The 10th generation iPad is the first device introduced by Apple. The biggest change here is the updated design which refers to the already known design From the last generation of iPad Pro And the iPad mini. Apple describes it as “frameless”. Well, anyone with reasonably good eyesight would find that overkill.
10th Generation iPad – New Design, But Old Pen
The new iPad has a larger device, 10.9 inch screen. Unfortunately, this is not a ProMotion screen, but a panel liquid retina With 60 Hz refresh. Her decision is 2360 x 1640 pixels. Maximum brightness in turn 500 rivets.

Another novelty, already known from the iPad Pro, is the app USB-C . portwho replaced him Lightning. Of course, this decision can be praised. The problem is that Apple hasn’t avoided a kind of silliness (the company has already made us accustomed to this kind of mishap). The thing is that the iPad 10th gen does not support the second generation Apple Pencil, only the first. This, in turn, can only be charged through the Lightning connector. So there was a situation where, in order to connect the pen to the iPad (for example to recharge the pen), we had to get a USB-C to Lightning adapter.
The tenth generation of iPad Apple chip 14 Bionic. This is an efficient unit, but not the latest, which leads, among other things, the iPhone 12. It does not change that RealityThat an Apple tablet shouldn’t have any major performance issues.
The device is also equipped with a front and back camera. Both are 12 megapixels. In the case of the webcam for video calls, there was also the Center Stage function. Another new feature is Bluetooth support in version 5.3.
