New iPad Is The Cheapest Yet

Monday, March 27th, 2017 by | Filed Under: Hardware & Peripherals, In The News, iOS

Apple’s latest iPad has a lot going for it, but for a lot of consumers, the attraction will be the price, the lowest starting price ever for an iPad. At $329, this 9.7-inch tablet is priced more along the lines of an iPad mini or a high-end Android.

Let’s take a look at what it offers. The 8.7″ Retina display features a 2058 x 1536 resolution.

The 64-Bit A9 chip is not the latest generation of processors, but it should be plenty fast enough for streaming and playing games. Apple also promises that this tablet has up to a 10-hour battery life. (though I wouldn’t count on that if you’re watching 10 hours of streaming video or playing a game.)

The new model features Touch ID to allow you to lock your device and open with a fingerprint. You can also lock apps or use touch ID to make purchases through Apple Pay.


The tablet offers an 8MP rear-facing camera for taking photos or shooting HD video and 1.2 MP front-facing camera to use with apps like FaceTime.

The tablet has a slim profile, only 7.5 mm thick (around 1/3 of an inch) and it weighs just one pound.

If you’re willing to pay a little extra you can purchase the WiFi + Cellular model. With the addition of this model, there is no more iPad Air offered by Apple. There’s simply iPad.
