As expected, on Tuesday Apple updated the range of several innovations. About iPhone 7 (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition, new iPhone SE and straps for the Apple Watch we already told. The main novelty is to consider the new iPad.
Unfortunately, the full new gadget to call it will not work. This model replaced the iPad Air 2, which though was presented three years ago is quite relevant today. Although the new iPad is offered cheaper than its predecessor, without the drawbacks there has not been. In particular, the tablet is increased in thickness and weight compared to the iPad Air 2. The thickness of the iPad increased from 6.1 mm to 7.5 mm and a weight of from 437 to 469 g.
However, who has an older iPad, or not available at all, is more than a decent offer. Novelty is equipped with 9.7-inch display with a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels, that is, no change on the part of the panel, except that the new display was a little brighter.
Based iPad is the Apple A9 processor, while the iPad Air 2 is obsolete chip Apple A8X. RAM unknown, internal memory is offered a 32 or 128 GB. Camera remained the same: the front has a resolution of 1.2 megapixels and the main — 8 megapixels. Battery provides up to 10 hours of battery life. In the presence of a fingerprint scanner.
By and large, Apple has released an almost complete copy of the iPad Air 2 in 2014, but with a more powerful stuffing. The tablet moved to a new platform, but somehow became thicker and heavier. But it is cheaper. The basic version of the iPad is estimated at only 24 990 rubles. For a model with 128 GB asked 31 990 rubles.
Over the same modification with LTE modem will have to pay 34 990 and 41 990 rubles, respectively.
