We won’t know what to expect from the iPad Air 3 until Apple officially presents it, but it may end up being much more like a smaller iPad Pro than an Air.
Citing a reliable source, Engadget has shared a dimensional schematic detailing the iPad Air 3’s external specs.
“The most awesome stage”
Last year, Facebook's VP of Design thought the TNW Conference main stage was the best she'd ever been on.
Most notably, the new Air is expected to have the iPad Pro’s four-speaker array, as well as support for Apple’s smart keyboard.
The iPad Air 3 drawing also shows a device that’s a touch wider than the Air 2, and what appears to be a flash for the rear camera.
Engadget has confidence in its source, but you never know. This could be our first glimpse at the new iPad, or a clever rendering based on existing rumors.
Taken at face value, the little clues add up. Nothing here suggests anything more or less than an iterative move from Apple for its iPad Air, and that’s likely all that needs to happen.
Hopefully, we’ll know sometime next month.
