Touch ID 2

A new video published by TLDToday closely examines an iPad 6 dummy unit created around rumors and speculation. The video shows off some design changes and the notable addition of a Touch ID ring. At this point in time, there’s no official news on Apple’s plans to include Touch ID with the upcoming second-generation iPad Air, but it would definitely make sense.

In the video below, the iPad Air is compared to this rumored “iPad 6″ dummy showing very small changes between the two. At first glance, the dummy appears to be thinner than the current generation iPad Air, but as we’ve seen in the past these dummy units aren’t exactly 100 percent accurate…

The buttons on the dummy unit seem to be slightly recessed, speaker grills are a bit different, and the unit is actually missing a mute/rotation lock switch, but it’s impossible to tell if these are flaws of the mockup or an intentional design that was based off of rumored schematics. At the end of the day there’s not much different to see here, but the video provides a look at the small differences between the mockup and current iPad Air. Apple’s next generation iPad Air is expected to be released later this year.

  3. What the heck is wrong with that guys jaw?

    Also, maybe I missed it but how could he show a model of the new iPad that is completely missing a rotation lock button, and then not even mention it, despite the close-up video of the area where the button would be?

    If the new iPads don’t have that button, they will definitely lose a significant number of people like me who use it about a hundred times a day. I’m not sure the iPad would even be *usable* without a rotation lock button.

      This dude is an excellent reviewer on YouTube, and does this all the time.
      For those that get the product(s), create the films, cut and edit them–it’s not about the clothes, man!

    Battery maybe cut to make it thinner since iPad Air’s battery life exceeds expectation by far
