iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3 accidentally revealed by iBooks ahead of launch

A premature release on Apple's iTunes store has revealed the official names of the company's next iPads: The iPad Air 2 and the iPad mini 3. The reveal comes as part of the company's iPad User Guide For iOS 8, which seems to have gone live a full day in advanced of Apple's iPad and Mac event.

The guide also reveals that both tablets will have Touch ID sensors in their Home buttons, along with Burst Mode for the iPad Air 2. The guide also confirms that Apple plans to launch iOS 8.1 in the very near future. We will be on the ground at Apple's Cupertino, California headquarters for the official reveal of the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3, along with a possible introduction of new iMacs.

Meanwhile, check out the upcoming iPads and let me know what you think!
