NEW iPAD RELEASE ALERT: The radically fast new iPad
To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the iPad, Apple has just revealed their brand new models that are faster and more sophisticated than ever. Redesigned and re-engineered, these versatile devices are powerful and easier to use, empowering us to do more and stay connected.
What do you need to know about the new iPads? Let’s break it down.
What are the new iPads going to be like?
Apple has released a new range of iPads unlike any we’ve seen before. Running with a fresh beta of iOS 14, faster processing, and more versatility, Apple has proven once again that the sky’s the limit when it comes to innovation.
The new iPad (8th Generation) will come in the original 10.2” size, and is a thin, light and affordable option with better retina display and the brilliant A12 Bionic Processor. If you’re looking to step up to a more powerful iPad, the new iPad Air meets you there: with the radical new A14 Bionic Chip, front and back camera, and even touch ID mounted in the power button, this is the fastest and most powerful iPad yet. Depend on faster graphics and user performance, with a 10.9” liquid retina display allowing you to enjoy your iPad more than ever.
What’s the biggest upgrade on the new iPad?
So far, the addition of the A12 Bionic Processor on the iPad (8th Generation) and the A14 Bionic Processor on the iPad Air are the most impressive. Boasting faster, more vivid and intuitive processing, it will sync up perfectly with all the newest features, apps and updates.
What options are there for the new iPad?
The new iPad is available in two main new models: the iPad (8th Generation) and the iPad Air.
Will you make the switch?
Let’s take a look at the main selling points:
