The iPad mini 3 was a bit of a disappointment because Apple really didn’t make any improvements other than adding Touch ID. Big changes could be in order for 2015, though, according to a video of an alleged 4th generation iPad mini rear shell that shows Apple’s smallest tablet is about to get an iPad Air redesign.

Watch the full hands-on video below.

The leaked shell looks a lot like the current iPad mini, but has a few elements borrowed from the iPad Air 2. The speaker grill at the bottom has been replaced with a single row of large holes and the mute switch has been removed.

The iPad Mini 4 is expected to get some serious internal upgrades as well, possibly including an A9 processor, more RAM, a better camera and a thinner design. Apple has not announced any details on a possible launch, but the updated iPads aren’t expected to hit stores until fall 2015.
