The device has retained the familiar design and three colors: space gray, gold and silver. All options are housed in recycled green aluminum.
The “heart” of the iPad 8 is the A12 Bionics processor with 6 computing, 4 graphics cores and an Apple Neural Engine. It is 40% faster than its predecessor, and its graphics are 2 times faster.
Apple claims the iPad is 2x faster than the most popular Windows laptop and 3x faster than the equally popular Android tablet.
The tablet received a Retina display with a diagonal of 10.2 inches and a resolution of 2160 × 1620 pixels with a brightness of 500 cd / m². There is a proprietary oleophobic coating that prevents dirt.
The tablet also received support for the 1st generation Apple Pencil. Apparently, the company will only produce this version for the 8th generation iPad , since the new iPad Air uses the Pencil 2.
The new iPad can be equipped with both a proprietary keyboard and its counterpart from Logitech. The connection is made using the Smart Connector.
The tablet’s multimedia capabilities are represented by a front-facing FaceTime camera and a rear 8-megapixel module. The novelty also received stereo speakers.
The version of the tablet with support for SIM cards is equipped with support for Gigabit LTE. Both nanoSIM and “virtual” eSIMs are supported.
The new product has increased up to 10 hours of continuous operation time and is charged from a standard Apple USB-C Power Adapter.
By the way, contrary to the promises of representatives of the company, the package of the iPad 8 will include the power adapter itself and the USB ‑ C / Lightning cable.
The cost of the new iPad 8th generation in the US starts at $ 329 for the most modest version. Like the previous model.
A model with 32 GB of memory and LTE support in Pakistan retail will cost 54,645.55 Pakistani Rupee.
