Report: Apple iPad Air 2 slated for release next month with 2015 launch for next iPad mini6
The Apple iPad Air 2 is expected to feature Touch ID, an A8 processor, and a redesigned speaker allowing for a thinner tablet. The M8 motion coprocessor is also expected on board.
While early rumors had the 9.7 inch iPad Air 2 launching together with the next iteration of the 7.9 inch Apple iPad mini, the new report on Monday reveals that the smaller screened slate will be released sometime next year. Also next year, a 12.9 inch version of the tablet, the Apple iPad Pro, is rumored to start up production in the second quarter, with a launch expected not too long afterward.
