Although we are months away from the next generation iPad, a model of what seems to be the iPad Air 2 has just been released on the interwebs for your lovely eyes to view.
Now, this video only talks about the actual dummy-model itself, but apparent are the new speaker grille, a thinner form factor than its predecessor, and recessed volume buttons.
The most exciting thing about the Apple iPad Air 2, though, is the Touch ID home button.
Now, before I got my iPhone 5S, I really didn't think the Touch ID button was all that special. But after my old iPhone's screen met the floor and cracked into a million pieces, I swallowed my pride, got the 5S, and realized that I absolutely adored the Touch ID—so much so that I find myself trying to use it on my Touch ID-less iPad. Suffice it to say, I'll be pretty stoked if it makes its way to the iPad Air 2 (or whatever Apple decides to call it).
No word yet on price, but the release date is predicted sometime around November, at the same time that iOS 8 becomes available to the public, though we'll be hard pressed to get any "official" word on any of this from Apple.
