In addition, earlier rumors attributed the new tablet to feature Touch ID fingerprint sensor like the iPhone 5s. New source shared “live” pictures of the device in comparison with the current iPad Air on the market.
From those images, the iPad Air 2 did not undergo global changes, although differences still there. So, the gadget will be even thinner than its predecessor, as seen on images, the thickness of the plate is reduced by about a millimeter. This should influence the weight of the second-gen iPad Air. Apple will release a more compact and lightweight gadget.
