If rumors have anything to say, the forthcoming iPads are expected to be made available in Gold color. The iPad Air 2 is expected alongside a smaller iPad Mini 3, as well as a new iMac.

The Cupertino-based tech giant could bring its TouchID fingerprint sensor to the iPads. The iPad Air 2 will reportedly retain its 9.7-inch screen, but will come with A8 chipset and 2GB of RAM.

Meanwhile, we've made a list of top 5 trending rumors you should know about Apple's forthcoming iPad lineup.

According to Taiwanese website TechNews, sources within Apple supply chain claim that iPad Air 2 will get double the RAM. This means the amount of RAM is going to doubled to 2GB from 1GB.

The new iPad Air 2, which is said to be introduced sometime this month, will include gold as a choice of color, apart from the existing silver and gray color options for the company's flagship tablet lineup, Bloomberg reported. But no word on whether the gold color will be coming to the iPad mini 3.

Fingerprint Scanner

According to MacRumors, Apple's TouchID scanner is expected to appear on the iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3. Though most rumors have centered on the forthcoming 9.7-inch iPad Air 2 which might suggest that updates to the iPad Mini 3 may be minor.

Apple has already launched the iPhone 6 with a next generation A8 processor on board and it is very likely Apple will follow suit and install the same processor into the iPad Air 2.

According to sources close to Bloomberg, production of a full-sized iPad with a 9.7-inch screen is already under way, with an unveiling projected for the end of this quarter or early next. A new version of the 7.9-inch iPad mini is also entering production and will probably be made available later this year.
