Yesterday, Apple unveiled the new iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3. The 9.7-inch tablet comes with a faster processor, barometer measuring motion coprocessor, and Touch ID. It is 18 percent thinner than its predecessor and now comes in gold. The iPad mini 3 only received one major update in that it also now features Touch ID.
Apple also announced that the new tablets would be available for preorder today. No other information was given. However, many of us assumed that Apple would begin preorders at 12:01 a.m., just like it always does.
