iPad Air 3 to feature new Rose Gold option

Rose Gold iPhone

Apple's next generation 9.7-inch tablet will be available in Rose Gold when it is released next month, according to 9to5Mac. The Apple blog reports that there are already "Rose Gold variations of the upcoming iPad Air 3 floating around Appleā€™s campus." Apple is also allegedly considering bringing the Rose Gold color to the next-generation 12-inch MacBook and the iPad mini.

The new 4-inch iPhone 5se and iPad Air 3 will make their debut in Silver, Space Gray, Gold, and Rose Gold during a keynote tentatively scheduled for March 15th. As we've previously reported, the iPad Air 3 will feature the same form factor as its predcessor, but borrow new features from the iPad Pro, including additional speakers and a Smart Connector. Other leaks have shown that the next-generation iPad Air will also include a rear-facing LED flash and possible Apple Pencil support. Unfortunately other reports have indicated that Apple will not introduce 3D Touch to its iPad lineup starting with the iPad Air 3.

The iPhone 5se will be an updated version of the iPhone 5s. It will be powered by Apple's A9 and M9 chips and include new features such as always-on-Siri, Apple Pay and it will ship with an upgraded 12MP iSight camera. It is unknown if the iPhone 5se will include 3D Touch, but it will include Touch ID for use with Apple Pay.

None of these specs or "iPhone 5se" name have been officially confirmed. We won't know anything for sure until Apple makes its official announcement in a couple of months.
