Nobody expected Apple to introduce a new iPad Air. But, by some miracle, the new 10.5-inch iPad Air 3 is here, and it offers iPad Pro features without the astronomical price. If you're thinking of picking up Apple's new tablet, also consider a screen protector, which will keep the display looking pristine long after it's been unwrapped from its box.

Note: As far as we're aware, the 10.5-inch iPad Pro and iPad Air 3 share the same dimensions. So, screen protectors designed for the 10.5-inch iPad Pro should also work with the iPad Air 3.
