Regular Tapscape readers are already up-to-speed on iPad Air with Touch ID , which will be Apple’s second-gen iteration of their popular fingerprint identification system. But should we expect more when Apple’s full-size tablet arrives in October?
“The iPad Air 2 is coming this Fall and pretty much everyone agree it will feature Touch ID,” we wrote back in July. “Beyond that, little is known…”
Edit. Make that little was known, because Tapscape has fresh dirt to dish on the iPad Air 2.
First off, it is believed that Apple’s iPad Air 2 is already rolling off production lines in China. Further, Tapscape has more details to dish on the company’s upcoming full-size tablet.
Specifically, the iPad Air 2 is expected to come with a new more effective anti-glare display, which should make it more usable in bright light environments (ie reading an ebook at the beach).
“You may soon be able to use your iPad in direct sunlight if Apple goes ahead with rumoured plans for an anti-glare screen,” writes the UK’s Daily Mail. “[S]ources believe the devices will have anti-reflective laminated displays to make it easier to use in bright light, and outside – compared to current, reflective models.”
For what it’s worth, Apple’s second-gen Retina iPad mini, which will probably get the same anti-glare display and Touch ID technology, has not entered mass production.
So, does an iPad Air 2 or Retina iPad mini with Touch ID and anti-glare display sound compelling to you? What more would you need?
