There is also the 32GB cellular version that is £469 and the 128 GB cellular version that is £559. The colour options for the new iPad include silver, space grey, or gold. It seems that the rose gold colour will not be included as that is reserved especially for the iPad Pro.
Specifications of the New iPad 9.7 inch
The processor for the iPad 9.7 inch is the A9 chip and M9 coprocessor. It should run smoother and faster with these processors in place. The display will be a stunning 264 ppi, that is 2048 x 1536. Weighing in at 469 grams, it will not be too much of a burden to carry around. Whenever a new Apple product comes out, users want to know about the ports and buttons. The iPad 9.7 inch will have everything the iPad Air 2 had. It will also have the Touch ID home button, stereo speakers, a 3.5mm headphone jack, Lightning connector, and a SIM tray will be on the cellular versions.
Camera on the New iPad 9.7 inch
The camera of the new iPad will be 8MP rear facing, which is the same as it was on the iPad Air 2. It will also have panorama, autofocus, and a f/2.4 aperture. It can also do 1080p HD video as well as the much hyped slow motion recording at 120 fps. The forward-facing camera has the ever-popular FaceTime HD lens. It is 1.2MP with f/2.2 aperture. The forward-facing camera can record in 720p HD video which is fantastic for a tablet.
What Happened to the iPad Air 3?
The iPad Air 3 should have been the latest release from Apple, but instead they are simply calling the newest release the iPad or the iPad 9.7 inch. It seems that the Air is no longer a part of iPad’s range of tablets so there will be no Air 3. This newest release from Apple is an updated version of the iPad Air 2 which was released in 2014. It will come with the Apple’s A9 processor. This processor is an update to the A8X processor that’s in the iPad Air 2. This will be the same chip that the iPhone 6s has, but the camera and display will be the same as the iPad Air 2.
Apple’s sales have been declining lately for the iPad. The company is now repositioning itself to give budget conscious users an option that will take care of their needs at a price less than what the iPad Pro would be. Apple is hoping that current users will be wanting to upgrade to the newest offering. Many users hold on to their iPad for four or five years because of the longevity of the device. Now with the newest iPad coming out, they just might be tempted to upgrade. No one has their hands on one of the new iPads yet, so there could be some additional surprises from Apple that no one knows about. We will have to wait and see exactly what Apple has created when the iPad comes out.
