Apple is expected to unveil at least one new tablet model on Thursday, a 9.7-inch iPad Air 2 tablet that is supposed to offer users a new, slimmer design as well as better internal components. Following the various leaks that have already detailed design changes along with certain features of the iPad Air 2, Apple.club.tw has posted a few images showing certain components from the upcoming next-generation iPad Air model.

FROM EARLIER: New leak may confirm a key iPad Air 2 feature

The publication has posted pictures that supposedly show the logic board, home button flex cable, front panel and volume control flex cable, as MacRumors reports.

Interestingly, the main board seems to include an A8X processor, which is likely an even faster A8 processor supposed to better deal with the requirements of the iPad. Recently, reports have suggested Apple’s iPad Air 2 may feature a high-resolution “Retina HD” display, as well as 2GB of RAM.

The home button flex cable also seems to confirm the upcoming iPad Air will feature a Touch ID fingerprint sensor in the home button, just like the iPhone 6.

The volume control flex cable seems to suggest the iPad Air 2 may not feature a mute button, something recent reports and image leaks have also suggested.

Pictures showing these iPad Air 2 components follow below.
