The “iPad Air 3″ is almost here. According to a new report from 9to5Mac, the new tablet will likely be unveiled at a special media event sometime in March.
The report was lacking any significant new information about the tablet, only saying that Apple has been testing versions compatible with the optional Apple Pencil stylus that first arrived with the iPad Pro back in November. Earlier this week, a purported leak of the next-generation tablet showed a design with four speakers and a rear-facing flash.
Along with the so-called “iPhone 5se,” Apple is also expected to announce new Apple Watch band options at the event. Here’s more from the report:
As for the new line of Apple Watch models, we are told that the update will include multiple new colors for the rubber Sport Bands, additional colors for the line of Hermes bands, a black version of the Milanese Loop, and an additional band line made out of a new material. Apple is likely preparing to also release a pair of operating system software updates soon after the event to complement the aforementioned hardware updates: iOS 9.3 with Night Shift for the “iPhone 5se” and “iPad Air 3” plus WatchOS 2.2 with the new Maps app for the new Apple Watch models.
