: Tim Cook explains the “Wow!”

The iMac has always had a certain wow-factor, particularly in its most recent design iteration with its 5mm-thick body, but pair that with the new Retina 5K Display and you have an even more eye-catching machine.

More iPads sold in 4 years than any Apple product in history

More iPads sold in 4 years than any Apple product in history

This afternoon Apple has suggested that they’ve sold more iPads in the product’s first four years of availability than any other product. Even the iPhone, Apple’s best-selling product, didn’t reach the sales numbers the iPad did in its first four years in its own first four years. Adoption of the iPad was a lot easier to accomplish than the iPhone - no data costs, after all. Now Apple's quest must be how to replace those iPads - what's a new iPad when you already have one, after all?
