Mockups show some slight changes to Apple's flagship tablet

All of the attention on Apple’s next generation iOS devices has been focused on the iPhone 6, which is supposed to be available in both 4.7” and 5.5” screen sizes.
 
However, Apple is gearing up for a refresh of its iPad Air and iPad mini tablet families as well this fall. Not to be left out of the leaking game, Nowhereelse.fr claims to have gotten its hands on some unfinished mockups of the second generation iPad Air.

 
The look is quite familiar for those that have handled Apple’s flagship tablet, but this new model included Touch ID (introduced last year with the iPhone 5S). Other notable changed include a redesigned layout for the bottom-mounted speaker grilles and recessed buttons for the power and volume controls. That last point is seen a plus for those that routinely use the device in landscape mode and find themselves hitting the buttons by mistake in their current, “raised” placement.

 
A final note is the round hole that is positioned where the Orientation Lock/Mute button is usually placed. Mac Rumors explains that peculiarity, stating, “Unfinished [prototype] and mockup parts sometimes feature these pilot holes to guide machining of the final hole.”
