Apple recently unified its iPad product line with the release of the 2017 9.7-inch iPad, a replacement for the outgoing iPad Air 2. Starting at $329, the new iPad skips some high-end features like quad speakers and a laminated, wide color gamut display, but brings entry level users up to speed with an A9 SoC and 802.11ac Wi-Fi.
