Apple event is taking place right now at the Steve Jobs Theater, Cupertino, California, US. And just minutes ago, the tech giant announced that it’s updating its entry-level iPad along with its own dedicated operating system iPadOS.
The iPad lineup used to be the company’s most favorite product line, but its reputation dropped for a couple of years before going on the rise again. Consumers are taking longer to upgrade their tablets and switching to larger-screen Macs and iPhones instead. To address the freefall, in late 2015, Apple released the iPad Pro, which works with specialized keyboards as well as the stylus pencil. And in 2018, it began selling a more budget tablet for schoolers.
This year, Apple's tablet is getting iPadOS. The new operating system includes new features made for a larger display including multitasking, new UI gestures for copying, cutting, and pasting as well as undoing actions. Additionally, iPadOS gives the new device several exclusives: enhanced file management, expanded Apple Pencil functionality, and a new Safari version to give users a web-browsing experience closer to desktop devices. iPadOS will come to all generations of Apple iPad.
This year, the 7th-generation iPad will pack the A10 Fusion chipset that allows the tablet to work twice faster than PCs. In addition, the 10.2-inch display will satisfy any user that look forward to larger screens for wider view. Notably, it is made from 100 percent recycled aluminum so your experience feels complete with ethical electronics use.
At the price of Rs 23,645 ($329), the new iPad is available for orders today and will start shipping on September 30.
