New iPad 9.7 launches

Say hello to the new iPad.

Not iPad Air. Not iPad Pro. Not even iPad Mini. Just, iPad. Apple's latest tablet has touched down, and the new iPad slides in below the firm's iPad Pro duo.

Available in 32GB and 128GB storage sizes, and with the choice of either Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi and Cellular, the new iPad is the same height and width as the iPad Air 2 that it replaces (240 x 169.5mm), but it's also slightly thicker at 7.5mm (vs 6.1mm).

It's also put on a bit of weight, with the Wi-Fi only model tipping the scales at 469g (1.03 pounds) and the 4G conntected option coming in at 478g (1.05 pounds).

Under the hood of the new iPad you're looking at an A9 chip (with an embedded M9 coprocessor), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2 and a nanoSIM tray (if you opt for the cellular model).
