Apple’s iPad and iPad Mini have gotten a major upgrade.

Earlier today at the Apple Event, the tech giant announced an all-new iPad model that will feature a 10.2-inch Retina display with True Tone, a 12MP Ultra Wide front camera with Centre Stage, support for Apple Pencil 1st Generation and Smart Keyboard, the intuitive iPadOS 15, and twice the storage of the previous generation. 

The new iPad is fitted with the new A13 bionic chip which supports 20% faster CPU, GPU and neural engine compared to last year’s model. The new iPad is also three times faster than a Chromebook and six times faster than an Android tablet.

That’s not all, the biggest upgrade lies in the iPad’s camera. The rear camera has an improved auto-focus and low-light photo-taking. The front camera, on the other hand, has a 12MP ultra-wide camera and users’ favourite center stage feature that is now available on iPad that makes Zoom and Webex meetings as well as content making on apps like TikTok a lot more engaging.

The new iPad also features True Tone and supports new accessories like the thin and light keyboard and the first-generation Apple Pencil.

The biggest upgrade, however, can be found in Apple’s littlest iPad, the iPad Mini. The all-new iPad mini receives a complete redesign – an all-screen design, narrow borders, and elegant rounded corners. With an all-screen design, the iPad Mini now relocates the touch ID to the top of the iPad Mini.

Just like the new generation of iPad, the iPad Mini boasts a 40% jump in CPU performance and an 80% leap in GPU performance – all thanks to the new A13 bionic chip too. The neural engine is also two times faster compared to the previous model and has improved connectivity with USB C connectivity that allows for 10 times faster data transfers than its predecessor as well as 5G connectivity.

Camera upgrades can also be seen. The iPad Mini has an updated Ultra Wide front camera with a new 12MP sensor and a much larger field of view for the Centre Stage experience.

The back camera now features a 12MP sensor with Focus Pixels and a larger aperture to capture sharp, vivid photos. The back camera also features a True Tone flash that improves night photography too.

The iPad comes in space grey and silver and retails for S$499. Wi-Fi + Cellular models start at S$699. The iPad Mini on the other hand, comes in new colours – purple, pink, starlight and space grey – and retails for S$749. Wi-Fi + Cellular models start at S$979.

Both the iPad and iPad Mini is available to order beginning today on Apple’s website and in the Apple Store app in 28 countries and regions, including the US, with availability beginning Friday, 24 September 2021.
