This means you get almost the same performance as the latest iPad when you choose to get the previous model.

Thanks to its powerful chip, last year’s Apple iPad can handle most tasks you are likely to do on a tablet.

This new operating system replaces the iOS, and it offers more functions that make the iPad one step closer to being a true laptop replacement.
