The iPad Air 2 in question has been on the cards for a while, with rumors of the device going back throughout this year, especially in the last few months. The device is slated to be a much more modern version of the iPad Air, sporting some of the very same features currently available on the iPhone 6. You could say that the newest iPad Air brings the range up to date with Apple’s current product range, which started with the iPhone 6.
On the subject of new Apple product ranges, another rumor has it that the upcoming Apple event will also see the emergence of an all-new version of the iMac, this one sporting the characteristic Apple Retina display built in as the main screen.
The iMac currently stands as the flagship desktop computer made by Apple, featuring a single unit with the hardware, screen and disc drive all built into one stand up ‘monitor’. The inclusion of the retina display could also bring the iMac into the forefront of the current 4k, or even 5k resolution craze, with rumors of Apple’s development of an ultra resolution screen also abundant.
