Now that we've got the iPhone 6 rumors and announcement date all squared away, it's time to focus our attention on the second-most important iDevice: the iPad. Production of the new iPad has begun, and according to Bloomberg, iOS users should expect two models, a full-size 9.7-inch tablet and a smaller, newer iPad Mini, in the Fall.
What We Know So Far
- An antireflection screen! — Now this is something to get excited about. Today, Bloomberg reported that the new iPad's screen won't reflect in the sun, like the current iPad's shiny display. Now the iPad will be more lounge- and beach-friendly with its new, easier-to-read screen.
- Thinner, with Touch ID — Last month, the Japanese website ASCII Plus posted these fairly convincing leaks of the next generation iPad Air. The photos reveal that the "iPad Air 2" is allegedly even thinner and could have a fingerprint-sensing home button, just like the iPhone 5S.
- Same screen size and resolution — The second-generation iPad Air will have the same resolution (2,048 x 1,536), reported Phone Arena. The screen will also be 9.7 inches diagonal, like the current model.
