Apple announces 7th generation iPad
Apple is updating its entry-level iPad with a bigger screen and better processor.
It was somewhat expected that Apple might update its iPad family at its "By Innovation Only" event, and that's precisely what it's done, announcing a new entry-level iPad model.
The new 7th generation iPad features a 10.2-inch display, and runs on the Apple A10 Fusion chip, bringing the power of the entry-level model up quite a notch. It will also feature compatibility with Apple's connected keyboard range for iPad, although it's not clear at the launch if this will be a new iPad-only keyboard or the existing iPad Pro models.
You can pick up the new iPad in silver, space grey or gold, with both 32GB and 128GB configurations available.
The new iPads will ship from 30 September with pricing starting at $529 for the Wi-Fi model and $729 for the Wi-Fi + Cellular model.
