iPad Air 3 Release Date, Specs, Features, News & Update: Device Confirmed Last ‘Air’ Tablet? Scratch Resistant, Oleophobic Coating, 4K Display, More
Recent reports and rumors about the iPad Air 3 claim that the device will arrive early next year, specifically in March 2017. The Apple's iPad Air 3 is expected to come with slimmer and sleeker design compared to its predecessors. More color options will be available for users and it might also have borrowed camera features from iPhone 7 such as the dual-lens, high-definition 4K screen display, 3D Touch and Apple Pencil support.
According to a report from MacWorld, the iPad Air 3 might be the last in the Air line. Though there have been no official confirmations made by Apple, that is what critics strongly believe. Maybe, it's because of the delayed release of the device.
Some reports say the iPad Air 3 or other tablets that would be launched by Apple would not do well in the market because a lot of consumers nowadays prefer tablet-like phones. Some users also say that the iPad Air 3 price, including other Apple products, is too high so they just prefer cheaper phablets that can do several things more than an ordinary tablet can.
The iPad Air 3 is considered as the regeneration of iPad Mini that features a 9.7-inch IPS LCD display. The iPad Air 3 might also include a scratch resistant glass with an oleo phobic coating. The previous iPad mini model has a smaller display and no scratch-resistant glass feature on the display.
Moreover, the iPad Air 3 might also sport an A9 Chip with 1.3 Dual-core processor, along with 1GB of RAM. On the other hand, the previous model of iPad mini works with the features of Apple A5 Chip with a 1.0GHz Dual-core processor, along with a 512MB of RAM, which some tech enthusiasts believe is not that impressive. Apple is surely looking for a way to make the iPad Air 3 specs as advanced as possible to compete with other giant tech companies in the market such as Samsung.
