Apple’s unveiling of its new iPad lineup is set to take place in less than 24 hours, but someone at Apple HQ just accidentally leaked some of the biggest details, including the names of Apple’s newest tablets.

Apple updated its iOS 8 user guide this morning with photos for the new ‘iPad Air 2’ and ‘iPad mini 3.’ The actual iBook contains no information about the new devices, but preview images for the iPad User Guide For iOS 8 on contains references to the addition of Touch ID and a Burst Mode for the Camera.


It appears that Apple will bring a numbering scheme back to iPad names, after ditching the process last year with the release of the iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina display.

Other new features on the iPad Air 2 are expected to include an A8X processor with 2GB of RAM, Apple Pay, improved camera, anti-reflection coating, and a slightly thinner design. Full details of the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 will be revealed tomorrow at a press event on Apple’s campus in Cupertino at 10AM PT.
