Apple has just kicked off its iPhone event by talking about everything other than iPhones, including streaming, games, and the iPad. Turns out there's a new iPad coming, and this one has a 10.2-inch Retina display.
The new iPad 10.2 comes with iPadOS built in, and as we heard back at WWDC the operating system has been built for the iPad - so you have a more optimised experience. Not only does that mean better support for one-handed use, it also comes with a number of extra features like gestures and improved support for the Apple Pencil.
It comes with an A10 chipset, a better smart connector for keyboard support, an 8MP camera, AR support, a picture-in-picture mode, and comes with a body made from 100% recycled aluminium.
UK pricing is still TBA, but it's going to cost $329 in the US. Since the last 'cheap' iPad cost the same amount, we can probably expect the new one to cost around £319 when it comes to the UK.
The US price for this is $329, but here in the UK we have to pay £349. Something is a bit fucky there, and so much for being affordable. If you still want one pre-orders will open later today, and it'll ship at the end of the month.
