Apple iPad Air 2 What We Expect For The Release Date, Specs and Price Of The Next iPad

Apple iPad Air 2: What we expect for the release date, specs and price of the next iPad. Now that the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are real products, speculation about Apple’s other overdue devices are getting more traction in the rumor mill. The Cupertino, Calif., company announced an event on October 16, cryptically stating “it’s been way too long”. Combined with recently leaked photos of what appears to be the thinnest iPad to date, we can confidently speculate on the unveiling of a new iPad at the upcoming presentation. An updated iPad Air and iPad Mini are on the short list of predictions,along with some new Mac computers.At this point, nothing is for certain, but there are a few safe bets on what we can expect to see. The upcoming iPads will run iOS 8, and Apple is expected to add a Touch ID sensor, an A8 processor, and possibly NFC capabilities, all of which can be found on the new iPhones. However, details on new features remain purely speculative. On the iPhones, Apple doubled the available storage at the top two price points (64GB and 128GB for the prices of last year’s 32GB and 64GB models, respectively).

Currently, for the 64GB and 128GB models, the Apple iPad Air is priced at $699 and $799, respectively. If Apple replicates its game plan, that could result in those prices dropping to $599 and $699. It would be a welcome change, since an expandable storage option is less likely. There are dubious rumors surrounding the announcement of a super-size 12. 9-inch Apple iPad, however, the gossip points towards a 2015 release. Extra large tablets haven’t exactly caught on, with Toshiba and Samsung being two of the most recent manufacturers to attempt to tackle the task, but Apple’s strong following might catch on to the flailing trend.

What do you think the next iPad will look like? Let us know in the comments section.
