Apple’s iPad 8th generation is the most powerful entry iPad experience ever

Features of Apple iPad 8th generation

There has never been an entry iPad with the power and performance of the iPad 8th generation. It keeps the form factor, 10.2-inch Retina Display, FaceTime HD camera, and 10-hour battery life of the previous generation. It’s still just 7.5 mm thin, and only 490 grams.

But the all-new Apple iPad 8 gets a huge performance upgrade thanks to its A12 Bionic processor with Neural Engine. The A12 Bionic chip delivers up to 40% faster CPU performance, and twice the graphics capabilities. According to Apple’s testing that makes the iPad 8th generation up to twice as fast as top-selling Windows laptops, and up to six times faster than top-selling Chromebooks.

Add an optional Smart Keyboard and this iPad can transform into a high-powered, ultraportable laptop. Add an optional Apple Pencil to take notes or sketch out your ideas.

Differences between Apple iPad 8 and previous versions

Ever since the original iPad was introduced a decade ago, Apple has steadily improved on the tablet. The latest model is the iPad 8th generation, but previous versions are still available and each brought new capabilities. The iPad 8 is the latest, greatest and by far the most powerful, and here’s how it differs otherwise from previous generations.

Compared to last year’s iPad 7, the difference is the upgrade to the A12 Bionic chip, the first time Apple has included a Neural Engine in an iPad of this class.

Compared to a 6th generation iPad and earlier, you’ll notice the new iPad 8th generation is a big all-round upgrade. The display is larger at 10.2-inches (compared to 9.7-inches), and the 6th generation lacked the Smart Connector that supports Apple’s Smart Keyboard.

Compared to earlier iPad models, the iPad 8 becomes even more outstanding. In addition to getting faster with each generation, there has been a steady progression of upgrades and new features. Over the years, Apple has increased the base storage from 16GB to 32GB, boosted the resolution of the FaceTime and primary cameras, dramatically increased the resolution of the display, reduced bezel sizes, incorporated TouchID support, added 802.11ac Wi-Fi support, and offered the option of LTE cellular connectivity. Battery life has remained at 10 hours, but each new iPad has been thinner and lighter.
