In 2015, Apple chose to skip the launch of the eagerly awaited iPad Air 3 and instead surprised fans by announcing the mammoth 12.9-inch iPad Pro and a 7.9-inch iPad Mini 4.

This apparently led many to believe that the iPad Air 2 (2014) may have been the last of the original 9.7-inch based tablet to come out of Cupertino based company.

Now, a report has surfaced that Apple is not yet done with the device and is all set to unveil the third generation iPad Air in March.

Technology blog 9to5Mac, citing reliable sources, has claimed that Apple is expected to host a launch event on 14 March to reveal the iPad Air 3.

It has come to light that iPad Air 3 will have lots of upgrades over its predecessor. Apple has reportedly incorporated LED flash for the primary camera on the rear-side to capture good quality images under low-light conditions.

Other improvements include more speakers in the tablet to provide enhanced audio user-experience. The company has also used advanced display technology to support Apple Pencil input like the iPad Pro.

The tipster has also revealed the Apple will announce new line of colour bands in Sports, Hermes and Milanese Loop edition of Apple Watch.
