Last Updated 14 October 2019, 12:06 IST

After the iPhone 11 and the Watch Series 5, Apple has launched the new iPad (7th gen) in India on 14 October.

The new generation iPad sports a 10.2-inch LED-backlit Retina display with nearly 3.5 million pixels. It offers a wide viewing angle, and support Apple Pencil (1st gen) stylus.

Under-the-hood, the iPad is powered by the Apple A10 Fusion chipset with an M10 co-processor. It also comes with an 8MP camera and a big battery, which is capable of offering 10 hours of surfing the web (on Wi‑Fi), watching a video or listening to music.

The iPad (7th gen) is the first Apple device to come with dedicated iPadOS 13 out-of-the-box. It promises to offer PC-like experience in all aspects such as interface, multi-screen options, writing a document, creating powerpoint presentations, edit videos, watching multimedia content and web browsing. With the iPadOS, Apple wants to make the iPads a true laptop alternative.

Other eligible iPads have already received the iPadOS update via a software update.

Apple iPad comes in silver, space gray and gold colour options with 32GB and 128GB storage configurations. The iPad price starts at Rs 29,900 for the Wi-Fi model and Rs 40,900 for the Wi-Fi + Cellular variant.
