The rumor mill is heating up as fall approaches close with each passing day. Come fall, Apple is expected to show off its new smartphones and tablets, so it is quite understandable why the rumor frenzy is reaching new heights. We have already heard a lot about what the new devices might bring. A video has appeared online which compares a purported iPad Air 2 with Touch ID with an iPad Air.

Mind you its a dummy of the purported next generation iPad that’s being compared with Apple’s existing tablet flagship. We have seen such mockups leak many times in the past, the iPhone mockups that leaked last year were spot on. This is why they capture the attention of Apple fans as they tend to be quite similar to the real deal.

The iPad Air 2 mockup seen in this video is actually quite similar to the one we saw recently in leaked photos. Apple’s Touch ID fingerprint sensor was seen in those photos as well, like its seen in this video. Rumor has it that much more durable fingerprint sensors will make their way in all iPhones and iPads released this year. Images of the next generation iPad mini with Retina display touting a Touch ID sensor have also leaked recently.

We can see in the video that the iPad Air 2 appears to be thinner than the iPad Air, and it seems that the buttons and speakers have had their design altered a bit. Still though, no radical design changes catch our eye.

For all we know this could be the mockup of a prototype or it may very well be the next generation iPad. That’s the thing with unofficial leaks, you can never be too sure.
