What next we can expect from now iPad Air 2 and iPhone 6 when it comes to hardware specs. Well both these two products are about to announce in late Q3 of 2014

The follow-up to last year’s iPad Air should arrive late in the third-quarter with both a new processor and the Touch ID fingerprint sensor Apple built for the iPhone 5s says one analyst with a pretty solid track record of product predictions.

If you had to guess how Apple will build a new iPad model based on the current iPad Air, surely a new processor would be part of your thoughts. That’s what Apple intends to do, says one analyst with a relatively good track record on figuring out Apple’s next product moves. The iPad Air 2 will use a new A8 chip and include the Touch ID fingerprint reader, according to KGI analystMing-Chi Kuo.

 

Apple Insider took a peek at Kuo’s most recent research note for Apple, which includes severaleducated guesses. Kuo expects a late third-quarter launch for the iPad Air 2 and thinks that TSMC will build the new A8 chip for Apple, which would take business away from Samsung.

TSMC is reportedly already building the yet-unannounced A8 chips for Apple, which makes sense from a timing perspective: Apple will likely need millions of the chips for multiple products in the next few months, including the next iPhone and iPad mini with retina display. In fact, Kuo suspects that a new iPad mini will see the same upgrades as the iPad Air 2, including touch ID support.

As far as that rumored 12.9-inch iPad, Kuo thinks Apple is working on it but doesn’t expect to see a product launch until next year.
