I was originally waiting for the Air 3, but I just got the Air 2 yesterday. Here's the story... My mom has had an iPod touch 5g for about 2 years now. Yesterday, it decides to die. Like it wouldn't turn on or do anything. It's long out of warranty, so it isn't worth putting money into it. My mom knows (I'm 17 btw. It would be a little weird if you all assumed that I was older lol) that I've been wanting a full sized iPad, and she's been wanting a bigger screen iOS device. So the solution became clear...I'll give her my mini and I might as well just get the Air 2 now. It's a win-win! Lol. So I got a 128 gig Space gray Air 2 and passed my 32gb mini to my mom. She's loving it so far! It's a huge improvement over the iPod touch 5g. I am also loving my Air 2 So there's the story on why I'm not waiting on the Air 3 anymore i would still suggest that if anyone wants to get an iPad to wait till the fall. My circumstances just worked out now that I needed a new one now. If you cannot wait (or something happens like what happened to me) go for it.
