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
, 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,
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
(introduced last year with the
). 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.
explains that peculiarity, stating, “Unfinished [prototype] and mockup parts sometimes feature these pilot holes to guide machining of the final hole.”

Also, I forgot to add -
"This was over at "everyone uses Android tablets landscape only, iPads both ways."
I don't know who said that or why you would think it, but it's not at all true. I use my Gpad in portrait primarily. I pretty much only go landscape when watching video.

At that size, people use everything primarily portrait, including 16:9 tablets. Most phones are 16:9 too (the iPhone is even thinner!). That wasn't what I was talking about, but you're right, I didn't specify that.

OK, but I had a 10 inch 2560x1600 Nexus 10 for a while and used it that way too. Not everyone uses everything exactly like you. Personal preference.
