It looks like that September 9 is going to be a big day full of many surprises.. According to a new report from DigiTimes, Apple's suppliers are now ramping up components production for a second generation iPad Air which is going to be "thinner, faster, lighter" and comes with Touch ID feature.
DigiTimes writes that touch panel makers TPK, GIS and other suppliers have now received orders for full-lamination units. Even though the iPad Air 2 should remain unchanged in terms of size and resolution, sources that spoke to DigiTimes expect a “thinner” device equipped with “an enhanced processor” and sporting ”improved fingerprint recognition” features.
The report also adds that Sharp, Japan Display and LG Display are seeing orders increase for the iPhone 6 screens. Should Apple stick to its release schedule, expect the next-generation iPad lineup to be unveiled at a separate media event in October.
