Apple’s New iPad, and Why It Isn’t as Bad as Critics Are Saying?

Last updated on April 20, 2018 by Dotsquares

A month ago, during their Chicago Education event, Apple launched its newest device in its range of tablet computers – iPad (2018), it became pretty clear that the new device has some unmatchable merits to make it a fitting solution for scholars and students alike. However, the limited upgrades in the new device, which makes it similar to the previous model, has attracted certain criticism regarding the new tablet.

But when we see what Apple has really done with this newest release, it becomes clear that it is nothing but the raised expectations of the customers who have, by now, grown used to the latest versions of the company’s smartphone line iPhone 8 and iPhone X, which has made it a center of all criticism.

The new iPad is as just as good as its rivals, with a more utilitarian device upgraded with utmost efficiency.

The simplest yet the most powerful addition to the new device, the Apple pencil, can prove to be a real game changer. Its utility in the sphere of education is pretty evident, but so it is in other sectors that involve active creativity. It is clearly the best stylus that Apple has unveiled thus far.

Another prominent feature that set the new iPad apart from its predecessor is the A10 fusion chip that improves its CPU performance by 40% and graphics processing by up to 50%.

Below are some more specifications, those albeit being the same as that of iPad (2017), also create a more harmonious outlook for the device. Here is the list of major specifications of iPad (2018) or Apple 9.7.
