Apple has just announced its press invitations for an event to happen on October 16, and historically this has everything to do with Macs and iPads. If you’re wondering what changes are coming to the new iPads, we’ve heard that they’re getting significantly thin, but there’s nothing better than a visual demo of what to expect.
A very credible Vietnamese source has just leaked some photos of a dummy of Apple’s new iPad Air, which we’re currently dubbing the iPad Air 2. You’ll notice that this tablet is significantly thinner, as the source claims that it’s just 7mm thick when compared to 7.5mm in last-year’s iPad Air. It also follows some of the design elements of the iPhone 6, like a single line of drilled speakers at the bottom, the recessed volume buttons, along with the Touch ID home button. We were hoping to see the chamfered edges disappear on these tablets, just like we’ve seen on the iPhone 6, but it seems that these will continue to exist for another iPad generation.
Other separate rumors of these new iPads is that we’re getting a boost to 2GB of RAM, in addition to new storage options that may start at 32GB. We also hear that split screen options for multi-tasking might reach iPads as well, so stay tuned as we learn more details.
