According to leaked design drawings shared by the French website, Nowherelese.fr, Apple’s upcoming iPad Air 3 is going to tout a four-speaker design and gain an LED flash feature next to the rear-facing camera.
As usual, the information isn’t guaranteed to be correct but the report does mention that the source who provided the information has been correct two out of three times in the past.
If the design in the drawings turns out to be true, the iPad Air 3 could possibly have two speakers on both the top and bottom of the tablet, similar to the four-speaker design found in Apple’s latest iPad Pro. When it comes to the rear-facing LED flash, the feature is one that was a bit unexpected considering the iPad is a not a device that people tend to use for its camera functionality very often. That being said, the move could possibly make sense as Apple looks for ways to combat declining iPad sales by giving the option for iPad owners to use the tablet to take better photos.
For those of you who didn’t already know, Apple is rumored to announce the iPad Air 3 at an upcoming media event in March. The next-gen iPad is said to come alongside a new 4-inch iPhone dubbed the “iPhone 5s” and possible Apple Watch updates. We don’t know too much about the iPad Air 3 just yet aside from the fact that it may lack Apple’s 3D touch feature. It is expected to have the usual round of hardware upgrades as any new product launch has had in the past. Ultimately we’ll have to wait and see.[Via Nowhereelse.fr]
