A brand new iPad has hit the shelves with new and improved specs while still maintaining the ‘classic’ iPad look. Now with its 9.7 inch screen and 2048×1536 resolution, this model’s display puts it in a new league of its own. Optimised by using Apple’s own A10 Fusion graphics chip (making its debut in the iPhone 7), it now looks sharper, clearer and crisper with a 50 percent faster picture performance than the 10.5 inch iPad Pro. The improved touch-sensor response offers a very nice aide to designers or artists who work primarily on these devices.
The size is something to be noted. It’s 7.5mm thin and weighs less than 500g with an easy-to-use feel about it. The device features a protective case, two speakers on the bottom and a camera that can take 8MP images and 1080p HD video recordings. It has over 3.3 billion transistors that really picks up every detail in the operating stages of the iPad.
You can also add on the Apple Pencil. The stylus has a lightning adaptor on the end to connect it with the iPad and magnetic reading for instantaneous response. The handling of the stylus can effect line weight, provide shading and other effects when pressing it to the iPad screen. The battery life is good, offering up to 10 hours of continuous using pleasure on Wi-Fi. You can grab one of these 9.7-inch iPad from $539 ($159 for the Apple Pencil) from all good electronics stores or on Apple’s website.
