I just spent some time with Apple’s latest seventh-generation iPad. It’s not the biggest or the fastest model in the lineup, but at $329, it’s probably the most bang for the buck you can get. The new 10.2-inch iPad, announced today at Apple’s annual iPhone event at its Cupertino headquarters, replaces last year’s entry-level 9.7-inch iPad, and adds support for the first-generation Apple Pencil (the one with the fiddly cap and silly charging), the Smart Keyboard case, and an A10 processor.

That puts this new iPad in the company of the iPad Air: it has a bigger screen, support for the Pencil and Keyboard, and it will run iPadOS, which adds multitasking upgrades, gesture changes, and other productivity-focused tweaks to the UI coming with its tablet OS overhaul.

iPad 10 . 2 - inch . Like a computer. The new iPad combines the power and capability of a computer with the ease of use and versatility you’d never expect from one. Sign in with Apple lets you sign in securely to apps and websites with the Apple ID you already have.

The 10.5- inch iPad Pro is slightly larger than the 9.7- inch iPad Pro it replaces, but the size and weight difference is hardly noticeable, especially when you Apple was able to introduce a 20 percent larger display by shrinking the iPad ' s bezels by 40 percent. The iPad ' s display has an awesome new feature

But it’s also got years-old A10 Fusion chip inside, and its bezeled design and Touch ID authentication might be feel outdated to those who’ve become accustomed to Apple’s flagship edge-to-edge displays and facial recognition tech. This iPad also comes with a Lightning connector instead of the more flexible USB-C port on the iPad Pro. Oh, and there’s a headphone jack.

Using it for a few minutes, it’s pretty clear what Apple’s trying to do here: there are now iPads with Pencil and keyboard support at a huge range of price points, and this new iPad (with, presumably, the added functionality and desktop-class browser in iOS 13) should stack up as a powerful, flexible competitor to a Chromebook or cheap Windows laptop.

But nothing about this design or spec sheet is ultra-cutting edge: it’s a bunch of Apple’s best stuff from years past, in a familiar case with a slightly bigger screen. It’s hard to ask for more at $329 — but that’s probably the point.

10.2-INCH IPAD SPECS

  • Wi-Fi model weight: 1.07 pounds (483 grams)
  • Wi-Fi + Cellular model weight: 1.09 pounds (493 grams)

  • Embedded M10 coprocessor
  • 8-megapixel rear camera
  • 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera

The 5 biggest announcement from today’s Apple event.
It always seems like the buildup to Apple's annual iPhone event lasts forever, and that's because details surrounding Apple's next-generation iPhone models leak so far in advance.
