Here's everything you need to know about Apple's new, cheaper iPad
Apple, the glorious tech company behind the likes of the iPhone, iPod and more, has officially launched its latest iPad and, like music to our budget conscious ears, it’s cheaper than previous models.
The sleek device spans across 9.7 inches, has Touch ID, an HD FaceTime camera, 10 hours of battery life and *takes deep breath* an 8-megapixel rear camera. It also features an LTE option and Apple’s A10 Fusion chip.
Speaking on the launch, Greg Joswiak, Apple’s vice president of Product Marketing said, “iPad is our vision for the future of computing and hundreds of millions of people around the world use it every day at work, in school and for play. This new 9.7-inch iPad takes everything people love about our most popular iPad and makes it even better for inspiring creativity and learning.”
He added: “Our most popular and affordable iPad now includes support for Apple Pencil, bringing the advanced capabilities of one of our most creative tools to even more users.”
Fancy right? Right.
