Along with a new iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max, Apple denounced a new iPad 7, that replaces a 6th gen iPad, aka a iPad 2018. How do a dual compare?
iPad 7 vs iPad 6 – Specs and features
The many apparent disproportion is arrangement distance – a new iPad 7th gen comes with a 10.2-inch screen, while a iPad 6th gen rocks a some-more normal 9.7-inch display.
A second pivotal disproportion is a fact that a new iPad 7 will let we bond ride drives and SD cards around a Lightning pier (provided you’ve got a right drives/adapters), a underline we saw arrive with a iPad Pro, though hasn’t trickled down to a cheaper iPad models – until now.
The Smart Connector of a new Apple iPad 7th gen will also let we bond a full-sized Smart Keyboard dock, too. This now means each full-size iPad Apple sells (sorry iPad Mini 5) works with both Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard.

Other than that, there are a lot of similarities between a iPad 7 and a iPad 6. The iPad 7’s 10.2-inch arrangement comes with a 2160 x 1620 resolution, that gives we a pixels-per-inch (ppi) count of 264 – roughly a same as what we get with a iPad 6’s 9.7-inch 2048 x 1536 display. Both displays exaggerate 500 nits of limit brightness.
Both a iPad 7 and iPad 6 are powered by a same processor – an Apple A10 Fusion – definition conjunction are on par, processor-wise with a iPad Pro, that facilities a some-more worldly A12X Bionic chip, and both underline support for a 1st gen Apple Pencil stylus. This means you’ll have to hang a stylus into a Lightning pier to assign it up.
In short, we can design that altogether opening to be roughly a same here, with a few pivotal differences – namely a bigger screen, a ability to send files from earthy storage and insert a bigger keyboard.

By comparison, a iPad 6 starts during £319 for a 32GB chronicle and £409 for a 128GB counterpart. An additional half an in. of shade space will cost we an additional £30-£40 apparently.
