A set of leaked photos of Apple's next-generation iPad Air 2 have surfaced online this week.

Posted on Chinese site Weibo, the photos are said to show the rear shell of the next iPad, which is expected to be launched alongside the iPad mini 3 in October this year.

Among the tweaks seen in the photos, the iPad Air 2 will allegedly increase the size of the speaker outlets but rearrange them into a single row instead of the double row found on the current Air and the rear microphone will move closer to the iSight camera.

Apple Insider reported that the newly leaked metal rear shell is almost identical to the dummy model of the device which surface in June. The dummy iPad Air 2 showed off a Touch ID home button for the tablet, along with recessed volume buttons and a re-designed speaker grille.

Similar to the mock-up, the latest photos of the purported iPad Air 2 shell suggest there is no "mute/orientation lock" toggle switch, which is found on the current iPad and iPhone models.

Some earlier reports claimed that the device is expected have a 9.7-inch Retina LCD display with a resolution of 2048x1536 pixels. Reports also said that Apple is not likely to make big changes to the new iPad model's design this year, but the device could feature an 8MP rear camera, compared to the 5MP camera found in the current version of the device.

The new iPad Air could also feature a faster A8 processor, which is expected to improve the tablet's performance, battery life and the Touch ID fingerprint sensor.
