Apple’s new line of iPads, available October 26.

Apple’s new line of iPads

The 10th generation iPad will have a slightly larger screen than the previous model, which will remain in Apple’s lineup starting at $329.

The new models get an updated chip for better performance, updated cameras, and 5G support on cellular models. iPads are available in four colors: blue, pink, yellow and silver.

The new iPads are available with 64 GB or 256 GB of storage. Users can also charge iPads with USB-C instead of Apple’s proprietary Lightning connector.

A new iPad Pro

The upgraded iPad Pro gets the company’s M2 processing chip, which Apple says will allow the tablet to perform better and use power more efficiently.

The iPad Pro also introduces a new experience with Apple Pencil where users can hover over the screen without touching it to unlock a new layer of functions. In one example, with the Scribble app, Apple says “text fields automatically expand as the pen approaches the screen, and handwriting converts to text even faster.”

Apple TV 4K gets an update

Apple’s latest streaming device is getting an updated chip that the company says will deliver 50% faster performance compared to the latest model. The device with Siri Remote starts at $129. It also gets a big storage bump with 128GB compared to 64GB in the previous version.
