Buy for the Improved Hardware
The iPad Air 3 comes with souped up hardware that makes it a great choice for those that want to future-proof their next tablet.
The iPad Air 3 features the company's A12 Bionic Chip which makes it 70% faster than the company's 9.7-inch iPad and a whole lot faster than the iPad Air 2. That's a big deal if you plan to use your iPad for more than light browsing and email.
It also comes with an advanced 10.5-inch Retina display with True Tone technology that makes it a solid option for those that love to watch movies and play beautiful looking games.
You also get an 8MP rear camera and a 7MP FaceTime camera that should work well for conference calls and catchups with family members.
It's not as powerful as the iPad Pro line but it'll get the job done for a lot of people.
