Apple unveiled a new iPad and it comes with some pretty major design changes.
The new iPad has a larger 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display with flatter edges, giving it a much sleeker appearance and, for the first time ever on an iPad, the webcam to the longer side of the display.
The newest iteration uses USB-C connectivity instead of a Lightning port this time around, making it the last modern iPad model to make the switch.
The company also ditched the headphone jack on this device and the home button. Apple has instead chosen to put Touch ID on the power button, bringing the device in line with newer models of the iPad Mini and iPad Air, while the iPad Pro uses Face ID.
The new Apple iPad comes with support for Wi-Fi 6, and the cellular version now supports 5G.
The device doesn’t come with the M2 chip but instead uses the A14 Bionic chip. This is the same chip used in the iPhone 12 and an upgrade from the A13 Bionic that was in last year’s ninth-generation iPad.
The 10th generation iPad features a 12MP ultrawide front camera along the landscape edge of the iPad and an updated 12MP rear camera with 4K video.
Apple says the device also has support for the first-gen Apple Pencil and a new Magic keyboard Folio, which is priced at $249.
The 10th generation iPad starts at $449 for a 64GB model, whereas the old version starts at $329. The new iPad comes in four colors: blue, yellow, pink, and silver.
