Report: Slimmer iPad mini 4 on the way, upgraded iPad Air 3 a possibility

A report from Macotakara has breathed new life into speculation about a possible iPad Air 3 and supports previous rumors that the new iPad mini 4 will be thinner than previous models. The blog cites sources saying the iPad mini 4 will have the same 6.1 mm thickness found in the iPad Air 2, making it slimmer than the 7.5mm thick iPad mini 3. The report also notes that the updated 8MP iSight camera found in the iPad Air 2 will likely make its way into the iPad mini 4, as well as the possibility of a fully laminated display and antireflective screen coating being included on the new device. The possibility of a new iPad Air 3 featuring an A9 chip — but still keeping the same external dimensions as the iPad Air 2 — being released alongside the new “iPad Pro” and the iPad mini 4 is also mentioned, flying in the face of other rumors suggesting the company was skipping an update to the iPad Air this time around.
