Apple IPad 9.7in 2018 Technical Specsification:
You get an A10 Fusion processor, which is about as advanced as you could expect; even the current Pro iPads have only an A10X Fusion, the souped-up version of this chip. New iPad is more powerful than most PC laptops and almost all Chromebooks, which are one of its biggest rivals in the low-priced computing. It also claimed that the A10 Fusion chip will “enable incredible AR experiences simply not possible on other devices”.
New iPad Storage is the same as previous Model, with 32GB as the only entry-level option and 128GB as the upgrade. Apple is focusing heavily on cloud storage – schools will get 200GB of iCloud storage for free.
The rear-facing camera is 8Mp camera offering 1080p HD video. The front-facing camera is 1.2Mp with 720p HD.
10 hour battery
Up to 300MBps LTE
