Up to this date, it is not yet clear as to what iPad Air Apple would release this year. There are reports that it would just be a relaunch of their iPad Air 2. But there are also rumors that it will jump onto the next generation of it, the iPad Air 3. Although the Cupertino-based company has yet to confirm the matter, there are already speculations about the next tablet’s release date and specs.
Next iPad Air Release Date
Whether it would be an iPad Air 2 2017 or an iPad Air 3, rumors about its launch date are already online. According to Droid Report, there are two possible release dates for the next tablet in the iPad Air line. First is on March 30 as part of Apple’s Spring Event. Other posts, on the other hand, suggest that it will roll out on April 4 at the new Apple Park Headquarters.
On a good note, more information was disclosed by the same post of the publication. These two dates are said to be for two different regions. The March 30 launch will probably take place in the United Kingdom, while the later launch date is in the United States. This is mainly because local pick ups start on April 4 in US stores.
Now, it is a known fact that April would be a really busy month for Apple. They are launching four iPad Pro models including the iPad Pro Range. But, some analysts still believe that there is still room for the launch of iPad Air 2 2017 or iPad Air 3. Should that be the case, then consumers should wait for official announcement from Apple.

As of writing, details about Apple’s next tablet are very limited. University Herald reported that the next iPad Air will boast an A9X chip, Apple Pencil support, and a 4-speaker audio system. Its display, on the other hand, is going to be capable of a 2048×1536 screen resolution. This top-of-the-line specs will of course be accompanied by top-of-the-line shooters as well. But, information about the cameras are not out yet.
In terms of pricing, consumers should expect it to be at around $487 for the 32GB model. It did not directly come from Apple but that is the standard price of the Apple iPad. However, keep in mind that these specs are all speculations. The Cupertino-based company has yet to confirm anything about their next iPad Air tablet.
