Image Leak Reveals New iPad Air Design?
Feast your eyes upon what we're told is the next-generation iPad Air.
Dutch blog onemorething.nl was the first outlet to obtain and publish the photos that supposedly depict the front casing for the refreshed iPad Air, which is expected by some analysts to launch in Q3 of 2014.
If the shots are legit, it should be noted that the front panel design reveals the LCD and cover glass assembled as one unit. This suggests that the LCD screen and its protective glass may be integrated into a single panel. The effect of this design, of course, would mean a thinner frame when compared to the current generation iPad Air.
Chemical bonding is old hat for iPhone designs, but this would be a whole new ballgame for the design of an iPad. All told, it's just the latest purported attribute coming to the refreshed iPad, along with an A8 processor and an optimized infrastructure to support iOS 8.
Unlike the speculation surrounding iPhone 6, it is not believed that Apple will raise price of its next-gen iPad Air models.
