With Apple’s iPad event eight days away, the rumors and mockups are surfacing.

Per AppleInsider, Vietnamese blog Tinhte.vn has released shots of a mockup “iPad Air 2” unit that features a trimmer profile, recessed volume buttons, and the addition of a Touch ID sensor to the home button.

The supposed dummy unit matches up nearly identically with previous “leaks.” The device apparently comes in at just 7 millimeters thick, the same thickness as the iPhone 6.

Previous speculation has suggested that Apple may be considering relocating the microphone, as the dummy does not sport a microphone opening on top. It could also simply be based on an unfinished model, with the side hold acting as a pilot for machining a larger opening.


Little is known about the second-generation iPad Air, though it is almost certain to come with Touch ID and Apple’s latest A8 chip. Less certain is the inclusion of NFC for Apple Pay compatibility, but those questions should be answered next week during Apple’s rumored October 16th event in Cupertino.
