Today is the day designated by Apple for the presentation in society, via Keynote, of the new generation of some of its main devices. The company has preferred to start by introducing the new generation of some of its iPad tablet lines, where we find both the ninth generation of entry-level iPad tablets and the new and long-awaited generation of iPads mini.
Regarding the first, Apple highlights that this generation will be governed by the A13 Bionic chip with Neural Engine, which provides up to 20% more power and performance than what users can find in the previous generation, with the A12 chip, comparing it also with Chromebooks stating that this generation of iPad is “three times faster than the best-selling Chromebook and six times faster than the best-selling Android tablet.”
In its data sheet we know that it also has a 10.2-inch Retina screen with True Tone (technology that allows the screen tone to be adapted to lighting environments), a 12MP front camera with an ultra-wide viewing angle of 122º, in addition of the compatibility with Apple Pencil of 1ª generation and with Smart Keyboard, being all the equipment managed by iPadOS 15.
It will be available in stores from Friday 24 at the starting price of $ 329 (in the United States), although it remains to be known what the price will reach international markets.
Those interested can learn more about it in the official note.
