Apple Pencil compatibility with the new 9.7 inch iPad is the current talk of the town from Apple’s latest public announcement in Chicago, but things don’t end there.
However, if you’ve been expecting anything more than a normal upgraded iPad, possibly with FaceID and A11x Fusion chip and high-end camera, you’ve set yourself up for disappointment. It was an education focused event, and what we got out of it was more than we bargained for.
The significantly lower price tag ($329 for the general public, and $299 for schools) and the Apple Pencil support, along with other bells and whistles previously restricted to the iPad Pro lineup, have earned this device a new name in my book: “iPad Pro Junior.”
Oh, and before we jump into the full review, take a look at these awesome discounts on the 2018 iPad cases. Thank us later.
