Alongside the Apple Watch Series 6, Apple Watch SE, New iPad Air, Apple also unveiled its brand new iPad. The iPad 8th Gen. keeps the older design and the Touch ID sensor, but brings a newer processor for faster performance. The new tablet uses the A12 Bionic processor that debuted in 2018 with the iPhone XS and the iPhone XR.
Apart from the processor, nothing has changed with the new iPad. It still uses the same single rear-facing camera and FaceTime HD camera. We would’ve liked it to feature an improved camera and a USB Type-C port instead of the dead old Lightning Port. Nevertheless, let us have a look at the iPad 8th Gen’s pricing and features.

Apple iPad 8th Gen. Features, Specifications
The new iPad features a 10.2-inch Retina Display with IPS LCD panel, 2160×1,620 pixels resolution, 3:4 aspect ratio, 500 nits brightness, and scratch-resistant glass protection. It runs iPadOS 14 and comes equipped with the 7nm Apple A12 Bionic processor. It has 3GB RAM and 32GB/128GB of internal storage. We would’ve liked Apple to offer at least 64GB of storage space in the base variant, considering that 32GB won’t be enough for most people these days.
It has a FaceTime HD front-facing camera and an 8MP rear-facing camera with autofocus and Full HD video recording at 30fps. The 8th Gen. iPad features stereo speakers and it is compatible with the first-generation Apple Pencil. Thankfully, it has a 3.5mm headphone jack, but it still uses the Lightning Port for data transfer. There’s a Touch ID fingerprint reader, which means the tablet has thick bezels at the top and bottom portions of its front facia. There are slightly slimmer bezels on the two remaining sides.
Connectivity features include LTE (only in LTE variants), GPS, dual-band Wi-Fi b/g/n/ac, and Bluetooth 4.2. It has an accelerometer, barometer, compass, and gyro. It is powered by a 32.4WHr battery that can last up to ten hours of mixed-use on a single charge. It has support for both the nano-SIM card slot and an eSIM.
