Rumors also claimed that iPad Air 3 will sport a 9.7 inch screen display with 4K resolution or 2334×3112 resolution. This is better than the predecessor’s 1536×2048 pixel resolution. Other expected features and specs of the device are A9X processor, 2GB to 4GB RAM, improved cameras, fingerprint sensor, and longer battery life.
The iPad Air 3 is speculated to focus on entertainment and media functions making it superior than iPad Pro. Moreover, it will have improved sensors as well as new software features like Apple Pay thanks to iOS 9.
Amid the speculations of the powerful specs and features of the iPad Air 3, the tablet is rumored to be way cheaper than the new iPad Pro. However, there is no official confirmation from Apple yet, regarding the release date and features of the said device.
