So after a long wait and countless rumors on the sidelines, Apple has finally officially announced the new iPad and iPad Mini models on the stage of the annual product launch event in September 2021.
The new iPad and iPad Mini series come with new A13 Bionic and A15 Bionic processors respectively, which significantly increases overall processing performance compared to their predecessors.

While the iPad Mini’s CPU performance is up to 40%, and especially the GPU’s processing power is even 80% faster than the previous version, ensuring smooth processing of all applications and games. Mobile games can be found on the market today.
Besides improved processing power, another highlight to mention on the new iPad is the 10.2-inch Retina panel that supports True Tone, allowing to adjust the display quality depending on the light from the surrounding environment. around. This makes the image reproduced more naturally on the screen, while providing the user with a more comfortable viewing experience in each situation.
Another big change with the iPad 2021 lies in the 12MP ultra-wide-angle front camera that supports Center Stage. Center Stage is a technology that uses a combination of the ultra-wide-angle camera and the Neural Engine to automatically adjust the frame to adapt to any movement of the subject. When many people step into the frame, the Neural Engine will also automatically detect and adjust to fit them all into the right frame. Center Stage works with FaceTime and third-party video calling apps to enhance the quality of your video calls.

A 256GB version is also available for those who need to “cram” more apps, videos, and photos on their iPad. Apple said this increase in capacity is reasonable because the need for data storage is becoming increasingly necessary for iPad users.
