If there is one thing that Apple’s iPads are known for, it would be their long battery life, which is actually a stark contrast to their smartphones. This is thanks to the huge batteries Apple has managed to squeeze inside the tablets. That being said, it looks like with the iPad Air 2, Apple might have ended up sacrificing battery life for thinness.
This is according to the folks at iFixit who have recently conducted a teardown of the iPad Air 2 and found that instead of a 32.9 watt-hour battery configuration used in last year’s model, the iPad Air 2 instead feature a 7,340mAh battery with a 27.62 watt-hour configuration. Interestingly enough Apple is still boasting 10 hours of continuous use per charge, or 9 hours on the WiFi + cellular model.

Apple Pay was launched earlier this week and it looks like there is a bug already. According to our report earlier today, it seems that Apple Pay users who used cards linked to Bank of America were double charged. The Bank of America has since acknowledged the issue and has promised a fix by the end of today.
It seems that the problem did not come from a bug within Apple Pay, but rather it was a glitch due to a miscommunication between the bank’s systems and a payment network which was not named. This essentially puts Apple off the hook, although admittedly the fact that they are linked will no doubt leave some negative impressions on those who were already skeptical to begin with.
