While Apple's rumored upcoming 9.7-inch tablet was thought to be called the iPad Air 3, a new report claims that it will actually be joining the company's iPad Pro lineup. The tablet is said to feature the same processor as the the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, along with support for the Apple Pencil and a smaller version of the Smart Keyboard accessory that first debuted in fall 2015.
The new 9.7-inch iPad has previously been rumored to feature the same four-speaker setup as the current iPad Pro as well. The tablet is also said to be launching alongside the rumored iPhone 5se, Apple's new 4-inch iPhone, which will also reportedly debut on March 15.
