Apple announced the latest iteration of the iPad at its 2021 event. The latest iPad comes with A13 chip, which Apple claims is way faster than any other Android tablet. A13 processor, Apple claims, is suitable for gaming, creativity and more. The processor makes the cameras better — both front and rear. Apple has brought the camera of the iPad Pro to the new iPad, which means that it gets a 12MP camera. What it also brings is the Centre Stage feature, which will make video calls much better on the iPad.
The latest iPad brings the TrueTone feature to Apple’s tablet. The new iPad will support first-generation Apple Pencil. It will support iPadOS 15, that makes the iPad closer to a basic Windows laptop.
Apple has made the storage capacity double on the iPad with the entry-level model starting with 64GB of memory. The new iPad features a 10.2-inch display. It was expected that Apple will increase the screen size for its entry -evel iPad but it didn’t.
The new iPad mini is available to order beginning today, and will be in stores beginning Friday, September 24.
Apple iPad mini gets a huge performance boost from the new A15 Bionic chip, which Apple claims delivers all-day battery life.1 The 6-core CPU delivers a 40 percent jump in performance, and the 5-core GPU delivers an 80 percent leap in graphics performance compared to the previous generation of iPad mini.
Apple claims that the A15 processor makes the new iPad up to 3x faster than the best-selling Chromebook, and up to a whopping 6x faster than the best-selling Android tablet. The Neural Engine in A13 Bionic also powers next-level machine learning capabilities, including Live Text coming in iPadOS 15, which uses on-device intelligence to recognize text in a photo that users can take action on, says Apple.
Apple Pencil (1st generation), available for purchase separately, is compatible with iPad (9th generation) for INR 8500.
Smart Keyboard for iPad is available for purchase separately for INR 13900 with layouts for over 30 languages, including simplified Chinese, French, German, Japanese, and Spanish.
