Apple today announced a new ninth-generation iPad at its “California Streaming” event, which features an A13 Bionic chip offering up to 20% faster performance, a True-Tone display, an upgraded front camera, and more.
The new iPad features an upgraded 12MP ultra-wide front camera with Center Stage, which uses machine learning to automatically detect people in the frame, panning and zooming to keep them in view during FaceTime calls. The feature recognizes when other people join or exit a call, adjusting the camera position to fit everyone in.
Apple claims the new iPad is up to three times faster than the top-selling Chromebook and six times faster than the top-selling Android tablets.
All models will ship with iPadOS 15, which introduces a new Home Screen design with integrated widgets and the App Library, system-wide fast note-taking with Quick Note, new features for FaceTime calls, a redesigned Safari experience, new tools to reduce distractions, and more.
The new iPad starts at $329, or $299 for education customers. All models can be ordered starting today on the Apple online store with availability starting next week.Tag: September 2021 Apple Event
