Apple is going to launch a new iPad during its special press conference scheduled to mid-March. The device will be most likely a new member of the Apple’s iPad Air line. Dubbed “iPad Air 3” the handset is reported to feature a package of top-notch hardware including a 4K display, fast processor and a powerful battery.
Apple is preparing to unveil the iPad Air 3 on March 14th. According to recent leaks the tablet is expected to debut with a great number of upgrades over its predecessor.
Unnamed supply chain source claims that the upcoming iPad Air 3 will arrive equipped with a big 9.-inch screen panel sporting 4K resolution. Additionally, powered by a fast Apple’s A9 processor coupled with 3GB or even 4GB of RAM (which is double as much as the amount of RAM found in the driven by the A8X processor iPad Air 2) the slate will deliver its potential users an undisturbed multitasking mode of iOS 9.3, which the tablet will most probably work on. Both the iPad Air 3 and the latest update to Apple’s operating system are expected to debut on the same day, which means that the iPad Air 3 may be the very first device to run the freshest version of the OS.
Going further, the iPad Air 3 is also rumored to be kept alive by energy generated by a massive though still of unspecified parameters battery said to beat the already pretty capable unit employed by iPads that delivers 10 hours of usage.
Other than that the device is also believed to come with an additional speaker grills giving audio experience similar to this found in the iPad Pro and a rear camera with LED flash support to enhance the quality of low-light photos.
Few days ago Apple unveiled that iPad sales have a declining character and that they recorded a 25 percent decrease in sales in comparison to the Q1 of 2015. The lack of update to the Apple’s most popular line is considered one of the main reason of this drop. Hoping that the iPad Air 3 will come as a remedy to the sale problem, Apple has to work hard to deliver a really powerful device if they want the iPad Air users to upgrade their existing handsets.
The iPad Air 3 will be released on March 14th along with a new affordable, compact member of the iPhone family – the iPhone 5SE – and the 2nd gen Apple Watch.
