The latest iPad comes with a lot of new things. First of all, its latest design and major internal upgrades make the Apple iPad 10th Generation outstanding, especially for the one looking for an affordable laptop replacement or wanting a fancy tablet. It is powered by an A14 Bionic chip that is going to enhance its overall performance.
The price of the base 64GB Wi-fi version is about Rs. 44,900 which seems too costly. Let’s find out do this price hike is justifiable or not!
The new iPad comes with a new look. It copies the base design of the iPad Air 5th Gen. It has a lightweight design and a strong build. The Touch ID sensor is placed on the power Key itself. Along with it you also get a USB-C port, which gives you the ease to charge it anywhere.
Apple had tried to reduce its cost by providing a non-laminated LCD which makes it a thick one. Just like its previous iPads, the iPad 10th Gen retains its magnetic POGO pins for accessory connectors. However, there is no use for it with the Folio case but it is the lifeline to the magic keyboard which comes with an extra cost of Rs. 24,900.
Apple offers an exclusive 10.9-inch IPS LCD on this new iPad that is surrounded by notably thick uniform bezels. This is not the best tablet display in this price segment, considering the absence of the DCI-P3 color gamut and the non-laminated panel. However, once you get into the habit of this display, this display is good enough for daily iPad usage, such as watching movies or using social media. Brightness levels are decent but the display looks dull in sunlight. It also supports first-generation apple pencil which means noticeable latency when drawing or writing.

The all-new iPad 10th Gen was able to manage all kinds of office-level multitasking with the Chrome browser handling 5-6 tabs, a page document, and apple music in the background. The iPad was also able to manage high-graphic games.
The processor can manage up to three iPad apps in the background. The trackpad cursor feels odd and a conventional arrow is more comfortable than a circle. Moreover, if you use MacBook for work, the integration between two devices is amazing. You can use Mac Keyboard and trackpad to control the iPad.
Apart from all these the iPad 10th Gen comes with impressive audio performance. There is a stereo speaker setup that is loud enough and produces good audio quality. These speakers are great for watching web series or youtube.
Apple iPad 10th Gen has a 12MP FaceTime Camera which means your online video calls will make you look normal with your eyes positioned at the center. The overall camera quality is decent, but it struggles with harsh lighting exposure. The rear camera is good for scanning documents. You can also record good-quality video clips on this device.
If you are opting for it as a calling device, it also supports 5G connectivity.
