According to CrossMap, the iPad Air 3 could feature the upcoming A9 procesor, with 2GB memory and enhanced 4k resolution with 401 ppi, much like the iPhone 6 Plus.
According to the site, the tablet will have a 7in screen and 3GB RAM, as well as waterproofing and dustproofing features. In line with previous rumours that the iPad would be thinner than its predecessor, it's said to be 5mm thick.
Previous reports from Macworld claimed Apple’s follow up to the iPad Air 2 might not be given the obvious moniker of the iPad Air 3, but instead be called the iPad 7.
There are six existing models of the iPad - the original iPad (though there have been four generations), iPad Air, iPad Air 2, iPad Mini 1, iPad Mini 2, and iPad Mini 3 - making the upcoming version the seventh iPad model to be released, and perhaps explaining why it may be called the iPad 7.
According to 9to5Mac, the new tablet will sport 4GB RAM, with an A9 processor chip also being heavily hinted at. There was a big jump between the specs of the iPad Air and iPad Air 2, so it’s possible we could get a similar enhancement with the next iteration.
It’s not the only tablet that Apple has been rumoured to be working on, with the iPad Pro also popping up as a potential project set for release later in the year.
Rumours suggest that it would be bigger, at 12in, while leaked images of the alleged mould appear to confirm the existence of the larger iPad.
