The iPad Air 2 is going to be here in a couple of months. The device is expected to have a faster processor and better hardware components in general. The latest photos leaked by Taiwan-based accessory maker Yi Lin Enterprises show the rear shell of the iPad Air 2, which suggests the device will be getting some design changes. Apparently, Apple may change the location of the rear microphone. These photos suggest the new iPad will have a new speaker grille.
Apple is also expected to add a fingerprint scanner for the new iPad. Rumor has it that it will be even thinner than before. It will be interesting to see whether Apple will release a larger iPad or a hybrid Mac anytime soon. These devices have been rumored in the media for quite some time, but so far we have not seen anything that suggests we will see them in 2014.[via MacRumors]
