Whether we care to admit it or not, Apple is a part of the lives of the majority of us. Ever since the first iPhone and iPad launched, the company managed to keep a fair pool of fans, and it doesn’t seem like this will change anytime soon. While the products don’t usually change much from one year to the other, they keep the same high-quality build and nice features. Of course, every generation gets at least a minor upgrade. The new Apple iPad is not very different from last year’s model, even so, it is still one of the best tablets according to some. The new tablet is now available for purchase and its price starts at $329.
The design of the new iPad is the same as the one of last year’s model’s. Of course, this is not necessarily a bad thing, as people already loved it. Thinner bezels might have been a nice touch but then again, with these bezels, the tablet is comfortable to hold without covering any part of the screen. Speaking of the screen, the 9.7-inch display of the new iPad is quite a nice one. Of course, it isn’t as amazing as the one of the iPad Pro, on the other hand, it isn’t as expensive either. The display of the new iPad is able to ensure a great visual experience and this is all that counts after all.
Naturally, the new Apple tablet comes with a faster, newer processor, namely the A10 Fusion chipset. The difference between the previous model and the new one is noticeable and users will definitely enjoy the speedier model. Thankfully, the battery of the device can last for up to 10 hours of use according to Apple. This means that users should get through a day on a single charge without any problems. After all, 10 hours’ worth of use is not bad at all. Besides the processor, the new Apple iPad offers one more new feature. It now supports the Apple Pencil. Unfortunately, the price of the accessory is not included in the price of the tablet, so users will need to spend $99 more to get it. The good news is that using the Pencil with the iPad is just as great as using it with the iPad Pro.
The new model still doesn’t feature a Smart Keyboard Connector so users won’t be able to connect such an accessory to their tablet directly. Of course, they can still connect keyboards to the gadget via Bluetooth. Those who would like to have more features can still opt for the iPad Pro which has a slightly larger screen and it offers users the possibility to connect a keyboard to it. Of course, all this comes for a price. While the new Apple iPad is available for $329, the iPad Pro costs $649.
According to many, the new Apple iPad is the best tablet available right now. Android tablets seem to have slowly disappeared, as only a few new models launch every year. Compared to other tablets in the same price range, the new Apple iPad indeed seems to be the best option. It does have its shortcomings but still, it is a useful gadget to own if you don’t plan to use it instead of a computer. It just isn’t there yet.
