That sounds like about it for the iPad Air 2. Will Mini get more than a mention? We'll find out in a minute, I'd guess.

Real-time volumetric lighting is pretty impressive, too.
Apple also continues to sell older versions of its iPad for $100 less than the equivalent newer models. Its 9.7-inch, fourth-generation iPad with retina display is available with 16GB for $399 for WiFi only or $529 for WiFi and cellular. The first iPad Mini costs $299 for 16GB and Wi-Fi only or $429 for an added cellular connection.
The iPad Mini with retina display starts at $399 for 16GB and goes up to $829 for 128GB with Wi-Fi and cellular. Both are available in 16GB, 32GB, 64GB and 128GB storage capacities.
Apple’s 9.7-inch iPads range in price from $499 for the 16GB WiFi-only version to $929 for the 128GB iPad Air with Wi-Fi and cellular capabilities.
Another nice auto-video-editing app -- using metal for faster processing. Lots of pre-set styles, it's always odd to start seeing people using the same presets and background music.
Apple hasn’t changed pricing for its 9.7-inch iPad since introducing the first model in 2010.
Apple continued selling the second-generation iPad until last year, when it phased out the device. At that time, it brought back the fourth-generation iPad as its cheapest 9.7-inch device.
It broke from its normal naming pattern by introducing the iPad Air a year ago, as well as the iPad Mini with Retina Display.
It started with the 9.7-inch iPad the first year and followed it up with the iPad 2 in 2011. In 2012, Apple released three tablets -- the third-generation “new iPad” in March and the fourth-generation iPad with retina display (typically called the iPad 4) and 7.9-inch iPad Mini in November.
Since introducing the first iPad in 2010, Apple has added at least one new model a year.
We're now seeing a demo of how this app works

Kantar Worldpanel, which conducted a survey of 20,000 consumers in the US, founded that only 3 percent of non-tablet owners said they definitely plan to buy a tablet in the next 12 months. Another 10 percent said they would probably buy one. But 43 percent said no. Of those people who said they won’t be buying a tablet over the next year, 72 percent said it’s because they’re happy with their current PCs.
The iPad Air, Apple's tablet introduced a year ago, comprises only 9 percent of iPads in the US, the firm said. And only 17 percent of iPads in use are the 7.9-inch iPad Mini.
The iPad most common in the US is the iPad 2, at 32 percent. That makes a lot of sense, though, because Apple kept selling that device up to last fall when it finally phased it out in favor of the fourth generation iPad with Retina Display.
Most of the iPads being used today in the US are older models, according to Kantar Worldpanel. The first iPad hit the market in April 2010, and about 14 percent of iPads currently in use in the US still are that model, the research firm said.
A problem for iPads sales is that people hold onto their tablets longer and also pass them along to friends and family when they upgrade. That means there are a lot of iPads in the market but not as many of them are new. The company will benefit if customers upgrade in big waves, but analysts expect more a measured pace, not everything rushing to buy new iPads at once.
A few thoughts about the iPad's sales problem
