Drawing of Apple iPad Air 3 confirms that the slate is a smaller version of the iPad Pro
The other day, when a case for the Apple iPad Air 3 leaked along with some specs for the tablet, it sounded all too familiar. With cutouts for four speakers and the Smart Connector, the leaked image of the iPad Air 3 case was telling us that Apple's next flagship tablet is simply a smaller version of the Apple iPad Pro. Instead of a 12.9-inch screen, the iPad Air 3 carries a 9.7-inch display instead.

Other specs are said to match the business-centric iPad Pro including the use of the A9X chipset, and 4GB of RAM. There is speculation that the iPad Air 3 will support Apple Pencil, and will hook up with a smaller version of the Smart Keyboard. A drawing of the device that surfaced today allegedly reveals the dimensions of the iPad Air 3; the tablet will be 0.05 mm thicker and 0.1 mm wider than the Apple iPad Air 2.

One piece of good news that we told you about yesterday, is that there is a cutout on the case for an LED flash. This is confirmed by the drawing which shows the flash under the camera. The inclusion of the flash would be a first for the iPad..

We should see the Apple iPad Pro mini Apple iPad Air 3 unveiled as soon as the middle of next month when Apple holds a rumored media event. Also believed to be introduced at the event is the 4-inch Apple iPhone 5se, and a refreshed version of the Apple Watch.
