Despite Apple being tight-mouth about the details of its upcoming tablet, reports point out that the iPad Air 3 might be coming out as an entry-level device. The device is expected to sport a killer A10 processor and a 64GB internal storage.
Apple seems to be manufacturing a mid-range tablet this time with iPad Air 3 ringing the bell. Although the Cupertino-giant has not confirmed yet that it is indeed releasing such device soon, many believe that there is a launch for iPad Air 3 coming up in the next months.
According to some reports, Apple might opt for a first quarter release next year. This remains to be unverified until now.
As for the specifications of the tablet, iPad Air 3 is rumored to run an A10 processor with 64GB of internal storage following iPhone 7's footsteps. It was also in the loop that the device might sport an AMOLED display with 2048 x 1538-pixel resolution.
Considering however that iPad Air 3 will be a mid-range tablet, it is far from truth that it will run in these killer specs.
Meanwhile, the iPad Air 3 is also expected to get a support from Apple Pencil which might be sold separately.
No iPad Air 3 Release Happening?
In spite of these release and specs details, there are also news reports going around that Apple is not manufacturing such model as of now. According to a report, the company aims to give more attention on promoting the iPad Pro 2, which is slated to be a much expensive tablet.
The iPad Air 3 did not make an appearance during Apple's event in the past months where the iPhone 7 and Apple Watch Series 2 took center stage. Hence, a report from International Business Times came out that "Apple could be dropping the Air line completely" regardless of the demand.
In another side of the story, rumors have it that Apple is looking for some alterations in the components of the supposed iPad Air 3, thus marks the deferment.
