Apple iPad Air 3 – Apple’s Best Tablet Yet?
Lately Apple is surrounded with rumors regarding new and upcoming devices but one reoccurring rumor is that the Cupertino based company is actually going to shut down the Air line and focus towards the 7.9 inch Mini, the two 9.7 inch and 12.9 inch Pro tablets, but recent reports are showing that Apple is actually working on developing a new iPad Air 3 and will launch it in the first quarter of 2017, in March to be exact. While the internet is buzzing with rumors and speculations about the upcoming iPad Air 3, Apple is keeping its mouth shut and not confirming any of the reports.
Regarding the hardware department, Apple will equip the tablet with only the best it has to offer starting with the powerful A9X processor and 2GB of RAM. What makes the processor so special is the fact that is has been developed by ARM, a company that’s known for taking powerful chipsets and making them compatible with smaller devices such as smartphones and tablets while still keeping the chipsets full speed intact. The iPad Air 3 is expected to feature Apple Pen support thus putting the tablet up to par with Microsoft’s Surface line. Furthermore, the tablet will feature a rather large 9.7 inch display that’s going to be accompanied by a 4K panel. Now onto the camera department, the new iPad Air 3 will ship with a 13MP rear camera which will feature LED flash.
Taking in consideration that the entry level iPad Air 2 is priced at $399 and that the upcoming iPad Air 3 will be significantly more powerful and will also bring a bunch of new features such as Apple Pen support, the tablet will be priced around $600, but that’s subjective to change since Apple has yet to confirm anything.
