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.
