Where’s the iPad Air 2? And new iPad mini?

Apple iPad

Apple is done announcing new products for this year, and while they unveiled a number of new things (and entered 4 new markets), we can’t but wonder – where are the new iPads?

It has been suggested multiple times that iPad Air 2 will be announced alongside the new iPhone 6. As we know, that hasn’t happened and we’ll likely have to wait for the next time Cook & Co. decide to gather representatives of the media to share the good news.

The next iPad and iPad Mini will likely integrated the Touch ID sensor, allowing its future owners to access secure environments with nothing but their finger. We would expect that with the new mobile payments service, Apple would be eager to launch as many new products as possible that support the service with biometric security…

So we’re left wondering when the iPad Air 2 will launch. Chances are that will happen either close to the end of Q1 2015 or at the beginning of Q2. Though you never know. Perhaps Cupertino boys (and girls) stage a surprise event and launch the new, Touch ID-enabled iPads just in time for CES in Las Vegas. That could be a neat way to steal the show, right? 😉
