Description

The new Apple iPad 9.7-inch is again very slim and light, but this time comes powered by Apple's A9 chipset, which is an upgrade in horse power and frugality, and at a much lower starting price than the $499 we had until now. The new iPad 9.7" (yep, that's how Apple refers to it) comes with a brighter 9.7-inch Retina Display of the same 2048 x 1536 pixels resolution as before.
