It’s a trick question. Evan Niu:
Apple has been widely expected to unveil an iPad Air 3 at its rumored March event, alongside a new 4-inch iPhone “5se.” That would update the 9.7-inch model after Apple chose not to give the iPad Air 2 any love last fall… Instead, Apple is now reportedly going to release its new 9.7-inch tablet as part of the iPad Pro family, expanding the Pro moniker. This smaller Pro model will use a similar A9X processor, include more RAM like the 12.9-inch model, and adopt the same four-speaker stereo audio system. Significantly, the device will feature an updated display that can support Apple Pencil.
Price tag? Wait until March.
