Apple iPad Air 3 Release Date: New Tablet Still Likely To Launch In 2016 [VIDEO]
Rumor mills have not ceased churning speculations centering on Apple iPad Air 3 release date hinting that the purported new iPad Air tablet will be launched sometime this year.
Other reports, however, suggest that the launch of the new iPad Air is not anticipated anytime soon. The reports base their theory on the fact that the lion's share of Apple's new products has already been launched. But some optimistic reports don't seem to share the same opinion.
Although Apple did not mention iPads during the recently concluded iPhone 7 launch, according to a report on MacWorld, it's safe to hazard a guess that the Cupertino based tech firm will take the wraps off the new iPads in autumn 2016 as there's still plenty of time left in the year.
It can be recalled that Apple releases its new tablets in the month of October. The original iPad Air was launched on October in 2013, while iPad Air 2 was launched on October in 2014. If Apple follows its release pattern, gadget freaks will have something to cheer about in the form of a new iPad this month.
Another factor that further cements the claim is that Apple has already begun tailing off the price of the current gen iPad Air 2. Some fans consider the discount as a clear indication that an all-new version is in the offing.
Apple is also expected to launch two other products i.e. the MacBook Pro 2016 and iMac 2016 computer. The year is not over yet, and if rumors proved to be true, the new iPad Air 3 will hit the store shelves alongside any of the two aforesaid products before the year ends.
Apple Pencil Support
The Apple Pencil support is one of the most anticipated features and there's hearsay that it will be launched in the market as one of the superior styluses today. If this happens, the new iPad will be one of the most run-after products, ChristianDaily reported.
Meanwhile some reports have pegged the device to be sporting an even sleeker and thinner design as compared to its precursor.
