iPad Air 2 hardware specs & design rumors: Is a 12.9-inch iPad really on the way?

New iPad Air 2, from behind, showing thinner body and new in-set volume buttons
With Apple’s new iPad event officially scheduled for October 16, it’s time to take a final look at all of the leaked and rumored hardware specs and design details. In some ways, Apple’s new iPads will actually be more interesting than the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus: While the smartphone market is still growing rapidly and the iPhone continues to be disgustingly popular, iPad sales have started to slow over the last 12 months, meaning Apple might be attempt something a little more daring than just a thinner and lighter version of last year’s model.

Apple’s new iPad event set for October 16

Apple October 16 event invitation, iPad
Apple has sent out invites for a special event on October 16, where the company will almost certainly unveil this year’s updates to the iPad Air and iPad Mini. The event, which is being held on the Apple campus at a much smaller venue than the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus launch, will probably also feature some updates to Apple’s other product lines, such as the iMac and Apple TV. There’s an outside chance that we’ll see something new and crazy on October 16, like a TV set, but I think it’s unlikely, considering the Apple Watch’s recent debut.
