A tablet is a device that enhances the portability feature and also the efficiency of the smartphone. The Mac Tablet, also known as the Apple iPad, is one of the frontrunners in this category of devices. After multiple iterations on the initial iPad, Apple has released the latest model, which is the Apple iPad 9.7-inch. The latest model is thicker and weighs more than its predecessor, the iPad Air 2.
The iPad 9.7-inch is heavier than its counterparts, the iPad Pro 9.7 and iPad Air 2, with the dimensions of 240.00 x 169.50 x 7.50 (height, weight, and depth) and weighs 478 grams, with it being even heavier than the original iPad. The screen size hasn’t changed and remains 9.7 inches with a 2048×1536 display resolution. The screen is also brighter and a washed-out version than of its previous model as Apple has done away with the lamination layer, which is supposed to enhance the reflectiveness of the screen.
This iPad is also equipped with a more powerful battery at 32.9 watt-hours. This allowed a user to use this device for around 5 hours and 15 minutes of video streaming using Wi-Fi at maximum brightness of the screen.
The processor in the new iPad is the A10 which is an upgrade from the Air 2. The on-screen graphic performance that was quantified by prominent tests observed an increase around 20%.
The Wi-Fi performance is impressive as the Air 2’s original dual-band Wi-Fi chipset has been upgraded to a global, single LTE model in the iPad 9.7-inch.
The other prominent features of the iPad 9.7-inch include the following:
- The touch ID fingerprint scanner is on the physical home button; this makes it serve two purposes.
- There are dual speakers on the panel at the bottom as well as a lightning jack.
- The top of the panel also has a headphone jack.
