Apple just announced the latest version of its most popular tablet, the regular iPad. This new model is the ninth generation of the iPad that debuted in 2010, and features a new processor called the A13 Bionic.
In addition, there is a new 12-megapixel front camera that supports the Center Stage feature that first appeared with the iPad Pro last year.
The rest of the 9th generation iPad looks very familiar to anyone who’s seen an iPad in the past few years, complete with the same home button, frames, and single rear camera.
The company says that the new processor is 20 percent faster than the processor in the previous model. The 10.2-inch screen is the same size and resolution as it was before, but it now supports the True Tone feature that automatically adjusts the color temperature of the screen via ambient light.
The latest version of the iPad ships with iPadOS 15, which was announced earlier this year and includes improvements across the iPad’s home screen, app organization and multitasking features.
The iPad is what people are most attracted to, as it is the most economical model of the group. This year, the company raised the base storage capacity to 64GB and maintained a starting price of $329.
The device is also compatible with the first generation Apple Pencil and Apple Smart Keyboard. It is available in silver or space gray and can be ordered starting today, September 14th, with delivery expected next week.
