Apple launches 10th Gen iPad with new design and affordable price

As expected, the new iPad is thinner, with flat sides and a bigger 10.9-inch 2360x1640px IPS LCD with 500 nits. It's basically an iPad Air (2022) without the M1 processor.

Apple just refreshed its tablet collection with the most recent iPads shortly after the iPhones. Along with its new iPad Pro siblings, the new 10th generation iPad is the first to finally replace the venerable Lightning port with a USB-C connector.

As anticipated, the new iPad’s screen is slightly larger at 10.8 inches, but it is still an IPS LCD panel with a resolution of 2360 x 1640 and a maximum brightness of 500 nits. It is essentially an iPad Air 2022 sans the M1 chip and is slimmer than previously with flat sides.

Instead of the M1, it upgrades last year’s A13 SoC to A14 with a 6-core CPU, 4-core GPU, and a 16-core Neural Engine. There will be two storage options to choose from including 64 GB and 256 GB, just like last year. It supports Apple Pencil, but it is paired with a Lightning Port, so you will need a USB-C to Lightning adapter, which is thankfully included in the box.

The 12MP selfie camera on the tablet is set up to take landscape photos, increasing the number of people it can accommodate in the frame during video conversations. Additionally, it supports 1080 60 FPS video output. The primary camera has a 12MP sensor and a 4K video recording capability.

The Magic Keyboard, which connects via the Smart Connector and fastens magnetically, is also compatible with the 10th-generation iPad. In order to convert the slate into a laptop, it also comes with a trackpad and a kickstand. Both a Wi-Fi only and a Wi-Fi + 5G configuration of the slate will be offered.

It has a starting price of $450, which is a significant increase over last year, but at least the previous iPad will still be around for cheap. The new iPad is only up for pre-orders at the moment, and it will start shipping around the world later this month.
