Apple has launched the new iPad with an all-screen design featuring a 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display. The new iPad is powered by the A14 Bionic chip, which, according to the tech giant, delivers faster performance while still providing all-day battery life.

For the first time on any iPad, the front-facing camera is now located along the landscape edge. Whether users are on a FaceTime call or recording a video for social media, they will always be looking right toward the camera, Apple says in a statement.

The landscape Ultra Wide front camera with a 12MP sensor and 122-degree field of view supports Center Stage, which automatically pans and zooms to keep users in view as they move around. An updated 12MP back camera captures photos and 4K video.

The new iPad is available to order starting October 18, with availability in stores beginning October 26.

The new iPad features an all-screen design in four finishes — blue, pink, yellow, and silver. The 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display extends to the edges, so users have even more screen area for apps, games, and having fun on iPad — all in nearly the same size as the previous generation.

The new Liquid Retina display provides a visual experience with 2360x1640-pixel resolution, nearly 4 million pixels, 500 nits of brightness, and True Tone technology, claims Apple.

The new iPad is up to 5x faster than the best-selling Android tablet, claims Apple.

With new support for Wi-Fi 6, connections are 30% faster on the new iPad than the 802.11ac Wi-Fi supported on the previous generation, says Apple. Cellular models with 5G allow iPad to reach peak speeds of up to 3.5Gbps in ideal conditions, it adds.

Wi-Fi models of the new iPad are available with a starting price of ₹44,900, and Wi-Fi + Cellular models start at ₹59,900. The new iPad, in 64GB and 256GB configurations, comes in blue, pink, yellow, and silver.

Apple Pencil (1st generation) is compatible with the new iPad. A new USB-C to Apple Pencil Adapter is required for pairing and charging and is included in the box with a new version of Apple Pencil (1st generation) for ₹9,500.

For existing owners of Apple Pencil (1st generation), the USB-C to Apple Pencil Adapter is sold separately for ₹900.

The new Magic Keyboard Folio designed for the new iPad is available for ₹24,900 and comes in white.

"With a large 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display, powerful A14 Bionic chip, a first-ever landscape front camera, fast wireless connectivity, USB-C, and support for incredible accessories like the new Magic Keyboard Folio, the new iPad delivers more value, more versatility," says Greg Joswiak, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing.
