    If it comes with pencil, I need it. When will it be released?

    The rumors kinda eliminate the Air 3 in favor of a smaller IPad Pro. I think the Air series stops at the 2.

    Yeah I saw this debate about iPad Air 3 with pencil, versus iPad Pro mini. I don't know if I understand the difference, or where it stands. Isn't this six of one, half dozen of the other?

    The difference is mostly name and getting IPP features, as to when. The expectation is for Apple's Media event next month.

    March 15th is the rumoured date of the announcement. If the design images we have are true and it has a 4 speaker design then I think it will be called a new iPad Pro.
    I hope it has pencil support but I won't cry if it doesn't. It would be wise for Apple to do so, Pencils will fly out the door and I think many many many people who have been sitting on older versions will finally upgrade their iPads.

    I believe the smaller iPad Pro is Apple's attempt to clean up the iPad line

    At this point I think we can all take it to mean the next 9.7" iPad whenever someone says the Air 3 or Mini Pro, or whatever.

    Betting it will weigh a bit more. The screen adds a bit more weight.

    I bet it would be next to nothing the same, if not lighter knowing Apple. Not that it matters.

    If it is gonna have pencil support it will be slight heavier than the iPad Air 2 but if it just has four speaker I doubt the weight difference will be much between the two !

    You'd be surprised by how much you can find if you actually go looking.

    As long as it's not getting iPad Pro prices. I don't want to spend an extra hundred or two for a 9.7" "iPad Pro". Hopefully the base model continues to start at $499.
