The device will have a more powerful computing chip and extensive new software features aimed at teachers and students but keep the existing starting price of $299 for students and $329 for the general public.

Apple announced it will be offering a cheaper third-party stylus for the new iPad.

Keeping up with the specification improvements is the iPad's internals.

First up is Apple's latest iPad.

The iPad (2018) comes with a 9.7 inches retina (2048×1536) IPS display with 264 PPI pixel density. Some sources are saying that Apple will also release new versions of its Pages, Numbers, and Keynote apps that support the Apple Pencil, which means iPad owners will be able to use the Pencil to write within these apps. The display has an oleophobic coating to resist fingerprint smudges. It can shoot full HD videos and slow motion videos at 120fps. On the front it has a 1.2-megapixel camera with f/2.2 aperture.

Apple did not reveal details about its next generation iPhone on Tuesday. The refreshed iPad is powered by the A10 Fusion chip which is used on the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus phones. Unlike most of the other tablets by Apple, this is a low-priced device.

The biggest improvement here over the old model is a much faster processor. The new iPad is a portable device that's very easy to use.

Apple has unveiled a new iPad targeted squarely at education in a bid to take on the popularity of the Google Chromebook in schools. It comes with a 32.4-watt-hour rechargeable lithium-polymer battery. Since then, Apple has kept its Pencil support limited to only the iPad Pro series. Another big highlight is support for Augmented Reality applications. Chromebooks have several advantages with a sales price as low as $200, a keyboard and a skinny operating system that updates automatically when connected to the internet. Apple is selling the pencil separately for $99 and promised free Personal Setup for every customer buying from any of its retail stores. The 32GB with Wi-Fi model will be available in India for Rs 28,000. For example, the wifi+cellular model will set you back by ₹38,600 for the unit with 32GB internal storage.

Its Retina display, powerful chip, enhanced cameras and advanced sensors, including a gyroscope and accelerometer for accurate motion tracking, are created to support the next generation of AR apps.
