Images of Apple's 'iPad Air 2' hit the Web, show off new speaker grille

August 4, 2014

Apple’s “iPhone 6” might have been the focus of many recent iOS-related leaks, but now images of Cupertino’s anticipated “iPad Air 2” have surfaced online, too.

The pictures were posted to Weibo (via Macotakara) and draw attention to a number of design changes expected to appear with the iPad Air 2. This time, however, the leaked images show off the tablet’s rear shell only: changes including a new speaker grille and a relocated microphone are noticable.

Take a look:

Apple’s “iPad Air 2” is expected to launch in Apple Retail Stores this fall, around October. Much like the next-generation iPad mini, the revamped iPad Air device should feature a Touch ID fingerprint scanner and an Apple A8 processor, along with further under-the-hood performance improvements.

Though last year’s iPad Air marked a real change in the device’s design, Apple’s upcoming 9.7-inch iPad has been described as a “real game changer,” according to recent reports.

Of course, we hope to know more soon. We’ll keep you updated with further information as we receive it.

In the meantime, see: Apple reportedly set to open second retail store in Turkey this fall, Chord! guitar app goes 2.0 with universal support, new songbook mode and more features, and Today’s apps gone free: InstaPlace, DMD Clone, Freezit and more.
