Apple Leaks iPad Launch Models

In an unusual, and some would say suspicious PR-gaff, Apple accidentally leaked the details of their forthcoming iPad models ahead of tonight’s launch event.

Keen-eyed observers noticed that late last night Apple updated their iOS 8 user guide, and ‘accidentally’ included two new models: the iPad Air 2 and the iPad Mini 3.

Whilst the announcement of two new iPad models is not a surprise, the uncharacteristic leak of information 24 hours before the launch event most certainly is.

So surprising, in fact, that it has led to some commentators¬†questioning whether Apple had an ulterior motive, and actually released the information on purpose. The ‘leak’ coincided with the Nexus 6, Nexus 9 and Android Lollipop announcement from Apple’s arch-rival Google.

Whether or not the leak was intentional, the iOS 8 user guide included some clear details of the new models ahead of tonight’s launch event. Both the iPad Mini 3 and the iPad Air 2 have been revealed to have a Touch ID sensor and an upgraded iSight camera.
