Apple launched the 2018 edition of the iPad 9.7 a few months back. Things are a bit different with this edition of the device as the iPad is Apple’s cheapest yet. After four months of the international unveiling, the tablet has finally made its way into Nepal.
iPad 9.7 (2018) Specifications
The iPad 9.7 (2018) comes with a 9.7-inch display that has 4:3 aspect ratio. This IPS LCD display has 1536 x 2048 pixels resolution and is protected by a scratch-resistant glass. Last year’s iPad also came in the same form factor with the same display quality.
In terms of the internals, this device has an upgrade over its predecessor as it is powered by the quad-core A10 Fusion processor. Although Apple’s new smartphones already feature the A11 Bionic chipset, the A10 is no slouch. It is a capable performer, and alongside the timely updates the iPad receives, you can expect the user experience to be top-notch. This tablet comes with 2 GB of RAM and PowerVR Series7XT Plus GPU. Storage wise, the iPad 9.7 (2018) is available in two units, 32 GB and 128 GB.
This device features an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera that has an f/2.4 aperture. Likewise, the front camera measures 1.2-megapixel and has an f/2.2 aperture, HDR and shoots HD videos @30fps.
The iPad 9.7 (2018) has a front-mounted fingerprint scanner that is primarily a home button. It also has a gyro sensor for anyone that’s into VR, although using a 9.7-inch device for that could be a bit strange. It is available in both the WiFi-only and Cellular variant.
The iPad 9.7 (2018) is powered by a 32.4 Wh battery which, according to Apple, provides a 10-hour talk time. There are stereo speakers on the device, and you can always expect it to shine like the ones on its predecessors have.
