iPad Air 2 and mini 3 cases easy, if size unchanged

By Peter Chubb - Oct 16, 2014

If Apple were to make a few tweaks to the dimensions of its iPad Air 2 and mini 3, then this would be a huge nightmare for case makers. Having said that, it is obvious purchasing iPad Air 2 and mini 3 cases will be easy as the size will be unchanged. Apple already has the tablets pretty thin as they are, and so will not feel the need to reduce it in size further.

We know that Apple likes to change the size of their products every now and again, which they did so last year with the introduction of the iPad Air 2, although the 2nd-gen mini was slightly thicker because of its new Retina display. If you fear that Apple could make a change once again, then a recently leaked image should help curb your fears.

There was also the fear that case makers would have to update the design of their iPad Air and mini cases because leaked images seemed to show the mute switch had gone. However, you can clearly see in Apple’s leaked image above the mute switch is still there.

This is great news for those of you who currently own the Air or mini Retina, as that means when you upgrade to the iPad Air 2 or mini 3 you do no have to part with your case, especially as some of them can cost a bit, such as the Defender Series Case at almost $100.

Are you pleased Apple will stick with the same design of the new iPads today?
