Apple iPad overview

  • 1Description

Apple updated their classic silver 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, 128GB, Wi-Fi Only, Silver) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 223.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product at a Very Good Price, Includes free shipping I've been a Microsoft PC person for many years but have had a few Apple products, including the original Mac and Lisa. I finally decided to bite the bullet and try the iPad. I love it. I use if for email, Facebook, news and to remotely control our Soundboard at church (the primary reason for this purchase). It won't replace my PC/Microsoft Surface but it is very nice. I got the version with 128 GB memory and that seems to be sufficient, since I also use OneDrive and other Cloud services. I also run Microsoft apps, so can use this for some work related tasks, as well. Mine is the Gold model, and it is very classy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy! Just upgraded from a Generation 2 iPad to this Generation 5 iPad. WOW!! What a difference. Being able to keep the same setup, layout and not have to learn a whole new system is always a plus when it comes to iPad and Apple in general. It is amazing how much faster the Gen 5 iPad is at processing emails, opening applications and streaming movies. Just great. I recommend to anyone who has an old iPad to upgrade to this one as soon as you can. What a difference. Additionally, fast shipping too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this device...almost has much as my iPhone I was probably the last person in the Apple universe to not have an iPad! I got 128GB because I have a lot of photos and wanted a device that would be a back up device for my phone. For streaming video to my AppleTV, the playback has been flawless, except for DirectTV. I still need to figure that out and just haven’t had the time. When I just want to watch a quick video or the news, the display is gorgeous! The order itself, came quickly even though there were backorder concerns and issues with UPS not having enough people to deliver things when promised. I was going to purchase a new MacBook but thanks to my iPad, I can put that on the back burner. Tig

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from better than I thought First off, I'm an apple guy. �I have a 27 inch imac, an apple air laptop, and an iphone 8. �I saw this was on sale so I got it. �It's fast. �I find it is the easiest thing to read online books and magazines. �I got the wifi only version, which is perfect since there are hotspots all over AND my iphone can act as a hotspot. �I'm pretty darn happy with this!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I have owned apple products for years and am basically replacing my Ipad 4 with this version. Nothing wrong with my Ipad 4 I just wanted the touch feature and updated technology that this unit offers. If I didn't have an Iphone6 plus, I wouldn't know all about the latest and greatest software available so call me spoiled! Apple makes outstanding products and I love the fact that each time I turn it on, I don't have to wait for numerous updates in the software. These little pads are so handy and carry well in luggage. Absolutely love my Ipad!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic iPad for average user I bought this as an upgrade from an iPad 2 (super old, I know), and have been nothing but pleased with it. First, my only complaints: - No mute switch (it's handled in the Control Center instead) - Limited case availability (but it's back compatible with a lot of iPad Pro 9.7 and iPad Air cases). This thing is fast, light, has a fantastic screen... basically everything that I was looking for in a tablet. I was trying to decide between this and a 9.7 iPad Pro, and basically the difference is the laminated screen (I can't tell the difference) and the Apple Pencil compatibility (which I never use). This was an easy choice for me, and B&H got it to me with no sales tax and free express shipping. I definitely recommend the product and B&H for this!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ahhhhhhhh........*sigh* So much better. The old iPad was, well, old. Slow, so very slow. And there is more to do. I love Zinio...but my whatever was way too full...and even when I could get a magazine downloaded, I knew the pictures could be so much better. Think gardening, visual, flowers, plants, green so much better. Videos-better Storage-more It's just so much more fun when it's faster, prettier, and all the cool apps from the old machine just showed up! I did have to work out user names and passwords on some things....places a little extra security was a good thing.
