Apple has introduced the new seventh-generation iPad, bringing more screen area and support for the full-sized Smart Keyboard to its most popular affordable iPad.
Starting at $329, the upgraded iPad features a 10.2-inch Retina display and the latest innovations including Apple Pencil support, the A10 Fusion chip, advanced cameras and sensors, and all-day battery life. The new iPad is available to order starting today and in stores starting Monday, Sept. 30.
“The new iPad packs even more value into our most popular and affordable iPad model featuring a bigger 10.2-inch Retina display, support for Apple Pencil and for the first time, the full-size Smart Keyboard,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s vice president of Product Marketing. “The new iPad was built to run iPadOS, which introduces powerful new ways to multitask, manage and mark up documents, use Apple Pencil and view more information at a glance on a redesigned Home screen. This new iPad with iPadOS takes everything people love about our most popular iPad and makes it even better for creating, learning, working and playing.”
The new 10.2-inch Retina display iPad has nearly 3.5 million pixels and a wide viewing angle making it a vivid canvas for creative expression and perfect for immersive augmented reality (AR) experiences that take advantage of its enhanced cameras and advanced sensors. Featuring the powerful A10 Fusion chip, the new seventh-generation iPad brings up to two times faster performance over the top-selling Windows PC4 for powerful multitasking and smooth gameplay in Apple Arcade.
The iPad weighs about one pound and for the first time features an enclosure made from 100% recycled aluminum. It also packs wireless performance and support for Gigabit-class LTE connectivity — delivering three times faster cellular data connections.
