iPad Air upcoming model design renders

Overall, the slim body and an all-screen design of the 12.9inch tablet resembles immensely with the current iPad Air model.

On the top of the screen, there's a Touch ID button as Apple offered with the previous iPad model. Meanwhile, the speaker grills have been planted on both the top and the bottom of the display.

Moreover, the iPad is expected to bring a side-mounted switch, and a USB-C port is located at the bottom.

Apart from the similarities with its counterparts, some alterations are also expected to be seen on the gadget's design. 

The iPad Air's rear camera has been updated with a noticeable border around the lens and LED flash, in contrast to the current model which has a bare camera sensor at the back. 

The renders suggest that Apple is not planning a significant design overhaul for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, which is understandable considering the recent design updates to the iPad Air, including the all-screen display, Touch ID button, and flat edges.
