IPad Air 2 And IPad Mini 3 Get Confirmed By Apple

Just as Google was busy announcing its recent Nexus family, Apple managed to confirm the names of the two recent tablets that it will introduce at its special event tomorrow.

They will be the iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3, the latter being the successor to the iPad Mini with Retina Display from last year and thankfully returning to a more concise naming scheme.

The names surfaced on iBooks via screenshots in the iOS 8.1 user guide for iPads. The screenshots have since been pulled, as you'd expect. They also confirm that the design of the recent tablets will be mostly unchanged compared to their predecessors.

That said, both the iPad Air 2 and the iPad Mini 3 will sport Touch ID fingerprint sensors in their Home buttons, as has been leaked extensively until now. The iPad Air 2 will also acquire a recent Burst Mode for the camera, a feature first introduced on the iPhone 5S from last year.

Since Apple's getting ready to publish the user guide for iOS 8.1, we assume this version of the Operating System (OS) will be released tomorrow alongside the recent tablets. And it should support Apple Pay.

A recent A8X chipset has been recently rumored to feature in at least one of the recent iPads, along with a grecent color option and improved capturing camera performance.
