The iPad Air 2 is so far the last of its kind and saw a release in the year 2014.
However, it is time to think of why this year the iPad Air range received no new additions and what the next device is going to be like.
To be true, real iPad Air fans were a trifle disappointed when this year’s Apple events failed to show a new iPad Air contender September or October in 2015; the expectation and rumors of the new iPad Air kicked off immediately.
Now that we know that whatever we have been reading about the iPad Air 3 is just a bunch of rumors, let up round them up into one place; we never know which one of them might actually turn out to be an authentic leak.
To start with, the iPad Air 3 is going to be an iOS 10 device and might be seen sometime in March 2016.
Well let’s consider this statement as partly incorrect. The sources that said this probably forgot that iOS 10 technically does not come out as a preview version before June or July 2015 and will be rolled out as a stable version in September.
So the iPad Air 3, even if it does come out in March, will be featured with the latest version of iOS9.
If the company is keen on having it run on iOS 10, then do not expect to see it before September or October 2016.
The features of course, have been drawn up by many tech sites too. Some are of the view that the iPad Air 3 might get even thinner, with a smaller battery.
Let us not forget that iPad Air 2 is very thin as it is, and going any slimmer could make the device more vulnerable to damage perhaps? It is really a matter of concern, as with the passage of time, people seem to be getting more inclined to looks and might just be ready to compromise with performance.
Smaller battery units might eventually lead us to be plugged into the wall the whole time to manage battery drain.
We just hope that the performance of the device is better than before.
This has called for other theories of the build of the iPad Air 3 being that of 7000-series aluminium, like the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, so that bendgate issues are not encountered.
Color options include silver, space grey and gold. No comment about the rose gold color has been made yet.
Of course, the camera should be bumped up as well, preferably to 12MP and the front camera also improved to 2.1MP.
Under the hood, the A9 or above in terms of processors can be expected. Many have spoken in favor of the A9X, but the A10 so far has not been suggested.
