Apple has officially unveiled its new 9.7-inch iPad, said to be Apple’s cheapest iPad to date. 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 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.
