Apple typically reveals its new tablets in October, so there's a strong chance we'll be seeing an updated edition of the iPad Air on Oct. 16.
Judging by the rumors and reports that have been floating around the web, it seems like the next iPad iteration will look almost identical to Apple's current iPad Air.
The biggest changes will be under-the-hood improvements, such as the addition of a new Apple-made processor, and Touch ID in the home button.
Here's a look at everything we know about the next iPad Air ahead of Apple's big event.
The next iPad may be even thinner than the current iPad Air.
The iPad Air is already pretty thin, but the second-generation model may be even slimmer. Specifically, it's rumored to be 0.5mm thinner than the model Apple sells today.
We'll probably see Touch ID in the home button.
It seems likely that Apple will put the Touch ID fingerprint sensor it introduced on the iPhone 5s in its new line of iPads. Various leaks from the past few months have made this claim, including a recent report from French blog Nowhereelse.fr. This is the same blog that leaked a ton of photos of the iPhone 6 before it was released, which turned out to be accurate.
And it'll likely be available in gold, too.
Apple is likely to add a gold color option to its like of iPads just like it has done with the iPhone. Bloomberg reported this earlier in October, saying it spoke with three people familiar with Apple's plans. KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who is probably the most accurate Apple analyst out there, also predicts the same.
