Rumors are making the rounds that the Apple iPad Air 2 will be the last in its line. It has been more than a year since the device was launched and there is no updated version of the Apple iPad Air 2. According to many reports, the Cupertino-based company will concentrate on the Pro and mini lines.
According to a Macworld report, the iPad Air 3 will release in March 2017 instead of in September 2016.
It is believed that the iPad Air 3 will be slimmer than its predecessor. According to many reports, Smart Connector and Apple Pencil compatibility will arrive with the Apple iPad Air 3. The device will be offered in colors such as rose gold, space grey, gold and silver.
