California-based technology giant Apple unveiled a cheaper iPad model at an ‘educational event’ on Tuesday.
The new model comes with a 9.7-inch retina display screen, has an eight megapixel rear camera, features an aluminium unibody and will have an LTE option. It will be powered by an Apple A10 chip.
It comes with a regular TouchID, and not a FaceID like iPhone X. The devices have a battery backup of 10 hours.
The advanced sensors in the new iPad will be able to ‘deliver immersive augmented reality and ease of use and all-day battery life,’ Apple claims.
The device will come with Apple Pencil — a stylus — which will cost an extra Rs 7,600. The Pencil will come with its own set of apps. Pencil had been introduced with iPad Pro earlier.
