Apple (NASDAQ: APPL), Inc., at the WWDC, was expected to announce some new additions to its hardware family. However, it all ended with some exciting upgrades to the iOS and Mac OS X. A few more reports suggested that the Cupertino giant will launch Apple iPad Air 2 running iOS 8, but now the launch is expected to happen in coming few months.
iPad Air 2 is expected to launch somewhere in the month of August or September. The latest addition is unarguably the most advance iPad Apple has ever produced. Rumors states that the new iPad Air 2 will house a desktop class 64-bit A8 processor driving all new ultra-Retina display. It is also expected to have an integrated screen design with never been seen 8MP rear camera.
Rumors also suggest that the new iPad Air 2 will do much more than just being a tablet. Analyst believes that the upcoming device will feature health tracking sensors to help users track their health. Although the much anticipated and awaited Apple iWatch is also going to house health tracking sensors, it is without any doubt that both of them will combine the results into the Health App, which is yet another exciting feature of the iOS 8.
Talking about some of the design innovation expected to land with this next generation iPad are the rectangular volume control buttons and power button moved to the lateral side of the edges. These changes also align with the rumored specs of the iPhone 6.
Apple did a lot for its developer community this time by introducing a new programming language called Swift. Swift, which was in development for no less than four years, is very easy to learn and deploy. Although seasoned Objective-C programmers may find it a piece of cake, new developers might see it difficult to learn. It is necessary to first master the Objective-C then moves onto to the Swift.
