Is Apple working on a refreshed version of the iPad Air? Assuming that Apple keeps to their schedule and their habits, there is a very good chance we could be looking at the iPad Air’s successor later this year. In fact there have been rumors about the tablet, such as how it will sport Touch ID sensors and how it could pack 2GB of RAM.
Now thanks to newly leaked photos, it seems that alleged components from the iPad Air 2 have been leaked. The components in question are the flex cables which includes antennas for WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS. According to the French website iPhonote that published them, they claim that the photos came from a second-hand source who has connections to a Shenzhen parts supplier.
Unfortunately what this means is that the source might be too far removed for it to be verified properly, which means that for all we know, the components pictured above could be fake. This is not the first time we’ve seen purported photos of the iPad Air 2 leak. Back in July, photos of the iPad Air 2’s shell surfaced, giving us a glimpse at slightly redesigned buttons, a Touch ID sensor, and also redesigned speaker grills.
It should probably be taken with a grain of salt for now, but if Apple were to keep to schedule, we guess we will learn more about the iPad Air 2 in the next few months, so be sure to check back with us at a later date for more information.
