Apple fans were expecting the next generation iPad i.e. iPad Air 3 this year. However, they may be a little disheartened to know that the Cupertino giant is planning to postpone the release of the iPad Air 3 till next year. Instead of iPad Air 3 we might get to see iPad Pro this year.
Both iPad Pro and iPad Air 3 were launched by Apple in the same time last month. However, if we are to believe in the latest rumor, then Apple is planning to release these products one by one. Thereafter, in the first quarter of 2016, iPad Air 3 will be released. However, we have not heard any official confirmation about the release date of these two products.
According to analyst Liaoxian Yi, renowned analyst of Fubon Bank Apple is planning to release its two tablets one after the other as releasing both at the same time may affect the sale of the products. This has prompted Apple to release iPad Pro first by October, 2015 and thereafter launch iPad Air 3 in spring, 2016.
iPad Air 3 will be of the same size as its predecessor i.e. it will have a 9.7 inch display. This time the resolution of the screen of this gadget is going to far better. The 4K screen will come with 2334 x 3112 pixels and 401ppi pixel density. Thereby, promising better picture quality in comparison to the previous one. iPad Air 3 will be powered by the most advanced A9X chipset along with 4GB RAM. As far as its battery is concerned there are chances that iPad Air 3 would not get such a powerful 7340mAh battery as iPad Air 2.
Apple is not compromising with the camera features of the tablet. It will come with a 8MP primary camera and 2.1MP secondary camera. And three variants of the product will be available with different storage capacity i.e. 16GB, 64GB and 128GB. We are not really sure whether this tablet will be resistant to water and dust, as none of the Apple products are resistant to water and dust excepting Apple smartwatch.
This gadget will be about 5mm thick, which is a lot less than its competitor Samsung Galaxy Tab S2, which comes with a thickness of 8.0 mm. As far as the price of this product is concerned it will be more or less the same as iPad Air 2. So we are expecting that the iPad Air 3 with 16GB storage capacity will be priced around £400 and the Wifi and cellular variant with storage capacity of 128GB will be around £700.
Apple is rumored to preinstall some new apps in its upcoming iPad Air 3 version. Some of the rumored apps are KIK, WhatsApp, Facebook and more. In simpler words you will be able to do KIK Login Online from your brand new iPad Air 3 this year for sure!
