The Apple iPad Air (5th gen) in the video

Both for the new Apple iPad Air and for all the information from yesterday Keynote you can watch a video of each. Because on Apple's YouTube channel there are not only videos advertising the new devices, but also the entire "Peek Performance" stream as a video on demand. In the following I have embedded the two videos (introduction of the iPad Air and the entire keynote) so that you don't have to search for them for a long time.
