Apple just unveiled two new iPads, the iPad Air and the iPad mini with Retina.

The iPad Air is the new name for Apple’s full-sized iPad. It’s significantly thinner and lighter than the previous model.

Meanwhile, the iPad mini also got an upgrade. It now has a sharp Retina display like the iPhone and iPad.

The iPad Air will start at $US499 and goes on sale November 1. The iPad mini will cost $US399.

Unlike previous iPad mini models, this one comes with Retina display.

The iPad mini sports Apple's new mobile operating system, iOS 7.

It should make for a much more enjoyable experience with photos, iBooks, and movies.

The iPad mini comes with tons of built-in apps. Tools like iPhoto, iMovie, GarageBand, Pages, Numbers, and Keynote are now all available for free.

Apple says the iPad mini delivers twice the Wi-Fi performance of the last model.
