Apple Inc. is still mum about the development of Ipad Air 3. However, curious gadget lovers found some interesting rumors about the upcoming device. Now, we'll give the latest updates about iPad Air 3 and reviews of recently launch iPad Mini 4.

Multiple tech websites cited the article from MacWorld, which says iPad 3 Air could be released in the market in the first quarter of 2016.

As for the specs and features of the third-generation Air, IT Pro published that the device will be even thinner than the iPad Air 2, which is just 6.1mm thick itself. In order to do this, the tech giant made various design tweaks for the Air 3. The device will house an iOS 9 or higher as standard, an A9X processor, and up to 128GB storage.

Furthermore, the device is rumored to have a 4K display of 2334 x 3112. If those reports are true, Air 3 will significantly have improvements from the 1536 x 2048 resolution of the iPad Air 2.

Meanwhile, Alphr published that Air 3 might not have the pressure-sensitive 3D Touch display. However, it is possible that Apple will look to expand the scope of the technology in future iPad releases.

Renowned KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims that 3D touch is "one of the most severe production bottlenecks in iPhone 6s supply chain," and believes the supply chain to be currently below 30% utilization.

3D technology can sense the amount of pressure being applied to the screen. The technology is allegedly designed for the screen of bigger tablets like iPad Pro.

The Apple Watch and the trackpad of the MacBook are equipped with Force Touch, which can detect the amount of pressure from the sensors attached along the edges.

As for the price of the iPad Air 3, it is believed that the device could cost around $610.

For those who are interested in Apple Mini 4, Yahoo Finance published the important specs and features of the gadget. The website said that Mini 4 is significantly prettier than Mini 3. Mini 4 has 2,048 x1,536 pixel resolution and 326 pixels per inch (ppi) density.

 The Fourth generation of Apple Mini series has a fingerprint sensor for security and Apple pay transactions, which is a big addition for multi-person households and online shoppers

The price of Apple Mini 4 with 16GB of storage stands at $400.
