New iPads

It looks like Apple themselves have leaked the names and some of the spec details for new iPad models to be announced today – the iPad Air 2 and the iPad mini 3.

As 9to5Mac reports, the leaks are via the iOS 8.1 iPad User Guide in iBooks. A page in the guide showed images of the two new models that also revealed the widely expected Touch ID sensor added to the new iPads – although the page was removed shortly after being spotted.

The screenshots confirm that both new tablets will include nearly identical designs to their predecessors and the addition of Touch ID sensors in the Home button. Another new feature confirmed by this leak is a new Burst Mode (first introduced with the iPhone 5s) for the iPad Air 2 …

The naming convention (returning to numbering the iPad models) is interesting and this leak certainly takes a little more mystery out of today’s iPad announcements. I’m still hoping for some good news on RAM increases and more new features for these new iPads, though not necessarily betting on them.
