Hands-on with Apple's new 9.7-inch iPad

Tablets
The newest iPad is meant for everyone. It's also meant for classrooms and kids and probably your home. At $329, it's a replacement to the best selling 9.7 inch model that came out last March. This version supports iPad pencil. The pressure-sensitive stylus that was previously an iPad Pro only accessory. [UNKNOWN] It comes in two storage types, 32 gigabytes or 128 gigabytes for $429. We saw it for the first time at the Lane Tech School in Chicago and it looks like an iPad. The newest iPad almost seems like the 9.7 inch iPad Pro that was sold back in 2016. There are some changes. This iPad has an A10 processor, eight megapixel, ten ADP rear camera and faster LTE if you feel like activating the sim. It doesn't have a side smart connector like iPad Pro models which means you can't support those smart connector docks and keyboards but new accessories for schools like Logitech's rugged keyboard case which connects via lightning Are available. The iPad works with the still the same Apple Pencil for drawing or for marking up documents in new iWork app improvements, notably pages. Logitech's also making a $49 crayon built off Pencil technology that's not pressure sensitive, but it's made to work between iPads easily in a school setting. Without bluetooth pairings. Apple's aiming at creating apps to make the most of the iPad's native, creative capabilities. Coding apps, AR tools, since this iPad another support AR kit and using Apple clips, garage band and other apps for music, video and drawing. The iPad isn't a whole new machine where Really. It's a better priced variant on the pro. And Apples leaning heavily on educational support with newly announced apps to deploy these tablets in schools. But it may very well be the best iPad to buy for families and the best budget iPad ever. Stay tuned for a full review.
