With a new thinner iPad behind it
Cook: It's unbelievable gorgeous and look how thin it is. "
Can you even see it?"
The iPad Air 2 is very thin. When Fedex delivers it, they just slip it under your door.
Now Phil Schiller on stage. "It's the thinnest iPad we've ever made." 18% thinner. The world's thinnest tablet.
Showing a photo. 2 stacked new ipads are still thinner than the first gen ipad
iPad Air, at 6.1 mm, is "thinnest tablet in the world." 2 of them stacked: still thinner than original iPad. Also, you can roll it up.
There's a new anti-reflective coating on the iPad Air 2 screen. Does that mean I can't use it to check my hair anymore?
Schiller: How'd they do it? Start with the display. No air gap in the display assembly anymore. Reduces reflection. And now an anti-reflection coating. The best tablet display in the thinnest tablet.
New A8X CPU. 3 billion transistors, 40% faster CPU, 2.5x faster graphics.
iPad Air 2: Its A8X chip is 40% faster. it has 3 billion transistors. I'd hate to be the guy who has to count them.
New device is 180x faster than first iPad.
How long before the first people start complaining that the iPad Air 2 bends when they sit down with it in their pockets?
Schiller: 10 hours of battery life.
Schiller: New iPad has motion chip, and barometer.
Schiller: "The iPad is the best viewfinder for your photos."
The camera in the iPad Air 2 is improved. Still unimproved: how idiotic you look taking pictures with a tablet.
Schiller: The new iSight camera is a full new 8 megapixel camera, with big pixels and a f 2.4 aperture.
At my kid's piano recital a couple months ago, some mom COMPLETELY blocked my view by filming the whole thing with her iPad.

You can take panoramas, up to 43 megapixels. And you can take burst photos. And Timelapse. (Showing the George Clooney wedding party boats in Venice)
The iPad Air 2 gains time-lapse video like iPhone 6. Still can't figure out how MUCH it speeds up the video--seems to vary by video length.
The iPad now has dual microphones.
And there's a new Facetime camera on the front.
You can do burst selfies.
