It's the "most affordable iPad ever".

Apple has unveiled a whole new iPad at their Spring 2018 event at a Chicago high school. The new tablet will be compatible with the Apple Pencil – previously you had to own an iPad Pro to use the Pencil, and will be available from $469 AUD. It will come in silver, space grey and gold. Schools can purchase the iPad for $439. 

The tablet will have a ten-hour battery life, an eight mega-pixel camera, an A10 fusion chip and a 9.7-inch Retina display. 

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.”

“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. This iPad also has the power of the A10 Fusion chip, combined with the big, beautiful Retina display, advanced cameras and sensors that enable incredible AR experiences simply not possible on other devices.”

The A10 Fusion Chip will deliver 40 per cent faster CPU and 50 per cent faster graphics performance than the previous 9.7 inch model.
