Wait for the 10.2-inch iPad
If you're looking at the iPad Air 3 because of its price point, you might want to hang around for a few more weeks because it looks like Apple has another budget model up its sleeve.
Apple is reportedly working on a new iPad with a 10.2-inch display. We don't know much about it right now, but all signs point to a launch later this year, possibly in October.
The device is expected to replace the 9.7-inch model from 2018 and it should come with an assortment of upgrades at an extremely competitive price point.
If you can wait, it might be a good idea to hold off so that you can compare the new model to the iPad Air.
