Apple iPad 10 (2022) has been officially announced. Here’s everything you need to know about the new tablet.
The iPad 10 is the successor to the A13 Bionic chip-powered iPad 9 that was released last year. The latest iPad comes with an A14 Bionic chip and a USB-C charging port, making it the next iPad to ditch the Lighting adapter.
This model was announced alongside the iPad Pro (2022), which you can read more about by clicking the link before. Read on to find out everything you need to know about the latest iPad 10.
The Apple iPad 10 (2022) was officially announced on October 18, 2022, and users can now order the device from Apple’s website. The devices will ship from October 26 in the UK.
In terms of pricing, the iPad 10 is more expensive than its predecessor, starting at £499 for the 64GB variant and £679 for the 256GB variant.
Consumers who want the cellular model will also see another price increase, costing £679 for the 64GB model and £859 for the 256GB.
Apple also still sells the previous iPad 9 with a more affordable starting price of £369.
The Apple iPad 10 has undergone a major design overhaul, coming with an all-screen design as well as a 10.9-inch Liquid Retina LED backlit display. It will be available in four colors including blue, silver, pink and yellow.
The new iPad doesn’t have a Home button thanks to its larger screen and has instead opted to use the same Touch ID scanner as the iPad Air, which sits on the top of the device.
In terms of ports, it now features a USB-C connector instead of Apple’s own Lightning adapter. The USB-C port will make it easier for users to connect peripherals to their devices and boasts higher transfer speeds and the ability to connect to external displays. However, there’s no headphone jack on this model, which means you’ll have to use audio devices that connect via Bluetooth.
The iPad itself has an angular design with flat edges, looking more like a premium device than previous iPad generations.
Not surprisingly, Apple has updated the latest Apple iPad 10 with improved internals. It will be powered by the A14 Bionic chip, which comes with a 6-core processor, 4-core GPU and 16-core Neural Engine.
The rear camera is a 14MP wide-angle camera with f/1.4 aperture, offering Smart HDR, up to five times digital zoom and automatic image stabilization. It will be able to record video in 4K at 24/25/30 or 60fps, as well as Slo-mo support for 1080p at 120fps or 240fps.
The front camera is a 12MP ultra-wide sensor with a 122-degree field of view and an f/2.4 aperture. It comes with support for Smart HDR 3 and can record video at 1080p at 24, 30 or 60 frames per second.
What’s more, this iPad will come with iPadOS 16 installed, which means users will be able to take advantage of new features, including the ability to undo sending or edit iMessages and Stage Manager, which allows users to resize apps and view multiple windows in one view.
Looking at the new full-screen, 10.9-inch LED-backlit display, it has a resolution of 2360×1640, up to 500 nits of brightness, and supports True Tone. This iPad also has support for both the first-generation Apple Pencil and the Magic Keyboard Folio, meaning you can use it for both drawing and writing.
The cellular variant of the Apple iPad 10 will come with support for 5G connectivity and already supports Wi-Fi 6. There will be support for both physical SIM cards and eSIM.
