The iPad Air era is over ... we leave room for the "New iPad." There are no major revolutionary innovations in the name, but what about the tablet? Apple has revolutionized the mobile and tablet market. You may notice a decrease in creativity in the last few years. Changes and improvements are limited, despite a gradual increase in prices. So what's new and different about the "New iPad?" Read on to find out ...
The new iPad (2017): Highlights
Good news, the price will be lower! The product is available for sale on March 24 (pre-order) on Apple's website. Its price starts at £ 329. The new iPad (2017) integrates a more powerful processor and navigation is faster. In addition, the screen is brighter than the previous model. The quality is as good as the Pro model, with a 9.7-inch screen and a resolution of 2.048 x 1.536 pixels, or 264 pixels per inch! Small improvements have been done in the applications and the software, which are more integrated and easier to use.
The new iPad works with the latest Apple IOS 10 update and the A9 chip, the same as for iPhone 6S. This means it is faster than the iPad Air 2 (which works with the A8 chip). The base storage is 32 GB, but it will also be available in 128 GB.
Regarding the battery, Apple promises 10 hours of battery life during normal use (web searches, music, wi-fi, video ...) on this new model. It is available in 3 colours: silver, gold and grey sidereal.
The new iPad (2017): Weaknesses
