Black 5 was the best looking iPhone, I really like my the Space Grey Air I just bought. I'll be flustered if the new one is significantly better. JB 7.1.2 Air for me. :cool:

I'd hope for 2GB, but I thought the iPhones would have that too.

I just got a 5S and I thought it would be cool to get TouchID on the iPad, but I never use passwords so I couldn't care less. I liked TouchID for unlock (faster than swipe), but it starting causing issues when on phone calls and it'd want a password to hang up. :/

Looking forward to it be lighter, and 1gb ram would be good.

I hold out hope they introduce the larger 12.9 version early to surprise people, I'll buy both:D

I don't think going thinner is the issue, as long as they make them easier to hold without them slipping out of our hands.

I just bought an iPad Air yesterday knowing a new one is eminent. I hope there is at least an announcement is the next 14 days (Apple return period).'

I'm hoping for 2GB, but wireless ac would be equally important.

They won't do that.

If the back of the case was a not slip material it would be easier to grip without hardly any pressure.
Also, it would not slip and slide over a smooth surface.

Apple won't do that.

If the rear of the case had any texture or shaping in the metal shell to allow fingers to get a slight purchase on the surface you would not have to worry about it slipping so much.

Apple won't do that.

In fact, if you gave anyone an instruction to make a tablet intended to be as easy to slip out of your hand or slip of a flat surface as possible, they would design the iPad Air.

The look of it, overrides anything else.

I would love to see iPad triple or quadruple in computing power. No need to make it thinner. Just beefier where it counts.

I'll ask for two things and I kind of expect one of them to be granted:

1. A BLACK iPad Air 2.
2. 2 Gigs of RAM.

Yeah, heavier and thicker please.
Why? I long for the day the iPad could be as thin as a paper. I use my iPad Mini instead of the iPad Air ONLY because it's way lighter and I can hold it with one hand for a LONG TIME without feeling any pain. Try doing that with an iPad Air...

I disagree with everyone wanting it thicker. If people want thicker, get a Surface.

Just keep doing what you're doing Apple. I will gladly welcome a thinner iPad Air 2.

+1 Actually as thin as the iPad Air is today it's all right with me. I just want it to be much more lighter.

Wait, I'm confused! :confused:

Do we mean lighter in weight or a lighter shade of Space Gray like the iPhone 5S to iPhone 6?

Personally, I'm very happy that Apple has had an obsession with light thin devices; I think the iPad Air and mini are both marvelous. But for me at least, they've reached an optimum thickness. While I wouldn't mind a thinner device, other priorities like battery life and durability are by now more important to me.
