Report: iPad Air 2 starts production this month with 8MP camera, A8 chip

Updated

Apple will begin producing displays for the new iPad Air this month, and other components for the device next month, Korean site ET News reports. The new device will reportedly feature an 8MP rear camera — a bump up from the current 5MP camera — and an improved processor, expected to be the A8 chip. It’s noted that the newest iPad Air will feature the same screen resolution and overall design as the previous Air. There’s no mention of Touch ID in the new report, though many expect Apple’s fingerprint scanner to be included. [via 9to5Mac]
