“Apple’s iTunes Store has just made a little bit of a slip-up (and with perfect uncanny timing): screenshots for the iOS 8.1 iPad user guide have just appeared within iBooks and include Apple’s upcoming iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3,” Mark Gurman reports for 9to5Mac. “Of course, Apple will be formally debuting these devices tomorrow.”
“The screenshots confirm that both new tablets will include nearly identical designs to their predecessors and the addition of Touch ID sensors in the Home button,” Gurman reports. “Another new feature confirmed by this leak is a new Burst Mode (first introduced with the iPhone 5s) for the iPad Air 2.”
Gurman reports, “Of course, the presence of this user guide means iOS 8.1 (with Apple Pay) is likely to drop tomorrow, too.”

MacDailyNews Take: The lack of attention to detail at the Steve-less Apple is concerning.
At this point, we have to ask: Are there too many post-Steve Apple employees screwing up things they simply shouldn’t be screwing up? Or are even seasoned Apple employees just not paying close enough attention to the details? (Two very recent examples: Apple’s live stream mess for its most important event in years and the iOS 8.0.1 clown show.)
The details matter, Apple. We Apple customers expect it. Pay closer attention lest you squander your company’s hard-earned reputation.
