by on14 September 2021

New chipsets, better cameras, and more

Apple has kicked off its California Streaming event with two new iPads, including the updated iPad 10.2 and the iPad mini.

Both iPads have got a decent update, including new chipsets, storage, cameras, and more.

The new entry-level iPad 10.2 is here

The new iPad 10.2 got a welcomed update in the form of a new chipset, better front camera, and larger storage. On the other hand, Apple has decided to keep the same design, with the same display size and bezels, making it compatible with accessories for the older iPad 10.2.

Apple gave the new iPad 10.2 the A13 Bionic chipset, which makes it 20 percent faster compared to the A12 Bionic in the older iPad 10.2. The rear camera remained the same but will get certain benefits from the updated ISP in the new chipset. The front camera, on the other hand, got a big update with a 12-megapixel sensor behind a 120-degree ultrawide lens.

The new iPad 10.2 also got a storage improvement so it now starts with 64GB. It will be available in Space Gray and Silver color options and its price starts at $329 for the WiFi-only model and $459 for the cellular one. It will be available as of September 24th.

The new iPad mini 6 is a neat little tablet

The iPad mini got a complete overhaul, as it now has flat edges and curved corners. It has the same dimensions as the older iPad mini, but, it has a larger 8.3-inch screen, mostly due to the lack of a home button/Touch ID, as the fingerprint sensor is now moved to the power button. The screen is a TrueTone one with 500nits of brightness.

The rest of the updates include stereo speakers, magnets on the side for attaching Apple Pencil, 12-megapixel main rear camera behind an f/1.8 lens, and a 12-megapixel front camera behind an ultrawide lens.

The new iPad mini 6 got the Apple A15 Bionic chipset, which gave it a good 40 percent CPU performance improvement and 80 percent GPU improvement compared to the older iPad mini. Thanks to the new chipset, the cellular model got 5G, and Apple switched from the Lightning port to USB-C one.

The iPad mini 6 will be available in Space Gray, Pink, Purple, and Starlight color options and starts at $499 for the WiFi-only model and $649 for the cellular one. It will be available from 64GB to 256GB storage options and will be available as of September 24th as well.
