Earlier when we are talking about the 4-inch iPhone 5se which is supposed to be unveiled next month, there are few rumors which suggested the iPad Air 3 to be showcased on the same stage. Though there are no trusted sources backing the rumors at that time, lately we got some glimpse of the design by the leaked case, and now Engadget has posted the blueprint of the tablet revealing much more information.
More than the successor for the iPad Air 2, the upcoming tablet looks more like a smaller size variant of 12.9-inch iPad Pro. Finally, an LED flash will be accompanying the rear camera on the iPad Air 3. As rumors suggested, it also features a Smart connector for connecting the accessories like a keyboard. We can also see the two speakers each on top and bottom edge of the tablet.
Compared to the iPad Air 2, the upcoming tablet will be slightly bigger in dimensions, 0.05mm thicker and 0.1mm wider. This is the same case with iPhone 6s and iPhone 6 dimensions. The 3D Touch will be skipped on this tablet as we seen with the earlier launched iPad Pro. Apart from the iPad Air 3, the 4-inch iPhone 5se is almost confirmed though there is no confirmed source.
The smaller iPhone 5se comes with the same design as of iPhone 5s and sports iPhone 6 specifications. It includes an 8MP rear camera and a 1.2MP front camera. While the chipset might be upgraded to A9 that was used in iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. It also includes NFC chip with Touch ID for using the Apple Pay virtual payments.
Apple is likely to leave 3D Touch feature on the iPhone 5se but offers Live Photos features. The device will be launched in the colors options – Silver, Space Gray, Gold, & Rose Gold. Since the expected launch event will be held in next month, stay tuned for more details of iPad Air 3 and iPhone 5se in the coming days.
