In a marked departure in nomenclature, the new iPad is not called the iPad Air; it is simply called the Apple iPad. While the new iPad is not a substantial improvement over its predecessors, one notable feature is the price of the new device. At just $329, this is the cheapest full-sized iPad to have been launched. The new iPad The new 9.7-inch Apple iPad is not much different on the outside when compared to the existing iPads. The innards have been improved to ensure better performance. To sum, a slightly aged but still pretty decent A9X processor powers the new iPad. Apple has also worked on improving the native storage options. Two variations are available, one with 32GB of internal storage and another one with 128GB of internal storage. However, users who were waiting for a 256GB will be disappointed this time. The new Apple iPad promises a much brighter display with an unchanged screen resolution at 2,048 x 1,536. The iPad’s cameras remain the same, however. An 8MP rear camera and a 1.2MP FaceTime camera at the front will provide a decent, if not spectacular, FaceTime experience. Apple iPad Price The new Apple iPad is most eagerly awaited for its low price. Indeed, the price may well be the deciding factor when a user considers upgrading from their existing iPad to the newly released iPad. Available from March 24, the new iPad will start from $329 for the 32GB WiFi version and $429 for the 128GB model. You will have to shell out an additional $130 more if you want the LTE version of the two variants. The price is clearly a plus point of the new 9.7-inch iPad. For context, the iPad Mini is more expensive than the bigger cousin; an iPad Mini 4 with 128GB of storage comes for $399.
