This rumor started circulating in the cyber space after we got a sneak peek of the back casing of this gadget.

Tech reporters are quite sure that iPad Air 3 will be powered by the next generation iOS platform i.e. iOS 10. Therefore, both iOS 9 and iPad Air 3 is expected to release on the same date.
