Apple's second-gen iPad Air purportedly shown with thinner design, Touch ID in new photos

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
A series of photos that surfaced Friday from central Europe claim to show a fully-assembled, second-generation iPad Air featuring a more svelte design, an updated speaker grille, and an integrated Touch ID sensor.




While the first-generation iPad Air is essentially the same thickness as the iPhone 5s, the unit shown by Hungarian website iMagazin appears noticeably thinner than Apple's flagship handset. The supposed device also sports the latter's fingerprint-reading home button.

In addition, the speaker grilles -- featuring a single row of relatively larger holes -- match up with previous "leaked" parts from the Far East. The current iPad Air ships with a two-row design of smaller holes.




Little else can be gleaned from the photos, and the unit was not powered on. It remains possible that the device shown is simply a mockup, though it does appear to boast a high degree of fit-and-finish.

Not much is known about Apple's plans for the next-generation iPad Air, with most speculation so far centered around the appearance of Apple's new "A8" application processor and the inclusion of Touch ID. The company is also thought to be considering a gold color variant.

The Touch ID iPad Air 2 is going to sell like crazy.

 

I know that I'll be getting one for sure. It's a good time for me to upgrade.

I upgraded from the iPad 3 to the iPad Air last year, so I probably won't upgrade again...but I'd love to get my hands on the iPad Mini w/ Touch ID. Surely I could justify owning both? :-D

Looks good. I rarely use my iPads but I will probably upgrade to this one.

Found this at the bottom of the original article. It was apparently all fake. Probably explains why it was removed.
