At today’s presentation, Apple, as expected, limited itself to the announcements of the new Apple Watch and new iPad tablets. True, in addition to the updated iPad Air predicted by the leaks, an updated regular iPad was also presented – already the eighth generation.
The key feature of the new product Apple calls “huge leap in performance“. It is provided by the Apple A12 Bionic processor, which was used in the iPhone Xs and other Apple smartphones released almost two years ago. However, compared to the Apple A10, which powers last year’s seventh-generation iPad, this chip does provide a significant performance boost. Apple promises a 2x increase in graphics performance, as well as the ability to work with artificial intelligence.
Apart from the processor, the new iPad is virtually indistinguishable from its predecessor. Apple even claims that the new product will fit iPad cases from the previous generation. The novelty is equipped with the same 10.2-inch Retina display with rather wide bezels, one of which houses the front camera, and the other – a round home button with a fingerprint scanner. Unfortunately, as before, the most affordable iPad uses the Lightning connector instead of the universal USB Type-C.
The eighth-generation iPad is compatible with the first-generation Apple Pencil, just like its predecessor. However, the use of the new iPad OS 14 brings features such as handwriting input and others. But with the system update, the same functions will appear in the predecessor.
The new eighth generation iPad will be available in dark gray, silver and gold in versions with 32GB and 128GB of internal flash storage. The most affordable modification, with only Wi-Fi support, will cost only $ 329 (29,990 rubles in Russia). For a version with support for 4G LTE cellular networks, you will have to pay at least $ 459 (from 41,990 rubles in Russia). Pre-orders start today, and the start of sales is scheduled for next Friday – September 18th.
