There will be no 3D Touch for the iPad Air 3, and the iPhone 7 will not change from the iPhone 6s

We are getting to know more details about the future that Apple has planned with 3D Touch, the evolution of Force Touch that was presented months ago in the Apple Watch and the MacBook Pro . The natural evolution would be for 3D Touch to arrive at the iPad Air in its next iteration, in the first half of 2016, but according to the latest rumors, it seems that Cupertino will reserve the right to implement this technology in their tablets for the time being.

If you were expecting a big evolution for 3D Touch on iPhone 7, don’t expect too much either. In fact the pressure sensor of the iPhone 7 will have a technology and structure very similar to those of the iPhone 6s , remaining as an additional layer of the screen, although surely with a relevant miniaturization so that it takes up less space and even consumes less energy.

The launch date of the iPhone 7 is now confirmed for September 2016, as expected . The iPad Air 3 could indeed be presented before November, specifically in March 2016, just where the 4-inch iPhone and the second generation of the Apple Watch are also expected to arrive. This could be a special event at this time; in March of this year we already saw the MacBook with a 12-inch Retina screen and the final launch of the Apple Watch.

And that’s because although Cupertino usually presents the new generation iPad in autumn, this year no new iPad Air has been presented, so it would be a good opportunity to give a facelift to the until a few months ago its largest and most powerful tablet , now that the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPad Pro, iPad mini 4 and Apple TV have enjoyed all their glory, and what they have left this Christmas. Remember that the iPad Air was launched on October 2, 2014.
