The iPhone 6 is getting the lion’s share of attention leading up to its unveiling on September 9, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t other products coming down the pipe from Apple. The iPad Air 2 has seen some leaked information surface, and for those who prefer the larger tablet, a nice RAM upgrade might just be what you want to hear.
While the majority of attention has been focused on the iPhone 6, the new device from Apple set to debut on September 9, there are also rumored to be new iPads set to debut around the same time. A new report from Bloomberg adds some credence to those claims.
On August 4, we got to see leaked images of what appeared to be the rear shell for the purported iPad Air 2. In a pair of new photos, we are offered a “complete” second-generation iPad Air, with plenty of details to make note of.
The second half of this year is gearing up to be an exciting one if you are a fan of Apple products, as the company is expected to take the wraps off new iPhones, iPads, the so-called “iWatch” and possibly new Macs and beyond. The latest rumors surround the so-called “iPad mini Air,” which is expected to be 30% thinner than its predecessor.Â
While there have been several rumors over the past few years suggesting that Apple is in talks with Sharp to implement IGZOÂ displays on its iOS devices, the cutting-edge technology has yet to find its way to the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. However, a new report claims that the iPad Air 3 could be the first iOS device with an IGZO-based screen.Â
Apple has been rumored for several months to beÂ working on its next-generation iPad, which has conveniently been referred to as the “iPad Air 2″ for naming purposes. The upcoming tablet is slated to be released in the fall, a busy season for Apple that should also mark the arrival of newÂ iPhones, Macs and the oft-rumored “iWatch,” likely at separate September and October media events.Â
It has been widely speculated that the next generation iPad Air dubbed iPad Air 2, and the iPad mini 3 will come withÂ Apple’sÂ Touch ID fingerprint sensor.
Apple is reportedly preparing an iPad hardware refresh for launch a few months later. A new report claims that the new iPad Air will feature the same design, but will come with improved internals, including a faster A8 chip and a better 8MP rear camera.
