Apple "accidentally leaked" iPad Mini 3 and iPad Air 2 ahead of its official launch!

Apple is expected to announce its new iPad Air and iPad Mini models in October 17,2014 (Philippine Time) or October 16, 2014 (Cupertino Time) but before the official launch [tomorrow], Apple accidentally revealed the next iPad models via an e-book called iPad User Guide for iOS 8.1 in the iTunes Store.

The images show that the iPads are similar in design to their predecessors and have the familiar iOS 8 interface. The screenshots also show that both new tablets will include Touch ID sensors in the Home button. On the leaked guide, the next iPad Mini which is dubbed iPad Mini 3 is equipped with an iSight camera, as well as volume and power switches on the side, joining a nano-SIM tray. Another new feature for the iPad Air 2 which is confirmed by this leak is a new Burst Mode which was first introduced with the iPhone 5s. See image below.

Apple usually holds on tight to its product announcements. It fines companies $50 million for leaking secret information about its future products so this posting mistake is very unusual for the company.
