Apple iPad 6th Generation Wi-Fi Review and Features

The iPad 9.7-inch (officially iPad (6th generation)) is a tablet computer designed, developed, and marketed by Apple Inc. It was announced on March 27, 2018, during an education-focused event at Lane Tech High School in Chicago and is the successor to the 5th generation, upgraded with the Apple A10 Fusion SoC and support for styluses such as Apple Pencil. The iPad is also marketed towards educators and schools.

Since its introduction, this model iPad has been used by Apple Retail employees at the Genius Bar and by other employees to assist with customer queries. Since September 2019, the seventh-generation iPad has replaced the 2018 iPad. This is the last iPad to have the original 9.7-inch Retina display.

The iPad shipped with iOS 11.3 and had the iWork suite of apps preinstalled and included Apple Pencil stylus support.

The iPad’s hardware is nearly identical to the previous generation, except for a few upgrades, such as Apple Pencil and stylus support and an upgraded processor, the Apple A10 Fusion. It is available in three colors: Silver, Space Gray, and a new Gold colour to match the updated colour introduced with the iPhone 8.

The iPad has 2 gigabytes of RAM. It is 7.5mm thick. The iPad is available in 32 and 128-GB storage options. Unlike the iPad Pro, the iPad does not feature a laminated display.
