Apple is expected to launch its next generation iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3 tablets in the coming holiday season. The Cupertino California-based tech giant is expected to launch its new iPad models most probably by the end of October or early November.
French blog Nowhereelse.fr has posted two new leaked images of the rear shell of Apple's purported iPad Air 2 tablet. These leaked images "confirm that among other things the back microphone is now placed alongside the image sensor of the tablet rather than the center of the upper part, [and] that the volume control buttons are now inserted in a cavity."
Apple "has been working with suppliers for at least a year to develop a new range of larger touch-screen devices," people familiar with the matter told Bloomberg.
The suppliers of Apple Incorporated are preparing to start production of the company's largest-ever iPad tablet, that will reportedly come with 12.9 inch display screen, early next year. This largest iPad is called the iPad Pro.
However, the suppliers of Apple have currently started manufacturing an updated version of a 9.7-inch screen iPad called iPad Air 2, and also a next generation iPad mini 3 tablet. Both tablets are expected to go on sale in the upcoming holiday season.
Actually the CEO of Apple is "working hard to shake up the iPad line." After the decline of sales of tablets in the last two quarters due to lack of new models, Tim Cook is now focusing more on launching new and larger tablets along with big screen smartphones. Apple is also expected to launch its largest ever iPhone smartphone next month.
