Apple Unveils Its 9th-Gen iPad Along With A Complete Redesign Of The Mini

Ever since its launch back in 2010, the iPad has dominated the tablet market because of its beautiful display, intuitive user experience, and robust technological capabilities. Never one for complacency, though, Apple has only continued to improve such features with each iteration, the latest amongst them promising to be the best one yet.

That’s because, along with an updated 9th-generation 10.2-inch iPad, Apple has also unveiled an all-new iPad mini. In the case of the former, you’re getting the usual mix of model-year updates, like an improved A13 Bionic chip, an upgraded 12MP ultra-wide front camera, as well as an expanded 256GB storage capacity. When it comes to the iPad mini, however, you’ll find a markedly different device. For starters, it now features a larger 8.3-inch all-screen design, with a relocated Touch ID button, some added landscape speakers, and a pair of 12MP cameras fitted front and rear. Under the hood, it comes powered by the latest A15 Bionic chip, an addition that allows for longer battery life in addition to a 40% improvement in CPU efficiency and an 80% jump in graphics performance. Rounded out by a faster 5Gbps USB-C port, 5G connectivity, and support for Apple Pencil, the result is a tablet that’s ready to revolutionize your daily routine. You can preorder them today starting at $329 and $499, respectively.
