Apple has just launched its 9th generation 10.2-inch iPad, featuring the powerful A13 Bionic processing chip, Center Stage, True Tone, Apple Pencil support, and now starting with double the storage, at the same starting price.
The new iPad features a 10.2-inch Retina display with True Tone, and a 12MP Ultra Wide front camera with Center Stage. Equipped with the powerful A13 Bionic chip, it delivers a 20% performance boost over the previous generation. This makes the new iPad up to 3x faster than the best-selling Chromebook, notes Apple.
“iPad has never been more essential for working, learning, and communicating, and we’re excited to bring one of the biggest updates ever to our most popular iPad,” said 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.
The new iPad features 100 percent recycled aluminum in the enclosure and also supports the Apple Pencil (1st generation).
The new iPad is available to order beginning today on apple.ca/store and in the Apple Store app in 28 countries and regions, including Canada, with availability beginning Friday, September 24.
Wi-Fi models of iPad are available with a starting price of $429 in Canada, and Wi-Fi + Cellular models start at $599 CAD, in silver and space gray finishes.
