In addition to launching the iPhone 6, Apple is also expected to launch the next-generation iPad Air or iPad Air 2 this year. A couple of alleged photos of the iPad Air 2 rear panel posted on Weibo show subtle changes in design.

While the next-generation iPad Air is expected to look much the same, a few changes include redesigned speaker grills that have been reduced to a single row on holes, and buttons that are more recessed into the iPad’s frame than before. The rear shells again show the presence of a second microphone beside the rear camera, which seems to be for noise cancellation as with the Continuity feature on iOS 8, users will be able to receive and make calls on their iPad.

Besides these, the iPad Air 2 is also expected to be thinner than before and feature the TouchID fingerprint scanner, a more powerful A8 processor and an 8-megapixel camera.
