At its education-centric event in Chicago last month, Apple announced its new 9.7-inch iPad that comes with support for Apple Pencil. While this new iPad is already available for purchase in several countries like the US, the UK, France and Germany, it is available for pre-orders in India starting today.
This new iPad is powered by the A10 Fusion chip and features a 9.7-inch LED-backlit Multi-Touch IPS Retina Display that has a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels. And, like we already said, it comes with Apple Pencil support which would help users edit photos easily while also letting them jot down notes quickly.
That said, the new 9.7-inch iPad runs iOS 11 and comes with features like Dock, Drag-and-Drop, Split View and Slide Over to name a few. Moreover, it also comes with support for AR (Augmented Reality) apps that can be used for both education and fun.
