Devices from Apple Inc always lead to excitement among users, not just when they are released, but even at the development stages. iPads were notably missing in the announcements from Apple Inc for some time, but it is rumored that the company is working on the next gen iPad Air 3 tablet, which is planned to be the successor of iPad Air 2.
It has been two years since Apple Inc released their iPad Air 2 model, and the iPad line has not been refreshed until now. This has surprised both consumers and experts alike, but Apple Inc is still silent about the release of iPad Air 3. Let us look into the rumored specs and features of the iPad Air 3.
It is rumored that the iPad Air 3 will have a 9.7-inch display with 4K resolution support. The device will be powered by the A10 processor, and will be just 5 mm thick, which is sleeker than iPad Air 2.
Some of the experts also believe that the tablet will sport an 8 megapixel primary camera with LED flash and a secondary camera of 2.1 megapixels. It is also rumored that the device will offer 4 GB of RAM and a bigger battery, when compared to the previous iPad models from Apple.
The iPad Air 3 device may support 3D touch, which is a pressure sensitive technology that was introduced in the iPhone 6s. It is also expected that the device could be waterproof and would offer fingerprint sensor.
A leaked image of the iPad device suggests that it has four speakers instead of the two speakers in the previous models. Two speakers will be placed on the top and two will be on the bottom of the device. It is also rumored that Apple may introduce the Rose Gold and Jet Black colors for iPad Air 3 model. iPad Air 2 was not available in these two colors.
It is hoped that the iPad Air 3 will debut in March 2017 and will end the long wait of the users. Yet again, some of the insider reports suggest that this device might never be released at all, as it has been too long since Apple Inc introduced the previous iPad Air models. This could also mean that we might get a new iPad branding instead of iPad Air 3.
