Apple’s iPad Air 3 is rumored to adopt an LED flash for its rear-mounted camera and a four-speaker design. Although the news is not confirmed by the tech company, the source is a French tech blog, Nowhereelse, known for generating accurate news.
Previously, the source was correct in two out of three occasions when it came to reporting on latest Apple devices. You might be apprehensive about this particular rumor, but if it turns out to be true, the new features will certainly add appeal to the tablet.
Unlike the past models, Apple’s iPad Air 3 will probably sport an LED flash installed at the backside which will enhance any photo taken. However, there is no confirmation regarding a camera upgrade over the current Apple iPad Air 2’s 8MP main camera.
Like the iPad Air Pro, iPad Air 3 will probably come with four speakers including two additional speakers for a better movie experience. Coupled with high pixel density for display, the tablet is expected to offer excellent picture combined with sharp sound quality, reports Phone Arena.
Last year, a lot of speculations were doing the rounds that the iPad Air 3 would be released soon. However, the Cupertino-based tech giant did not want to confuse its consumers with a slew of iPads, since it had already released the iPad Pro and iPad Mini 4. The company eventually decided to postpone the release of iPad Air 3 which is expected to launch around March this year.
To keep up with the trend of targeting March events for new releases, Apple might bring the tablet at the same time. In case the launch does not happen, Apple’s likely to choose its next event in September as the launch pad.
Not much is revealed about the new specs and features, but the tablet will probably feature a 9.7-inch display with a 4K screen. You may expect an A9x or A10 chip with more RAM. Reports say if the tablet launches in March, it will run on iOS 9, otherwise it will have iOS 10 if released later, reports PocketLint.
