iPad Air 2 Release Date

Why should the iPhone 6 have all the fun? A new report from Korean-language news agency ET News claims that components for Apple’s next-generation iPad Air tablet will go into production later this month.

According to sources that the site declined to name, the second-gen iPad Air will feature the same design as the current model. The high-resolution Retina display will supposedly be unchanged as well, sporting 2,048 x 1,536 pixels and a density of 264 pixels per inch.

What will be upgraded, however, are the tablet’s processor and its camera.

The site claims that Apple’s upcoming new A8 processor will power with next-gen iPad Air, and the rear camera will reportedly be upgraded from 5 megapixels on the current model to 8 megapixels on the new one. Displays for the new Air will apparently enter production later this month, while processors and camera components will seemingly begin rolling off the lines in July.

Apple’s new iPad Air is expected to launch sometime this fall alongside a third-generation iPad mini that will likely feature similar incremental upgrades.
