Apple iPad overview

  • 1Description

Apple updated their classic gold 9.7" iPad with an Apple A9 chip, which also has a M9 motion coprocessor. This 64-bit chip delivers performance that makes apps feel fast and fluid. Explore rich learning apps, play graphically intensive games, or even use two apps at once with iOS 10's multitasking features.

The iPad features a 9.7" Retina Display that has a 2048 x 1536 resolution, resulting in 264 ppi — over 3.1 million pixels. The display also has multi-touch support.

At just one pound and 7.5mm thin, the iPad features an aluminum unibody construction that delivers a solid feel. There is also a front 1.2MP FaceTime HD camera and a rear 8MP camera that can record 1080p video.

With support for 802.11ac Wi-Fi, the iPad can reach data transfer speeds of up to 866 Mbps.

9.7" Retina Display
Within the 9.7" LED-backlit touchscreen, the 2048 x 1536 native resolution renders text and images at 264 pixels per inch and a total of over 3.1 million pixels. The display also features an oleophobic coating, which helps reduce the amount of fingerprint smudges.
8-Megapixel Rear Camera
The f/2.4 rear camera has an 8-megapixel sensor that captures images at a native resolution of 3264 x 2448 and 1080p HD video. The camera also features time-lapse video, exposure control, 120 fps slo-mo, a burst mode, a timer mode, and a high-resolution panorama mode.
FaceTime HD Camera
Put a face — or two — on every conversation. The 1.2-megapixel front-facing FaceTime HD camera can record 720p video and has an f/2.2 aperture that lets in more light. Its sensor and pixels help improve performance in low-light conditions, while dual microphones employ noise-reduction technology to help suppress background noise. In addition, when you switch cameras from front to back (or vice versa), the microphones switch too, so what your iPad sees is what it hears.
Touch ID
Use your unique fingerprint as a password. Touch ID lets you unlock your iPad instantly and secure private data in apps. You can also use it to make purchases with Apple Pay in apps and websites.
802.11ac Wi-Fi
Thanks to two 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz antennas and MIMO (multiple-input multiple-output) technology, the iPad can reach download speeds of up to 866 Mbps with its 802.11ac connection. So now when you want to download a movie, share photos or documents with AirDrop, or just browse the web, your connection is even faster than before.
Durable & Portable
At just one pound and 7.5mm thin, the iPad is designed to go wherever you go. And it's as durable as it is portable, with an aluminum unibody construction that delivers a solid feel.
iOS 10
iOS 10 is Apple's secure mobile operating system. You can work and play using two apps at once, ask Siri to send a message for you, and automatically back up your files with iCloud, so you can access them anywhere. Included are a number of built-in apps that help you get more out of your device.
Work Across Devices
The iPad works seamlessly with your other Apple devices. Start an email on your iPhone and finish it on the iPad. Or, copy images, video, and text from your iPad, then paste to your nearby Mac. You can even use AirDrop to share files wirelessly and instantly between devices.

    Apple iPad reviews

    9.7" iPad (2017, 32GB, Wi-Fi Only, Gold) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 392.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great First Impression I've owned many Apple products dating back to Apple //e, but this is my first experience with an iPad. What this iPad 5th Generation has in common with all previous Apples is that special feeling that you are handling very fine jewelry. The physical beauty of the item and its perfect heft are the first indications of the care that went into its design and manufacture. The setup was very easy and intuitive---in spite of the fact that the only written instruction (in the box) was a small piece of paper that identified the several buttons on the iPad. Once you know how to turn it on, the iPad leads you effortlessly through its setup. In very little time, you can be using the many included apps, browse online, and send email. During my first session, I was able to add most of my favorite bookmarks and contacts. Like all good things, you want to play more with it... tomorrow.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good reliable tablet I bought this as a replacement for my iPad Air. It works very well, battery seems to last a couple of days with moderate use, charges rapidly. I wish Apple would stop trying to squeeze every last dime from their customers and give us a better value. These days 32GB doesn't go very far, 64GB should be standard. Apple accessories like Lightning connector cables are expensive. An an extra $200 for an LTE cellular version? Sorry, I'll just WiFi and hotspots.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Got me thinking I've been a dedicated Android user, and basically think Apple's products cost twice what they're worth.� What got me here is an Asus 32GB Zenpad, which is the worst technology I've bought since dial up AOL.� This iPad has a beautiful screen, and works pretty flawlessly.� I'm also surprised how much better third party apps look on Apple than Android.� The downside is I really prefer the menus and app acquisition on Android.� Not sure this will ever get me over to an Android phone, but I'm happy with Apple as a tablet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first iPad, so far so good I don't have a previous iPad to compare this one to, but so far I'm enjoying having the larger screen than my iPhone to browse and read newspaper articles. I'm not putting the iPad through any tests, just day-to-day reading and browsing. So far no glitches or complaints.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Uses the old world screen aspect ratio 4:3 I didn't check the specs close enough before the purchase. It uses the old world square aspect ratio of 4:3.. Not today's standard of 16:9 .. So when I'm trying to view our high resolution security cameras, it displays a distorted image in the old 4:3 square format. Our cheap Android 8 tablet has a much better display and is in today's standard of 16:9. The only reason I'm keeping this old world 4:3 square screen, is I needed access to the Apple Apps.. Most all these type devices today come with built in card readers. So its time Apple finds some real world designers with their heads on their shoulders!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything you need Got this iPad as a replacement for my mom's iPad 3 which had become quite slow due to its age and this new one does circles around it. Incredibly responsive, great battery life and easy to hold. Not the thinnest and lightest iPad out there, but for this price, it's amazing. The only negative if I could find one is that the display is not laminated like the Air 2 or Pro, and that means tapping a little harder on the screen sometimes makes it feel a bit spongy. The fix, don't tap hard. As for B&H, the ordering process was simply, got to use Apple Pay and it shipped immediately. iPad arrived on time and packaged very well. I'll be using B&H from now on for my electronics purchases.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Definite Buy About 4 years ago I bought an Ipad mini for my husband w/only 16 gigs of memory because I really didn't know if he would become computer literate or not. Well, he took to the whole experience and began making noises about needing a larger, more involved machine so I bought him the iPad 9.7. He LOVES it and is on it all the time. He researches ideas, projects, news and much more. He watches Youtube videos and playes games. All in all, I think he's doing very well for an 83 year old.
