Since the Apple iPad Air 2 was released on Oct. 22, 2014, there hasn’t been much refreshes on the product. iPad fans have been eagerly waiting for the Cupertino tech giant to reveal some details and specs about the successor, Apple iPad Air 3. Up to now, rumours about the iPad Air 3 have regularly surfaced online and fans have no other choice but to rely on these rumours.

According to Tech Times, the Apple iPad Air 3 is expected to sport a 9.7-inch 4K display and will reportedly host the latest A10 processor from Apple. It will also be sleeker than its predecessor.

There is a possibility that the device will have a dual-camera setup. The primary camera could be of 8MP whereas the front-facing camera of 2.1MP. The primary camera may support LED flash.

A bigger and better battery, a highly-improved display and a 4GB RAM are also expected in the device. A much sharper resolution than the iPad Air 2 is anticipated in Apple iPad Air 3.

Some of the features that the device may come with include 3D Touch, fingerprint sensor, waterproof technology and four speakers. Apple will stick to its decision of not including the 3.5mm headphone jack in the device.

With the Apple iPad Air 3, Apple may introduce two new colour variants, namely, Rose Gold and Jet Black. There is no concrete information on the Apple iPad Air 3 release date. While some believe the device will be releases in March 2017, other say Apple may choose to end the Air line altogether, writes ValueWalk.

It is not known whether the iPad Air 3 will come with Apple Pencil support. Even if the device does support Apple Pencil, it won’t come free with the device. For now, users will have to wait till the first quarter of 2017 to fully understand if there will be an Apple iPad Air 3.
