iPad Air 2 Part Leaks Point to A8X Chip, 2GB RAM & Touch ID

Dummy leaks by Vietnamese blog Tinhte.vn

Ahead of next Thursday’s Apple event, a newly leaked logic board claimed to be from a 2014 iPad Air purports to show an A8X processor, as well as an Elpida RAM module with 2 gigabytes of memory and Touch ID.

The new image published by Apple.club.tw seems to point towards 2GB of RAM for the device. Though the image of the RAM on the logic board is low resolution and fuzzy, enhancing the contrast and the brightness reveals a bit of information about the numbers on the chip.

Long rumored for the 2014 iPad update, these new images seem to confirm that Touch ID will be making its way to Apple’s tablet line for the first time. Above, you can see an image of the iPad’s Home button with the stainless steel detection ring.

Apple is planning to introduce a second-generation iPad Air in October, at a media event that will be held on October 16.
