Apple's full size iPad series was and always has been one of the most desirable tablet in the market today . The Apple tablet series provided excellent battery life and thanks to its 4.3 aspect ratio , it was more suitable for people who do alot of internet browsing and mobile gaming . but after 5 generations of iPads , the largest update to the marque so far is said to happen on the 16th of October when Apple is said to anounce the iPad Air 2 . The Apple iPad Air 2 , unlike the previous iPad , is said to be 0.5mm thinner so the official thickness will be 7.0 mm .The new iPad will also feature a new display philosophy with the display panel fused together to form a thin laminate which wasn't available in previous generations .The Mute button , which was available on the side of previous iPad's will be replaced due to the new thickness and the volume rockers are said to be more recessed as well . The tablet will also feature the new 64Bit Apple A8 processor and it will have 2GB of RAM . The tablet is also said to feature a 8mp rear camera derived from the 4S with a similar lens arrangement . The tablet will also come with other first time features such as Touch-ID fingerprint scanner , NFC for Apple Pay and a mono speaker that will replace the dual speaker arrangement in the older version . Storage options are rumored to exclude the 16GB variant (which might mean that the iPad 4 will be the only large screen 16GB iPad version that will be available) and therefore the new options for the Air 2 will be 32, 64 and 128GB . Pricing for the tablet is unknown .
