The iPad Air 2 is technically Apple’s sixth generation iPad, it is one of the most popular tablets on the market. It’s slightly thinner than the original Air, but differs little in appearance, and has equipped with better hardware and software compared to its previous version. The Air 2 runs on iOS 8.1 and is power by Apple A8X chip, the triple-core 1.5 GHz CPU can help you run apps at fast speed. It has 9.7 inches LED-backlit IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen, and gets a higher-resolution 8-megapixel camera.

According to the iPad Air 2 supported video formats, it supports only videos in limited formats: MP4, H.263, H.264, MP3, WAV, eAAC+. For other HD files in XviD, M2TS, MTS, MXF, XAVC, WMV, AVI, MOV, VOB, MKV(DTS encoded), etc codec or formats, iPad Air 2 will not open and read directly. Some guys suggest installing a media player app for iPad Air 2, but it’s a pity like the popular video player MXplayer still can’t handle all of the media files. Here fast and easy solution is converting MKV/WMV/VOB/AVI/FLV/F4V/MTS/M2TS to iPad Air 2 compatible format via a third-party software. We highly recommend UFUWare HD Video Converter, which can convert MKV/WMV/VOB/AVI/FLV/F4V/MTS/M2TS videos to other mobile devices like iPad Mini 3, iPhone 6/6S, Google Nexus 10, Google Nexus 9 Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet, Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, Samsung Galaxy Tab S, Surface Pro 3, BlackBerry and many more for watching.
