Apple has been totally silent about its iPad Air 3 release date and this has led many to believe that the company may be dropping its Air line. However, this has not stopped tech enthusiasts from speculating about the device's specs. Those who are still optimistic about the product, believe that it will come with an A9 chip, 12MP camera and three internal storage options.

Renowned analyst Ming-chi Kuo has stated that Apple is planning to launch a 10.5-inch iPad variant in 2017. This could very well be the iPad Air 3 and it may tag along with an iPad Pro 2 and another 9.7-inch iPad model. As always the case with Apple, fans are expecting some incredible features in the device.

As per HNGN, the tablet market has been suffering for a few years now and hence the Apple iPad Air 3 may be not priced at pocket-burning rates. The device may have a 9.7-inch display as well with a 2048X1536 resolution and 264ppi. Fans are also anticipating a four-speaker audio and full Apple support.

The faster A9 chip, as in the iPhone 6 and 6S will give the device an edge over others. It is likely that the iPad Air 3 will sport a 12MP camera. Other features may include Bluetooth 4.2, lightning ports, touch ID and fingerprint scanning technology. It is likely that the tablet will run on the updated iOS 10 operating system.

Some reports suggest that Apple is bringing changes to the hardware of iPad Air 3 and hence its release is getting delayed, writes International Business Times. The Cupertino-based tech giant is also reportedly focusing on its Pro line and will only make the Apple iPad Air 3 available sometime in the first quarter of 2017.

There is no way to verify these reports and fans can only expect Apple to release some information on the device. Stay tuned on GameNGuide for more updates on Apple iPad Air 3.
