iPad Air 2 parts slip out

Apple’s forthcoming iPad Air 2 is slowly starting to reveal itself, after a French site got hold of a series of images showing the tablet’s key internal components.

The images show off the Apple slate’s GPS antenna, microphone and Wi–Fi module. The GPS unit appears to be a touch larger than the one found in the current iPad Air, which was launched late last year.

These leaks come a week after images of the tablet’s rear shell also tipped up online. They showed off Apple’s plans for a rejigged speaker grille and, perhaps more excitingly for design fans, a new gold look. This will likely match the ‘champagne’ iPhone 5s model.

There’s no word yet on an exact launch date for the iPad Air 2. However, Apple has previously launched its new iPad range in October, a month or so after it’s pulled the wrappers off of its new iPhone.

With the iPhone 6 due to land on 9 September, it’s safe to assume the iPad Air 2 will arrive a few weeks later. The second generation of Apple’s super slim tablet is due to arrive alongside a rejigged iPad mini and, hopefully, the company’s much–hyped Apple Watch.
