‘The iPad is a simple and magical device, but while it has been beautifully simple on the outside, it has advanced technology jam packed on the inside,’ he said.

‘We have sold over 225 million iPads around the world,’ Cook revealed, before announcing the iPad Air 2, which the firm claims is the world’s thinnest tablet at 6.1mm thick.

It has a new chip, the A8X, 64-bit Processor – a new generation chip that is like the one in the iPhone 6 which is 40 per cent faster.

The gadget has a ten hour battery life, and a laminated screen with an anti-reflective coating, reduces reflections by 56 per cent.

It will cost $499 to $829 depending on features.

Apple also reduced the price of its original iPad Mini to $249, and introduced a new version with a Touch ID fingerprint sensor.

He also revealed Apple Pay, which allows iPhone 6 owners to pay using their handset simply by tapping it against a card reader.

‘We think that it is going to be profound,’ he said, before revealing the product will launch on Monday.

With Apple Pay, iPhone 6 and 6 Plus owners will be able to make payments at brick-and-mortar stores by holding their phone near a card reader.
