The iPad Air 3 is long due. The 2015 lineup did not find a place for the much awaited third generation iPad Air because Apple wanted to focus on the iPad Pro. Experts believe that it is the right time for Apple to roll out the iPad Air 3 and many are betting in favor of an announcement in March. That would perhaps be followed up with a midyear release.
If educated speculations are to be believed then the iPad Air 3 would be rolled out with a 9.7-inch 4K display, a fascinating screen resolution of 2334 x 3112 pixels and a pixel density of 401 ppi. While Apple rolled out its 3D feature last year, many had erstwhile believed that iPad Air 3 will not have such a feature. Now it seems Apple is considering going for it and you can expect the iPad Air 3 to get some substantial leverage over Mini 4, which clearly has its phenomenally growing fan base.
Apple has been working with a few chipsets from Intel that would provide some significant boost to the processing power of its upcoming devices. Intel has had a problem with some of its deadlines and that has also affected Apple’s plans with its new product launches. However, all such missed deadlines and failed expectations seem to be a thing of 2015. If sources in the supply chain and at manufacturing backyards are to be believed then Intel has delivered its impending chips and Apple has begun work to roll out more than half a dozen new gadgets this year.
The iPad Air 3 will be slimmer and lighter. It would feature the A9X with a much more powerful chipset than its predecessor. It will have more memory and a much better camera. The 3D Touch interface is debatable to an extent because many say that Apple would strictly confine such features to their phones and watches. It is quite difficult to inculcate such complicated features on larger screens when the interface is much broader in every sense of the term.
While we can only speculate about the features and specs, it is eventually up to Apple and given the past records of the company, it may under deliver or pleasantly surprise us all. Apple fans and for consumers at large, one would hope that it is the latter.
