Apple's, and it's the biggest update to the entry-level device since its inception. With a design overhaul to match the iPad Air and iPad Pro models that came before it, the new iPad has an edge-to-edge display, flat sides and USB-C port.
Inside, it is powered by the Apple A14 Bionic chip and features a larger 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display. The move to a flat-sided design does not, however, mean compatibility with the Apple Pencil 2. Rather, the device maintains support for the original Apple Pencil. Like the iPad Air and iPad Mini, the new 10th-gen iPad supports Touch ID via the top button.
