Ipad 9th Generation

The New iPad comes with the updated A13 Bionic chip giving it way more performance and capability than the last iPad. To be exact, that is 20% faster than the previous iPad. Even with all these performance upgrades, it still retains its all-day battery life. The Ipad 9 is 3x faster than a Chromebook and 6x faster than Android tablets. This machine is quick.

The cameras have basically the same specs, they were just improved. The rear camera is said to be better in low light. The front camera is where most of the other changes are taking place. They added a 12-megapixel camera on the front that makes for even better video calls. Center Stage that was first implemented on the iPad Pro is coming to iPad 9. Center Stage basically auto changes depending on where the person moves. All these improvements just make video calls a lot more natural.

The display is a 10.2-inch Retina display that has a new much-loved feature. True Tone is now on the display for an enhanced viewing experience. Apple added a new ambient light sensor that changes the color of the content on the screen depending on the color temperature of the room.

This iPad is officially the last iPad Apple sells with the home button, so “grab it while you can”. iPadOS 15 adds many new features to make users more productive including the awesome widgets. iPad 9 also supports Apple Pencil. The base storage is double the last time at 64Gb so that’s one thing to rejoice about. Apple has priced this device at $329 for normal people and $299 for schools.
