Ninth gen iPad sports 10.2-inch Retina display with True Tone

As expected, at today’s “California Streaming” Apple introduced the ninth generation iPad. Starting at US$329, the new tablet features a 10.2-inch Retina display with True Tone, a 12MP Ultra Wide front camera with Center Stage, support for Apple Pencil (1st generation) and Smart Keyboard.

A13 Bionic chip

The new iPad comes equipped with the A13 Bionic chip, which purportedlly delivers a 20% performance boost over the previous generation. This 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, according to Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. 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.

Advanced 12MP Ultra Wide Front Camera with Center Stage

The Center Stage experience on iPad Pro is now available on iPad, enabled by the new 12MP Ultra Wide front camera and Neural Engine. As users move around, Center Stage automatically pans the camera to keep them in view. When others join in, the camera detects them too, and smoothly zooms out to include them in the conversation. 

True Tone

For the first time, True Tone comes to the 10.2-inch Retina display on the iPad. A new, upgraded ambient light sensor enables True Tone, which adjusts screen content to the color temperature of a room. Joswiak says True Tone on the new iPad makes images appear more natural and provides users with a more comfortable viewing experience in all lighting environments.

Double the Storage

The new iPad starts with 64GB of storage; that’s double the storage of the previous generation. A 256GB option is also available.


Apple says the new iPad features 100% recycled aluminum in the enclosure — marking a major milestone where every single model in the iPad lineup now has a 100% recycled aluminum enclosure.The iPad also uses 100% recycled tin in the solder of the main logic board, and 100% recycled rare earth elements in the magnets in the enclosure.
