The new iPad can be ordered via Apple Store India and will be available in retail stores from Wednesday, October 26th. The Apple tablet comes in Blue, Pink, Yellow, and Silver colour options.

How is iPad 10th generation different from iPad 9th generation?

Firstly, the new iPad 2022 comes with an all-screen design. This means the tablet has slimmer bezels while the Touch ID button moves to the top of the frame. The slimmer bezels also mean the new iPad gets a slightly bigger 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display as opposed to the 10.2-inch screen on the previous entry-level iPad.

Apple is also bringing some colour to its new iPad as well, with the 10th generation model coming in four colours as opposed to the Space Grey and Silver options on the iPad 9th Gen.

There are several hardware-level upgrades with the new iPad. It is now powered by the A14 Bionic whereas its predecessor runs on the A13 Bionic. The rear camera has been upgraded to a 12MP wide camera from an 8MP sensor. The front camera now gets a 12MP landscape ultra-wide camera. The A14 Bionic chip also makes the cellular version of the new iPad 5G capable.

Notably, the iPad 10th generation model now comes with a USB-C connector, which keeps it in line with its other iPad brothers. Despite this, the new iPad continues to support the 1st generation Apple Pencil that charges via the Lightning connector. So, if you own a 1st generation Apple Pencil, you will have to purchase a USB-C to Apple Pencil adapter separately in order to charge the stylus via the new iPad. This adapter is priced at Rs 900 in India.
