20% thinner. 0.8 pounds.
This is all that matters. /s

Leaving the jokes aside, my money is on a new 4K Retina Display.
The A9X could power it.

Preferably one that doesn't vibrate at even moderate volume. The Air 2's excessive vibration was a deal breaker for me, so I decided to stick with the original Air. Apple chose thinness over user experience. Thinness for the sake of thinness is just silly.

For some of the apps I use, I really like the vibration of the chassis, i.e. games. However, I think with all the complaints, they were certainly fix that in the next gen. It may be quieter, but they will address that.

If it doesn't support safari extensions (like ublock) and have a larger screen, I'm getting off the iPad wagon.

I'm hoping that Apple will acknowledge the 'touch' issues with the iPad Air 2 and get us a fix, not just fix it with a new iPad Air 3. I loved my iPad 2 for a very long time, but this new iPad Air 2 gives me fits! Apple really needs to address these issues before inventing new stuff to sell.

I 100% agree. If the next gen still vibrates, I will lose faith in Apple. Thinnovation is a one trick pony that is causing issues.

4k would have to mean it go to a 16:9 aspect ratio and meh I like the 4:3 on tablets imo. Plus that would require a bigger battery and make the iPad bigger which I think Apple won't do .

High res screen ? The iPad retina display is already a sub 2k screen .... A sub 4k screen will just be a bad thing considering Apple desire to keep it slim . Requires a bigger battery and thus make it thicker . Idk why people think the retina display is bad as it is now and want a "HD retina display" ...it's sub QHD or sub 2k display is fantastic already



Plus we don't need sub 4k displays ....I think QHD is overkill for mobile displays

I just hope everything that ipad air 2 minus the vibration and the distorted screen. Keep the thinness and weight I don't care as long as there is no vibration or distortion.

Right now the only thing hardware wise I want to see from my next iPad is depth sensitivity by touch and weight decrease.

The software side is much much longer...

I agree if anything they should shrink the battery with the power gains they make with the A9x hardware.

The iPad is still fairly heavy to comfortably hold.

I'd Like to see the screen improve to Quad HD but of course to do that and maintain battery life may be an issue with Apple's obsession with making things thinner and lighter.

I'm looking forward most of all to the posts from the usual suspects who despite their comments about iPad Air 2 and how it's the "next longevity model" will suddenly rush out and upgrade anyway, telling us all that the "iPad Air 3 is what the iPad Air 2 should have been." :rolleyes:

I know it will not happen, but an OLED screen would be awesome.
That's the next logical step. Once you've used an OLED device is tough to look at an LCD screen no matter how nice it looks. Samsung leads the way with Super AMOLED screens.

Agreed. Perfect blacks are so undervalued. I understand a phone using a LED screen b.c of the size, but on a device that tons of people use for media consumption OLED is the way to go.

I have the original Sony PS Vita which has an S-AMOLED screen. The updated model uses an LCD screen. All the reviews say pretty much say the same thing. The LCD screen looks nice but is nowhere near as nice as the S-AMOLED screen.

I'm waiting for the Samsung Galaxy S-2 tablet which supposedly will have a 4:3 screen and metal case.

Agreed, id give back a little weight/ heft to have better speakers and performance.

Faster SoC and maybe a slight redesign.

I hope there are some redesigns to fixe the hardware issues with the Air 2. I also hope they improve the screen tech to make it a Retina HD display with better contrast.

What you say a 4K Retina Display is? Double the current resolution? I don't see them using a new resolution that is hard for developers to scale.

I don't see a 4k display happening any time soon. There is not that large of a market for 4k, and apple always adopts new technology last. The iMac are different b.c those appeal to the crowd that actually benefits from a higher resolution.
