After iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, the next big thing for Apple fans would be the launch of the new iPads, Macs and more. Apple is all set for its event on October 16th and has sent out the press invites for the same.
Now ahead of the unveiling of the new slates and PCs, One of the Vietnamese websites has got hold of the new iPad and has posted a gallery of images online as well. It seems to be a prototype of the new iPad Air or the iPad Air 2. One of the most impressive things that this recent leak suggests is the thickness of the new iPad. According to the leak, the new iPad measures just 7 mm thick.
Although, there are several images leaked in this leak, the internal hardware has not been spoken of so far. However, to take cues from the Chinese blog that has got its hands on the internal hardware of the upcoming iPad Air, the new device would be powered by a faster A8X processor and 2GB of RAM.
It is also said that the next iPad Air would also feature a Touch ID fingerprint sensor on the home button, which will allow Apple Pay transactions as with the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Apple is launching Apple Pay later this month in the US, so there will be a wide range Apple products making the most of this service, including the new iPad.
However, these are just the rumors and is subject to change at the time of unveiling. But it is not just the 9.7-inch iPad Air that is on the pipeline, but at the same time, Apple might also unveil its larger tablet, which some speculate to be the iPad Pro.
