Some people are complaining about the iPad Mini 3, which I can understand, since the only new thing on that is gold and touch ID. However, I've always felt that last year's iPad Mini should never have been equal to the iPad Air in terms of specs. And I didn't like that it was $100 cheaper than the Air, so I'm glad that Apple changed their strategy this year. Some people may have been disappointed by the iPad Mini 3 this year, but the iPad Air 2 is killer!
I acknowledge it! It's a huge update! Anybody who claims otherwise simply doesn't know what they're talking about and is totally clueless. The A8X chip seems to be a beast! And the A8 motion sensor seems to be cool too. 40% faster CPU! 2.5x faster graphics! How in the hell is that minor? What else has been improved or is brand new? Improved camera (both front & back) plus many camera features from the iPhone like slow mo, burst mode, time lapse and panorama. Super...
I've used iPads for years, and never once used that mute button. I had it set to orientation lock. It's not something that is often used or pressed, so having it in the control center is fine.
Also, you can mute by simply holding down the volume button.
I'm just wondering when this goes on sale?
In six hours and 15 minutes? I might have to be up a bit later tonight, because I definitely want one as quick as possible, and I don't want to take the chance on any sold out scenario happening, or delayed shipping dates.
