iPad Air 2 details leaked ahead of launch event

iPad Air 2 launch eventApple have accidentally dropped the ball by leaking images and details of the new iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3 models ahead of the much anticipated launch at their headquarters in Cupertino today.

Screenshots of the iPad User Guide for iOS 8.1 on iTunes included photos, naming and a few details of the two new devices, much to their embarrassment.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like the new iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3 are much to shout about to be honest, they are pretty much the same as the current models in terms of size, style and design.

iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3 new features

The only noticeable differences appear to be the introduction of the Touch ID fingerprint sensor on the home button, as seen on the iPhone 5s, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus handsets.

There are a few other little enhancements such as the introduction of a ‘camera burst mode’, a more powerful A8X microprocessor and a gold color option. Pretty much everything that you find as standard with their latest handsets.

And that’s about all. Apple Fans expecting to see something ground-breaking and revolutionary are sure to be left disappointed. I am sure the iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3 will be big sellers though, as with most Apple releases.
