The new eighth-generation iPad featuring a stunning 10.2-inch Retina Display, advanced cameras, and all-day battery life. The new iPad price starting at $329 for general sale and $299 for education, and it’s now available to order, and shipping starts from this Friday.
“We’re excited to offer customers an even faster and more powerful experience with the eighth-generation iPad,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “With its beautiful 10.2-inch Retina display, the performance boost from the A12 Bionic, great cameras, and so much more, the new iPad is an incredible value at a time when, more than ever, our customers need powerful and versatile ways to work, play, learn, and connect with loved ones.”
The eighth-generation iPad delivers high performance with an A12 Bionic chip, with a 40 percent faster CPU and twice the GPU performance. Apple saying, new iPad is up to two times faster than the top-selling Windows laptop, up to three times faster than the top-selling Android tablet, and up to six times faster than the top-selling Chromebook. We see the A12 Bionic chip in 2019, featuring in Apple iPhone and iPad devices including iPhone XR, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPad Mini 2019, iPad Air 2019. Apple A12 Bionic chip features Neural Engine with an 8-core design and performs 5 trillion operations per second.
A12 Bionic chip with Neural Engine uses next-level machine learning capabilities, including people motion tracking in AR apps, enhanced photo editing, Siri performance, and more.

iPadOS 14 is available beginning Wednesday, September 16 means today, for all supported iPad models including the new eight-generation iPad.
iPadOS 14 brings new features and designs that take advantage of the unique capabilities of the iPad, its large Multi-Touch display, and versatile accessories. iPadOS 14 further integrates Apple Pencil into the iPad experience for better note-taking capabilities and new ways to work with handwritten notes. When taking notes on the iPad, Smart Selection uses on-device machine learning to distinguish handwriting from drawings, so handwritten text can easily be selected, cut, and pasted into another document as typed text using the same familiar gestures.
Shape recognition allows users to draw shapes that are made geometrically perfect and snap right into place when adding diagrams and illustrations in Notes. Data detectors work seamlessly with handwritten text, recognizing phone numbers, dates, addresses, and links, making it easy for users to perform actions like tapping a handwritten number to make a call.
iPadOS 14 also brings Scribble to iPad, allowing Apple Pencil users to handwrite directly in any text field, making actions like replying to a quick iMessage or searching in Safari fast and easy — all without ever needing to put Apple Pencil away. Scribble uses on-device machine learning to convert handwriting into typed text in real-time, so writing is always kept private and secure.
iPadOS 14 makes the iPad experience even more distinctive and powerful in other ways, including:
- All-new compact designs for incoming FaceTime and phone calls, Siri interactions, and Search to help users stay focused on the task at hand.
- Universal Search to quickly find practically anything, from locating and launching apps, to accessing contacts, files, and information, to getting answers to common questions about people or places.
- New sidebars for many apps including Photos and Files, and streamlined toolbars that consolidate controls into a single place, making them more useful than ever.
- Beautifully redesigned widgets that present timely information at a glance right on the Home Screen.
