A tablet that performs better than before
The main difference for the 2021 iPad 9 is the increase in raw power. The old model was already good enough for most uses thanks to the A12 Bionic chip, but this newer version is even smoother and faster to perform the various tasks with the SoC that equips the eleventh generation iPhones, of its name. A13 Bionic. You will then be able to enjoy better graphics in your games and above all a better longevity for the product, which will support future updates much more easily.
Apple has finally thought of changing the sensor duo by now integrating a 12 megapixel camera on the front, against 8 megapixels previously. The quality of your selfies is therefore necessarily improved, but also the video, if you use your tablet to call in video via FaceTime, or other, for example. Additionally, it also allows it to add the Centered Frame feature already seen on the iPad Pro and iPad mini. This is very practical, since you will always be in the center of the screen even if you move a little, and the image will even adapt live if someone joins you next to you during the call.
The same design and the same autonomy
Except with the technical sheet in front of the eyes, it is almost impossible to differentiate this model with the 2020 iPad, as the two tablets are so similar. Indeed, the design has not changed for a long time and it is not the 2021 version that is an exception to the rule, since we once again find large borders, with the Home button at the bottom equipped with Touch ID to unlock access via fingerprint. The Retina screen still offers a 10.2-inch diagonal with True Tone compatibility, not to mention the possibility of using the Apple Pencil (sold separately).
If there is another element that does not change with the iPad, it is autonomy. So much the better, because it has always been very good on the affordable Apple tablet. We are talking about ten hours of use, since it took us 4 hours on Netflix to lose 40% of the battery. So if you’re not H24 on it, you can use it for several days, especially since the iPad holds up well in standby mode. As far as recharging is concerned, count a little less than 3 hours to go from 0 to 100% with the charger supplied with it.
