The rumored Apple iPad Air 3 hasn’t been unveiled neither at WWDC event nor at the September event, but speculations suggest that the company will release the tablet in March 2017. Apple has dropped the price of the current iPad Air 2 and fans were expecting the arrival of the successor this fall, alongside the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, and since that didn’t happened, there were many disappointed fans.
The iPad Pro line is very important for Apple, but it comes with a hefty price tag that starts at around $800, and fans prefer a cheaper alternative, such the Air line, and the current iPad 2, which is two years old, has been discounted by the US-based sellers, as the 128GB variant in Space Grey costs now $449.99, down from $699.99. However, the iPad Air 2 is obsolete and fans are waiting for a successor as soon as possible, but this will not happen until next year, because there are low chances to be unveiled by the end of 2016.
The Apple iPad Air 3 will most likely be released in March 2017 and will feature a 7000-series aluminum body which will make it thinner and lighter compared to previous iPads. Also, the device will have a Smart connector, more RAM, an A10 chip, a 12MP camera with True Tone flash and it will support 3D Touch technology. Most likely, the 3.5mm earphone jack will be removed, following in the footsteps of the iPhone 7.
Likewise its predecessor, the Air 3 will arrive in a 9.7-inch frame and it’s expected to support the same resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels. As we were saying, the Air 2 has old specs, which means that the A8X triple-core 1.5 GHz Typhoon is clearly outperformed by Apple’s newer processors and this is why the Air 3 is needed on the market, to keep up the pace with the latest changes in matter of innovations.
