Apple annonced new model of iPad – iPad Air 2. It is a bit thinner and more powerful.
As for music apps the best feature is updated CPU. Now it comes with A8X (previous iPad Air came with A7 and iPhone 6 comes with A8).
Apple claims A8X chip as 40% faster then previous A7. And also it is 100$ cheaper then previous model.
So is it worth upgrading?
If you already have iPad Air and it works fine it is probably doesn’t make much sense. But for owners of previous models like iPad 4 (which I own by the way) it could be really good upgrade option to be able to run more complex Audiobus chains, more IAA synths and effects and of course more plugins in Auria without the need of freezing tracks.
