Based on an apparently leaked design schematic of the iPad Air 3 obtained by Nowwherelse.fr, Apple looks to be adding the iPad Pro’s four-speaker audio to the new tablet, with two speaker openings on the top and two on the bottom.
The iPad Air line is due for a refresh, as in 2015, Apple chose to release the iPad Mini 4 and the new iPad Pro.
The diagram also suggests that the iPad will be gaining a rear flash making it better for taking photos in low light as well as lighting your way in the dark.
The headphone jack is also shown, suggesting that Apple is not ready to pull the plug on that yet, so to speak.
NowhereElse.fr cautions that the source of the sketches was reliable on two occasions, but their last tip was incorrect.
We could be seeing the iPad Air 3 alongside the iPhone 5se as early as March.
