The Apple iPad 2 has only just been launched by Apple but that does not stop its dedicated customers from speculating on what the next offering from Apple-the iPad Air 3-will be bringing to the table. So, here is a list of some rumored features and some much-desired features of the device.
A bigger and better screen never goes amiss
The iPad Air 2 has a pretty big screen at 9.7 inches but even then the fans have been clamoring for a bigger screen for the iPad Air 3 which would make it even more suitable for both work and entertainment purposes. However this would reduce portability and also reduce the battery life of the device. Apart from the increase in size customers are also expecting that Apple will improve the screen quality of the iPad Air 3 so that it has a better resolution display along with more pixels per inch, thus providing a great visual experience.
A better and faster processing unit
A new device generally always comes with a new chipset and a new or an improved processor. And the same is expected of the iPad 3. Although the iPad Air 2 has a sufficiently fast processor which is able to run any app in the current market with ease, we still expect that the iPad Air 3 will be coming with a better and faster processor which should be much more energy efficient than the current one.
A better and enhanced camera
All of Apple’s products have been well known for their superior camera quality and a better camera on the iPad Air 3 will certainly make it even more appealing to customers. Apple should also bring some of the features of the iPhone 5 to the Air 3 such as the True Tone LED flash and some other features to make the camera on the iPad Air 3 a really great one.
More RAM for a better and smoother experience
Customers are hoping that Apple will increase the amount of RAM on the iPad Air 3 from the 2 GB on the Air 2 for a faster and smoother experience. Some sources have said that Apple is planning on doubling the amount of RAM on the Air 3 to 4 GB as compared to the 2 GB onboard its predecessor.
A slimmer and more stylish Air 3
The Air 2 is an astonishingly slim tablet as it stands at a mere 6.1mm thickness but that does not stop buyers from wanting an even slimmer yet sturdier Air 3 from Apple.
Facial recognition feature
This would a great addition to the Air 3 as it would make the tablet feel futuristic and would give a premium feel to it. The device could use facial recognition to unlock the device apart from using the feature in the camera application of the device to detect and tag individuals
Introducing live multitasking
One major drawback of the Air 2 is the lack of Live multitasking feature and fans worldwide are hoping that the Air 3 comes with this multitasking feature. With live multitasking users can use a number of apps at the same time thus saving time and also making working more efficient
Adding an external memory card slot
The lack of an external memory card slot has been a major drawback for all devices from Apple and it is very unlikely that that will change with the iPad Air 3. However if the external memory slot is added then it will be a game changer for Apple and will help to significantly improve the Air 3.
Adding wireless charging
Wireless charging is still at a very juvenile stage and currently does not offer much in the way of advantages over wired charging. However if Apple can improve the feature and incorporate it in the Air 3 then it would a great technological leap from the current devices in the market
More price options
Sources have said that the new iPad Air 3 will be priced at pretty much the same price point as its predecessor. However, Apple would do well to bring a cheaper version of its tablet to the market make the tablet available to a wider range of consumers.
These were some of the features and specifications which many consumers want from Apple’s next tablet offering and it will certainly be interesting to see which one are included and which ones do not make it to the actual device.
