However, the iPad Pro 9.7 was announced last March 2016, while this new Apple tablet may not be a laptop but it is more than simply an iPad Air 3 as stated by TechRadar.

The smart connector will enable the keyboard cover to drag the power from the iPad Air 3's battery.
Some reports also say that Apple is delaying the launch of the iPad Air 3 because of the tablets drop of sales in the market, and that is because of the several tablet-like phones surfacing these days. Apple could only be waiting for the best time to launch the iPad Air 3.
