One of the most popular tablets available in the market, the Apple iPad series, has not been performing well in the global tablet market lately. The consistent decline in the number of iPad sales globally, adds more to the proof. Over the recent years, while the number of sales for Mac and iPhone is multiplying quite well, iPad, on the other hand, continues to proceed towards a downward drift. Going through the APPLE Q1 REPORT 2014, we notice that iOS giant traded 26M iPads worldwide, APPLE Q1 REPORT 2015 reports 5 Million drop in sales by reporting 21M, but APPLE Q1 REPORT 2016 shocked everyone by reporting the sale of only 16M iPads.
While Apple, at present, is drawing the headlines due to its clash with Justice Department and the FBI, the Cupertino-based iOS colossus is also devotedly bracing itself for a big year with upcoming launches of its latest line-up. iPad Air by Apple is a product, which is in a dire requirement for a reboot.
It seems Apple has finally found its savior in the form of iPad Air 3, to fortify the staggering economy of its iPad business. Tablets have been a type of enigma in the industry of gadgets. Back in 2010, when the first iPad became popular, there was absolutely no way to correctly envisage how the upgrade cycle for iPad will look like.
The release of iPad Air 3 will notably arrive less than a year after Tim Cook launched the iPad Pro having 12.9” Retina HD display, tons of memory, 4 speakers, special series of command capabilities, smart connector, stencil, and additional keyboard, among other things.
In anticipation of upcoming Apple Events in March 2016 and June 2016 respectively, Industry Leaders Magazine brings to you the iPad Air 3 review gathered from our sources via most prominent news, leaks, and rumors.

It will introduce the latest version of Smart Connector, which allows the iPad to connect with various accessories, for instance, Smart Keyboard, etc.
