iPad 10.2(2019): DESIGN

The 10.2-inch iPad is thicker, but its body is the same length and width. It also uses the same magnetic Smart Connecter Keyboard Cover and Pencil accessories from Apple. The smart connector lets to snap a BlueTooth keyboard the iPad or any other accessory with ease. The new tablet doesn’t get any water or dust resistant specification which questions it’s durability a bit. Despite using the same body, keeping the bezels thick, the iPad has gone up in weight.

iPad 10.2(2019): DISPLAY

This year’s iPad gets a bigger 10.2-inch display. It is A Retina IPS LCD with and 2160 x1620 px screen resolution and a bit low 268 ppi. The bigger screen doesn’t feel much like an upgrade but still, it feels nicer as it now has more brightness. It is a big screen for the price which is ample vivid and feels nice to use outdoors. The Touch ID is still there. The bigger display means a bigger enclosure, which is in the form bezels around the display.

iPad 10.2(2019): SOFTWARE

The entry-level iPad 10.2 gets the new improved os specially made for iPads, the iPadOS 13. The new upgraded software gives a secret edge to this new iPad. The iPadOS makes it easier to interpret the iPad as Apple’s “low-cost laptop”. People looking for a more portable alternative for their laptop as their 2-in-1 device, will not be disappointed with it’s handy and awesome features. The biggest improvements in iPadOS include the ability to use multiple apps in the Slide Over menu, a revamped home screen layout that includes the Today View widgets, desktop-grade Safari, and multi-window apps.

iPad 10.2(2019): PERFORMANCE

The new iPad is powered by the A10 Fusion processor, which doesn’t provide any boost in its performance. That’s because it is the same processor in last year’s iPad. Only the RAM has been increased to 3GB from the previous 2GB. But that doesn’t mean the iPad 10.2 is any lesser. The graphic and regular running performance never suffers and the iPadOS works wonders with even the dated processor chip. This is why the new iPad is still a winner in its old skin.

iPad 10.2(2019): CAMERA

The iPad has an 8MP rear camera with an f/2.4 aperture and supports 1080p video recording at 30fps. It works well for tasks such as scanning documents, barcodes, and QR Codes, and even does a good job with AR games and apps. the front camera is a simple 1.2 MP sensor. Both cameras support HDR. Any of the cameras won’t be your first choice for a selfie or a great family picture, but the rear camera is still able to produce decent images.
