The upcoming seventh-generation iPad comes jam-packed with new features after the series has largely remained the same for some years.
It will sport a 10-inch screen, replacing the sixth-generation’s 9.7-inch display. If taking selfies on your iPad is your flex, you’ll be glad to know it comes with a 8MP camera with HDR so you’ll come out looking reasonably crisp given it’s a tablet.
The new iPad now fully supports a smart keyboard if that’s what you feel previous generations were missing.

The 32GB model is retailing for $529 for the WiFi model and $729 for the Wi-Fi and cellular model when it drops later this month. It’s bigger companion, the 128GB starts at $689 for the WiFi model and $889 for the WiFi and cellular model.
It comes in silver, gold and space grey.
