    iPad Air 3 RUMOR

    Rumor: Leaked 'iPad Air 3' design suggests four speakers, LED flash







    Apple's rumored third-generation iPad Air might adopt not just a quad-speaker design, but also an LED flash for its rear-mounted camera, according to a design illustration shared on Monday.

    The source of the information isn't fully reliable, but has previously been accurate in two out of three occasions, said French site Nowhereelse.

    Doubling speaker ports would take the Air in the direction of the iPad Pro, giving it both louder sound and true stereo panning. An LED flash may be less likely, since while many people do use iPads for photography and scanning documents, Apple has consciously left flashes off of every previous iPad model including the Pro.

    Apple may want as many upgrades as possible to entice people to buy the Air. iPad sales have been declining for the past several quarters, and lower-cost Minis are now the most popular size format, although the Air 2 is the best-selling individual model.

    A third-gen Air is expected to ship sometime in the first half of 2016. Little else is known about it, though it will presumably play catch-up with the Pro through a faster processor.

    Alleged 'iPad Air 3' schematic reaffirms Smart Connector, rear camera flash




    Yet another schematic claiming to show off the design of Apple's anticipated "iPad Air 3" again includes a Smart Connector, rear camera LED flash, and four-speaker array.

    The latest images were provided to Engadget by what it called a "reliable source." They show a 9.7-inch iPad with largely the same design as the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, with the lone exception being the addition of a rear camera flash.

    Included dimensions indicate that the so-called "iPad Air 3" will be 0.05 millimeters thicker and 0.1 millimeters wider than the current iPad Air 2.

    The details from the latest leak are identical to design illustrations supposedly for a next-generation iPad Air that leaked online last month. And on Sunday, a third-party case surfaced online again showing space for a Smart Connector, four speakers, and rear camera flash.

    Aside from those changes, the design looks largely unchanged from the iPad Air 2, which itself is very similar to the iPad Pro. That includes a headphone jack and lock button up top, volume buttons on the right side, and a camera on the back.

    Still unknown is whether the next-generation iPad Air will support the Apple Pencil. The $100 stylus accessory is currently only compatible with the iPad Pro, which sports a special display designed in tandem with the Apple Pencil.

    Apple is widely expected to introduce an "iPad Air 3" in the first half of 2016, likely at a forthcoming March event where the company is also rumored to showcase a new 4-inch iPhone and more Apple Watch styles and bands. The company is also expected to introduce new MacBooks in the first half of the year, sporting Intel's latest-generation "Skylake" processors.
