iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3 have been updated to apple‘s line of iPad tablets. It's a conflicting time for you now. Which new iPad should you choose? Here are everything you need to know.
The iPad Air 2 is only 6.1mm thick, which is 18 percent thinner than last year's iPad Air, and includes an anti-reflective coating on the display. The tablet is equipped with a faster A8X 64-bit chip, an improved 8-megapixel camera and a Touch ID fingerprint scanner in the home button. The new iPad Mini 3 is nearly identical to last year's iPad Mini 2 tablet (they share the same processor and camera), although the newer model has also added the Touch ID fingerprint scanner to the home button.

iPad Air 2 - Pros & Cons:
*Beautiful, thin aluminum design
*Incredibly powerful A8X chip
*Touch ID included
*Battery life could be better
*Some will miss the mute switch
iPad Mini 3 - Pros & Cons:
*Touch ID now comes included
*Long battery life
*Only a couple of upgrades
*Commands a $100 premium over last year's model
SUMMARY: The iPad Air 2 is Apple's most powerful tablet yet, and is incredibly thin and light. It's a solid upgrade over last year's Air, and should definitely be one of your top tablet considerations. The iPad mini 3 is just as good as its predecessor, but its lack of feature upgrades doesn't justify its price and places it behind the Air 2 in specs. Unless you love Apple's fingerprint sensor and Apple Pay, you may want to opt for last year's model instead.
