Following the release of the iPhones, Apple updated its tablet lineup with the latest generation of iPads.
The new 10th generation iPad is released alongside its new iPad Pro siblings, and it finally replaces the venerable Lightning port with a USB-C connector.
The new iPad has a slightly larger screen at 10.8-inches, as expected, but it is still an IPS LCD panel with 2360 x 1640 resolution and 500 nits peak brightness.
It’s also thinner than before, with flat sides, and is essentially an iPad Air 2022 without the M1 chip.
Instead of the M1, it improves on last year’s A13 SoC with a 6-core CPU, 4-core GPU, and a 16-core Neural Engine.
Just like last year, there will be two storage options to choose from: 64 GB and 256 GB.
It accepts Apple Pencil, but because it is paired with a Lightning Port, you will need a USB-C to lightning adapter, which is thankfully included in the box.
The 12MP selfie camera on the tablet is oriented for landscape shots, allowing it to fit more people into the frame during video calls.
It also supports 1080 60 FPS video output. The main camera is also a 12MP shooter with 4K video recording capabilities.
The Magic Keyboard, which connects via the Smart Connector and magnetically attaches to the 10th generation iPad, is also supported.
It also comes with a trackpad and a kickstand, allowing it to be used as a laptop. The slate will be available in two configurations: Wi-Fi only and Wi-Fi + 5G.
It starts at $450, which is a significant increase over last year, but the previous iPad will still be available for a low price.
The new iPad is currently only available for pre-order, and it will begin shipping around the world later this month.
