The 10th generation iPad from Apple is officially announced. There are many updates it brings. Among them are bigger screens, faster performance and improvements in the camera sector.
Features of Apple iPad 10th Gen
The first update is in the screen sector. The 10th generation iPad now brings a Liquid Retina display panel of 2360 x 1640 pixels measuring 10.9 inches. Replaces the 10.2-inch screen in the previous generation. The design of the screen frame also looks thinner.
In the kitchen, Apple is now pinning the A14 Bionic chip. The chip that was previously used in the iPhone 12 , iPhone 12 Pro and iPad Air 2020 offers an increase in CPU performance by up to 20 percent and graphics performance by 10 percent when compared to the previous generation.
Turning to the camera sector, users can find a rear camera and a front camera with a 12 megapixel sensor. The placement of the front camera has also been changed. The front camera of the iPad 10th Gen can now be found on the longer side of the frame. So, it will be more optimal for FaceTime or video conferencing in landscape screen position. The front camera is also supported by the Center Stage feature. This feature is useful for making sure you are always in the frame even when you are moving.
Other features include Touch ID fingerprint sensor support on the power button, stereo speakers, WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, USB Type-C port and optional 5G cellular network support. One that is absent from Apple is now eliminating the headphone jack hole. So, completely dependent on TWS like AirPods, AirPods Pro and AirPods Max.
To support productivity, this device supports the use of the first generation Apple Pencil and the latest Magic Keyboard Folio accessories. Here are the specifications for the Apple iPad 10th Gen.
