More powerful, with retina display and Pencil support: here is the new Apple iPad.
Apple products review
A new 9.7-inch iPad, with support for the Pencil pen, retina display and A10 fusion processor. This is the slightly surprising announcement from Chicago and signed by Apple. The Cupertino house has actually updated its most popular iPad (by format), introducing support for Apple Pencil and improving its performance.
The retina display is certainly a considerable step forward for what, in fact, is a bit ‘the iPad in the basic version. And even the A10 Fusion processor, the one introduced by Apple with iPhone 7, gives more power.
“IPad is our vision of the future of computing,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s vice president of product marketing, during the presentation – hundreds of millions of people around the world use it every day at work, at school and for fun. The new 9.7 “iPad starts from the most loved and appreciated features of our most popular iPad and perfects them to foster creativity and learning. Our most popular and accessible iPad now supports Apple Pencil, giving even more users all the advanced capabilities of one of our most creative tools ever. This iPad also integrates the powerful A10 Fusion chip, as well as a large and bright Retina display, optimized cameras and advanced sensors, with which you can give life to incredible AR experiences simply impossible on other devices ».
On the processor it must be added that this A10 Fusion, designed by Apple with a 64-bit desktop level architecture, offers much higher CPU performance and graphics performance than previous models. And it makes sense because with this new iPad, Apple also focuses on augmented reality: cameras, chips and sensors have been designed, for the same admission of the Cupertino house, to support augmented reality.
This 9.7-inch iPad is available in silver, sidereal gray and the new gold finish starting at £ 275.00 for the 32GB Wi-Fi model.
