Reviews

We just spent some time with Apple’s new $329 iPad, announced here in Chicago at its education event. The new iPad is very familiar. It has the same basic 9.7-inch screen size, bezels, Touch ID sensor, button placement, and cameras. The big new features are Apple Pencil support, which works the same as the iPad Pro, and an update to the A10 processor.
