With a 2,048 x 1,536 resolution, it promises a bright, colorful, and sharp picture quality, whether you’re watching a movie, playing Minecraft, or working on reports.

The latest iPad is powered by the A10 Fusion chip, with an embedded M10 co-processor that makes multitasking and switching between apps lightning-fast. Demanding games run without any hitches, and the animations and graphics improved compared to the older A9 chip. Its processor also enables access to the latest apps, including augmented reality experiences.

In terms of battery life, Apple claims that this tablet gives you up to 10 hours of continuous usage before charging. It will last you for a day, especially if you are only using it for a few hours. This iPad does not support wireless and fast charging, but that’s definitely not a deal-breaker.

Another key feature of this iPad model is its compatibility with the Apple Pencil. You can use the accessory (sold separately) to draw, take notes, and interact with different Pencil-enabled apps. The experience of using the Apple Pencil on the iPad is just as good as with the iPad Pro.
