The hype about Apple gets stronger as the iPad Air 2 aims a possible launch on Oct. 16. Unnamed sources told Re/code that the event rolled back to an earlier schedule instead of Oct. 21. The iPad Mini 3, along with the new lineup of Retina iMacs, are also expected to launch on the same event.

The iPad Air 2 is also called the iPad 6.

According to The Michael Report sources, the Cupertino-based tech giant is already producing the new iPads at a large scale, which means the information they have could be the exact iPad Air 2.

The new iPads were reported to be manufactured by many companies, including TPK, GIS, Sharp, Samsung and LG.

We have reported on the possible specs of the iPad Air 2, and how the upcoming flagship tablet fares with its predecessor. So far, the iPad Air 2 is known to sport the 9.7-inch Retina Display, anti-reflective screen coating, 8 MP rear and 1.5 MP front cameras, iOS 8 support (which is pretty obvious), A8 processor chip, twice the RAM of the original iPad Air, Touch ID, four storage options (16GB, 32GB, 64 GB and 128 GB) and a thinner and lighter physique.

The iPad Air 2 was also reported to come in iPhone-like colors--including a gold version.

Physically, Apple was said to brand the new iPads as the thinnest tablets ever created. The Michael Report noted that the iPad Air 2 is about 0.5 mm thinner than its predecessor. In addition, the speakers will take a single row instead of two, making the diameters of the holes larger. The volume controls are "slightly more recessed." The microphones have been moved to the top of the iPad Air.

Things noted for possible omission are the mute and vibration switch, as well as the 16GB storage option (as opposed to previous rumors).

Meanwhile, NDTV added that Apple might also be launching the much-awaited OS X Yosemite on the 16th. Mashable reported that Apple has issued the second GM candidate for the said operating system, alongside the second iOS 8.1 beta for developers. Rumors also suggest that the iOS 8.1 and Apple Pay will arrive on Oct. 20.

As for the pricing, Christian Post noted that the iPad Air 2 could start at $500. Expert Reviews said it could come around $650.

We can only wait until Apple unwraps the real deal.
