Apple unveiled the eighth generation 10.2-inch iPad with a base price of $329
Apple unveiled its eighth generation 10.2-inch iPad. The new iPad is equipped with a 10.2-inch screen, a processor with a faster A12 chipset (last used in the iPad Air and iPad mini 2019 models). This is while still maintaining the same price of $329. Customers buying iPads for educational purposes can get the new iPad at a discount of $299.
The A12 chip brings Apple’s “Neural Engine” processing capability to this tablet for the first time. According to Apple, the new model will continue to support existing frames, including the frame and keyboard made by Logitech. It will also work with the first generation Apple Pencil like the previous iPad model.
Apple’s eighth-generation 10.2-inch iPad will come with the iPadOS 14 operating system, bringing the new features that Apple showed in its software updates (including new Apple Pencil features such as manual text input).
Apple had already unveiled the 7th generation iPad in the fall of last year and upgraded the 9.7-inch iPad screen, which was the standard of the company’s iPads for years, to a larger 10.2-inch screen. Unfortunately, this device still uses the old Lightning port next to the physical Touch ID key. This tablet will be available in both 32 GB and 128 GB versions in gray, silver and gold colors. Its LTE version will also have a base price of $459.
