    I'm surprised we haven't seen any leaks. There has been literally nothing on Macrumors front page regarding iPad...

    I'm pretty sure it's safe to say the iPad Pro 9.7" IS the iPad Air 3/iPad 7 (the Air 1 was iPad 5 BTW.)
    lol

    Kallum.

    Apple started out announcing iPads in Mar/Apr until the Airs and the Pro 12.9" where they shifted to Oct/Nov releases. With the 9.7" Pro this year they went back to a Mar/Apr (Mar 31) release.

    I just cracked the screen on my Air 1 so I was really hoping (against hope) that Apple might go back to the Air's Oct/Nov refresh cycle for future 9.7" iPads but at only a month or two to go until that possible launch date I would have expected to see a few parts leaked by now so I fear that the shift back to the original Mar/Apr refreshes of the iPad line that happened when the current iPad Pro 9.7" was announced is here to stay so probably no new iPads until Mar/Apr 2017. I'll love to be wrong though.

    There isn't going to be an "Air 3".

    People have to give up that dream.

    I don't understand why people don't realize the Pro is the Air 3. It even has almost the exact same design as the Air 2.

    I feel the same way about the 5SE iPhone - Apple ain't foolin' anyone with that release.

    Because they want to believe an Air 3 will come...don't ask me why.

    I don't get it either. It only goes to show the power of marketing. Change the word "air" to "pro" and people are convinced that it's a whole new product line, but really it's not. It's just a re-branding.

    I know which iPhone he's talking about, but nope, I have no idea what he means.

    I have no idea what he means by Apple attempting to fool people. The iPhone SE has the same CPU, GPU, and amount of RAM as the iPhone 6S. It's just more compact (which a lot of people like me prefer), uses the 4/5-style chassis (which in my opinion looks nicer than the 6 series), and costs less.

    And I say all this as a 6S owner...had the SE come out on the same day, I'd prefer the SE and would have one.

    I think the only fooling that is going on are all those people that keep referring to it as "5SE" trying to make it look worse/older/slower than it is, when really it's a compact 6S.

    This is the most confusing thread I've read in a while, on several levels.

    Why does the OP refer to a new iPad 5?!

    What the heck is that???

    I think maybe the OP meant iPad Mini 5, and is curious to when it is coming out.

    But then he says he wants a new Air, which suggests that he's asking about the next 9.7" model.
