Question: What Is the Latest Version of the iPad?
The current iPad is the iPad Air and iPad Mini 2. The iPad Air is the fastest iPad, featuring a high resolution screen and the fastest version of Apple's A7 processor. The iPad Mini 2 has the same A7 processor featured in iPhone 5S, but for most other purposes, it is the same as the iPad Air, including a Retina Display.
Apple continues to sell the iPad 2 and the original iPad Mini as cheaper alternatives to the iPad Air and the iPad Mini 2.
