The iPad is perhaps the most popular tablet worldwide. Apple, since the launch of the first iPad, has refreshed the lineup regularly by making incremental design changes and hardware improvements. In 2022, the iPad lineup is now bigger than ever. There are the top-of-the-line iPad Pros (M2) right at the top, below which sits the iPad Air 2022 (Review). This year, Apple also launched the iPad 10th generation but rather than replacing the iPad 9th generation model, it's a new addition that sits between the lowest-priced iPad and the Air.
The iPad 10th generation is a successor to the iPad 9th generation model, which was launched in 2021. It comes with a new design and gets many new upgrades. Apple has also significantly increased the price in India.
The new iPad starts at Rs. 44,900 for the Wi-Fi variant. It comes with a 10.9-inch Liquid Retina Display. The bezels are slightly narrower too. Apple has moved the 12-megapixel front camera to the right bezel. There is an 8-megapixel rear camera as well.
Under the hood, the iPad (2022) comes with an A14 Bionic SoC. This chip, although two years old, still offers good performance. It also packs a 28.6WHr battery, which is claimed to offer 10 hours of video playback. The Lightning port is now replaced by a USB Type-C (USB 2.0) port.
The iPad runs iPadOS 16 out of the box. It comes with many new features but does not support Stage Manager, which is currently only available for iPad models using Apple’s M-series SoCs.
