Now just Apple Sells a tablet with a physical home button, thick borders around the screen, and a lightning port: the new ninth-generation iPad. It’s the only one in the lineup that supports the older First General Apple Pencil.
You might be wondering why you want features on this date? The new iPad Mini has a USB-C port, for example, you can recharge the tablet with the same cable for your MacBook. Mini’s support for the second-gen Apple Pencil means it’s an easy way to save and recharge. But the answer is simple: price. With the price of the new iPad mini rising to 4 4, this ২ 929 machine is now the cheapest iPad.
This year’s upgrades are smaller সেখানে there’s a better processor and an improved front camera. But unless you’re looking for an iPad to easily empower you by editing 4K video footage and batches of photos, or you’re relying on it as your ultimate sketchbook, this model remains the best option for most people. It handles it all Normal The works are perfectly good. You know, word processing, streaming TV shows and movies, reading ebooks and textbooks, and taking notes. It’s not glamorous or tempting, but your wallet will thank you infinitely.
Form over function
The ninth-generation iPad didn’t get the same conversion as this year’s iPad mini. Apple recycles the old design by leaving the headphone jack and home button (including Touch ID). It’s still relatively lightweight, so it’s easy to carry, and because of its thick bezels around the screen, it felt a little safer in my hand when I was using it.
Apple has finally brought its True Tone technology to the 10.2-inch screen. Like the iPhone, it automatically adjusts the screen brightness and color temperature depending on the lighting conditions around you. This is a nice touch. You get more storage than the previous model, but 64GB is still a bit lacking.
More importantly, the 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera has been upgraded to a 12-megapixel ultraviolet sensor. The quality is remarkably good, but the placement of the camera is still awkward. During a video call in landscape orientation, you are forced to look to the side, which seems unusual.
To try to deal with this, Apple Center includes stage support as you get the new iPad Mini and iPad Pro. This feature forces the camera to be framed when you move around a room, and it will zoom out when it can recognize multiple people. It’s still not a solution to installing that weird side camera, but it’s easy when doing double duty video calling and cooking at the same time with your parents. You never have to worry about leaving the frame.
That said, it’s not perfect. I was on a video call on the iPad with my editor, but when my roommate entered the living room and sat on a couch in the background, the camera zoomed out to include them in the frame – just the opposite of what I wanted.
Equally annoying is that this iPad still doesn’t have a fully layered display, which means there’s a gap between the glass and the screen. It doesn’t seem so precise to write, so if you plan on using an Apple pencil Lots, You probably better upgrade to another model.
