With just a matter of days until Apple is expected to unveil the oft-rumored iPad Air 2, alleged pictures of the next-generation tablet have surfaced on Vietnamese website Tinhte.vn, revealing a thinner chassis, Touch ID and no mute switch.
While Apple’s big September event has come and gone, and with it we saw the unveiling of the iPhone 6 lineup, Apple Pay and Apple Watch, there’s another event often rumored to be right around the corner.
Just as the whirlwind of rumors and speculation surrounding the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus has come to a close, the rumor mill has quickly shifted gears to Apple’s next unannounced product. Taiwan-based TechNews reports on Thursday that the oft-rumored 12.9-inch “iPad Pro” could be powered by a faster Apple A8X processor.

According to Taiwanese blog DigiTimes, which has a hit-and-miss track record as it relates to reporting on Apple’s upcoming product plans, supply chain partners for the Cupertino-based company are reportedly ramping up production of components to be used in the next-generation iPad Air 2. The upcoming tablet is expected to be thinner and lighter than the current iPad Air, retaining a 9.7-inch screen and improved Touch ID fingerprint scanner.
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.
