Apple has long been at the forefront of delivering a comprehensive user-friendly experience with their devices. Their recently-announced 7th-generation iPad aims to add on to that accessibility.
The new iPad comes with a 10.2-inch Retina display for easy viewing all around. When coupled with the A10 Fusion chip, it provides you with a smooth experience while using it, be it catching up on shows on Netflix, or gaming on the new Apple Arcade.
Keeping in line with its recent environmentally-friendly collaboration with Elysis, the 7th-gen iPad is all decked out in 100% recycled aluminum, making it weigh as light and be just as tough as its predecessors.
This also marks the debut of the iPadOS, which, like the macOS for iMacs and MacBooks, aims to deliver an experience uniqiue to the iPad.
The Home screen sees a visual overhaul, which actually frees up more space for apps, as well as giving you easy access to news, weather and your personal calendar. Updates to Split View, combined with the new Slide Over mechanic, allows for easier multitasking and more customisation on how you want to operate on the iPad.
If that’s not enough, updates to the Apple Pencil (sold separately, but a favourite of ours on the iPad Mini) have opened up more avenues for creativity and productivity. Additional gestures such as sending entire webpages and documents by simply swiping the Apple Pen at the bottom of the screen, combined with a redesigned tool palette make for easier usage.
The 7th-gen iPad will launch in Singapore on September 30 in all Apple Authorised Resellers and telco carriers across the island. It will come in Silver, Space Grey and Gold finishes in 32GB and 128GB variants. Prices start at S$499 for the Wi-Fi model and S$649 for the Wi-Fi + Cellular model.
Pre-orders are available today on the official store page.
Marion has a serious RPG addiction. Sometimes it bleeds into real life; he forgets to sleep because he thinks he has a Witcher’s body clock. Forgive him in advance if he suddenly blurts out terms such as “Mind Flayer” and “Magic Missile”, because never once does he stop thinking about his next Dungeons & Dragons game.
