Apple News: Possible new iPad Air photos leaked

Alleged screenshots of a new iPhone 6 has been getting most of the attention lately, but the iPad Air was feeling left out! Now, thanks to AppleInsider.com's translation of the Netherland's OneMoreThing.nl rumor site, the iPad Air gets to join in the speculation game! I love my iPad Air, but as remarkably thin as it is, apparently it could be thinner, if the glass and LCD panel were bonded together. That appears to be Apple's next plan, if the photos are to be believed.

Next iPad Air?

The screen of the next iPad Air would be harder to replace, if the rumors are true, but that's rarely been a concern for Apple. The next iPad Air could be thinner, or Apple could use the extra space for a larger battery. They also presumably need to make room for a fingerprint reader to bring Touch ID to the iPad line. Apple would likely want to avoid the scenario they had when the iPad 3 was slightly thicker than the iPad 2, instead of the same or thinner.

Of course, this is all speculation, but the parts seem authentic. Still, it's not clear that the young lady in the upper left corner of the photos, wearing a skirt and sandals is conforming to (Apple supplier) Foxconn's dress code!
