Apple launches the seventh-generation iPad bringing more screen area and support for the full-sized Smart Keyboard to its most popular and most affordable iPad.
The upgraded iPad features a stunning 10.2-inch Retina display and the latest innovations including Apple Pencil support, the fast A10 Fusion chip, advanced cameras and sensors, unmatched portability and connectivity, ease of use and great all-day battery life.
Bigger Display in a Powerful and Portable Design
The new 10.2-inch Retina display iPad has nearly 3.5 million pixels and a wide viewing angle making it a vivid canvas for creative expression and perfect for immersive augmented reality (AR) experiences that take advantage of its enhanced cameras and advanced sensors.
Featuring the A10 Fusion chip, the new seventh-generation iPad brings up to two times faster performance over the top-selling Windows PC4 for powerful multitasking and smooth gameplay in Apple Arcade. It also features an ultra-fast wireless performance and support for Gigabit-class LTE connectivity — delivering three times faster cellular data connections.
A New iPad Experience with iPadOS
iPadOS brings powerful new capabilities and intuitive features designed for the unique experience of iPad.
A redesigned Home screen shows more apps on each page and the Today View can now be added, allowing quick access to widgets for at-a-glance information including news headlines, weather and calendar events. Working with multiple files and documents from the same app is now easier with updates to Split View, as well as switching between multiple apps using Slide Over.
The must-have Apple Pencil can now mark up and send entire webpages or documents by simply swiping Apple Pencil from the bottom corner of the screen, and a redesigned tool palette gives easier access to useful tools, colours and shapes.
Managing documents in the Files app gets even more powerful with support for external USB drives and file servers. Safari brings desktop-class browsing to iPad so users always get the website best optimised for iPad, as well as support for popular web apps like Squarespace and Google Docs.
