    Now that the IPP is out, I'm hoping that the iPad Air3 will be available for Christmas

    Any thoughts?

    There are rumors that 4" phone can still be released this year, it might go together with an iPad update, but I haven't had any rumor news about it. And they are rumors until Apple actually announces it. It 'feels' like iOS hardware updates are q2 2016 though.

    I think this is probably the most realistic answer. With traditional iPad sales continuing to decline, Apple is going to throw its resources into pushing the iPad Pro for now, and then maybe next fall you'll see an iPad Air 3 get released.

    The iPad Air 2 is still a blazing fast tablet that runs iOS 9 with split screen and has the touch sensor. There is no need for an Air 3 this year.

    No.

    You are aware that Apple held an event to unveil its iPad lineup for the holiday season already, and it consisted of iPad Pro and iPad mini 4?

    The Air 2 is still going strong. There is also not enough iPad demand to justify more than 1 flagship iPad product per season. The iPad Pro is new and has a high average selling price...a good thing for Apple going in to the holidays. They would only hurt themselves by introducing an Air 3 at the same time.

    Not anytime soon, but can't wait for next gen processors, next gen touch id, and 3D touch with the iPad Air 3!

    F the iPP for not including this year tech for that price point.

    This post gets posted once a week here. No. Buy the Air 2 if you need it now.

    There's as much of a chance for an Air 3 by Christmas as there is for an iPad Pro 2 by Thanksgiving.

    Haha... I would say that's a little exaggerated. It would be more like...... There's as much of a chance for an Air 3 by Christmas as there is an Apple Watch 2 by Thanksgiving.. but nice try. ;);)

    Saying there is as much chance as an IPP 2 by Thanksgiving would be equal to the iPhone 7 by the Halloween that just past us.. :p:D:D

    No. Apple's already announced and launched their 2015 iPad line up. Plus, Christmas is barely over a month away. They would have at least announced it by now so that people would plan for it in their holiday shopping.

    Honestly though, what would you be hoping for in an Air 3 that the Air 2 isn't able to do? Except I guess of course Touch ID gen 2 and Force Touch, but I can't imagine they would release an Air 3 with those kinds of hardware upgrades so soon after leaving them off the iPP.

    Are you high or something? If there was an iPad air 3 planned for this year, they would have announced it already. Geez...

    No, an updated iPad Air will cannibalise iPad pro sales. Updating an iPad mini and iPad pro at the same time is safe. Maybe around June with an updated iPhone 6c.
