iPad Air 2 is pretty much alike its predecessor i.e iPad Air 1. But iPad Air 2 is slimmer and thinner than iPad Air 1. It is so thin than can be passed below hotel room door. Obviously there was little cost to make it that slimmer and that was battery. Well to be honest, iPad Air 2 looks more charming and beautiful than iPad Air 1. It is little fragile than previous version. But don’t be afraid it is not gonna bend with use. Apple is known for its quality work. They make stylish products but not at the cost of hardware. Other features like volume buttons and sockets etc are in same place like iPad Air 1.
We got no doubt about its streamline touch interface. Working on iPad Air 2’s interface is much faster than that of Air 1. It comes with preinstalled iOS 8 – 8.1.3. As iOS 9 has been released by Apple, so iPad Air 2 users can easily update their iPads to iOS 9. There are thousands of apps available on Apple store for iPad. But usability of iPad Air 2 is really great. Flipping from one screen to another has never been so faster before.
Screen of both versions of iPad Air is alike. Just little tweaks have been made in screen of iPad Air 2. First thing Apple did to iPad Air 2 is removing air gaps between screen layers. Secondly, anti reflection has made display of iPad Air 2 just absolutely great. Now reflections can be manipulated and ignore easily.

Everyone has idea about the security and restriction of iOS devices. We can only download applications and perform actions which iOS allows. Jailbreaking is technique to exploit any bug or flaw in this iOS. As a result, we can have access to iOS root files and manager. In this way we can download additional applications that were not possible to install before jailbreaking.
A special term privilege escalation has been given to jailbreaking. It is like breaking the device from its own jail. Some users think that with jailbreak , their device won’t work normally. But that’s not true. Your iOS device can work normally even with jailbreak. If you will restore your device with iTunes, jailbreak installed on your device will get removed.

Apple released iOS 8.2 in March 2015. So hackers all around the world are trying to find any bug in iOS 8.2. For version iOS 8.1.3, there was jailbreak. But Apple is so smart, they used Taig JailBreak iOS 8.1.3 as a source of security vulnerability, as a result they fixed bugs on iOS 8.1.3. So you can say that iOS 8.1.3 is unjailbreakable. iOS 8.2 is the extension of iOS 8.1.3, so iOS 8.2 is also unjailbreakable right now.
Jailbreak experts have warned users to stay away from updates. If they are older versions with jailbreak installed, they should not install any newer update. Otherwise they won’t be able to jailbreak their device anymore.
Apple devices are so cool and smart, but users have complaints about iOS restrictions. So with release of iOs 8.2, users are awaiting for the jailbreal iOS 8.2. Right now, there is no official update about release of jailbreak iOS 8.2.
As per source, TaiG who were responsible for jailbreak for iOS 8.1 have made jailbreak for iOS 8.2 beta 1 and 2. But Apple has closed access to beta 1 and 2 since then. Newer betas have been released for iOS 8.2. Interestingly Apple has not fixed bugs for beta 1 and 2. So users should be optimistic as jailbreak experts are trying hard to jailbreak iOS 8.2.
According to TaiG website, they have stated that they completed untethered jailbreak for iOs 8.2. Obviously they are not gonna disclose the bugs they found in iOS 8.2. Otherwise Apple will fix them and iOS 8.2 will no longer jailbreakable.
So question is whether you should install iOS 8.2 update or not. Simple answer is that if you want iOS with jailbreak then don’t do it until jailbreak iOS 8.2 is released.
