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 for a lot of you.
