Seventh-generation iPad with 10.2-inch screen ships on Wednesday

Apple will start to ship its seventh-generation iPad from Wednesday, the company has advised, with the first units of the tablet starting to arrive in Apple retail outlets beginning later this week.

Apple seventh-generation iPad 10.2



In an announcement timed to coincide with the release of iPadOS 13.1 to users, Apple has confirmed it will commence shipments of the new 10.2-inch iPad from September 25. The new timing is seemingly earlier than Apple's original intention as the official page for the iPad lists it as "available starting 9/30," indicating the release has been shifted forward by a few days.

Available to order via the Apple website and the Apple Store app in more than 25 countries and regions, the new seventh-generation iPad replaces the traditional 9.7-inch display with a 10.2-inch Retina screen, which includes support for the first-generation Apple Pencil as well as the full-size Smart Keyboard.

Packing the A10 Fusion chip, the model is proclaimed to be twice as fast as the top-selling Windows PC, and is equipped with a rear 8-megapixel camera and a front-facing 1.2-megapixel FaceTime camera capable of 1080p video and 720p slo-mo video at 120 frames per second.

The new iPad is offered in Space Gray, Silver, and Gold color options, starting from $329 for the 32 gigabyte-capacity storage option and rising to $429 for the 128GB model. Upgrading from Wi-Fi to Wi-Fi and Cellular raises the price of each to $459 and $559 respectively.

Where to buy



Apple Authorized Resellers have already started offering discounts on the new iPads, with Amazon knocking $30 off 128GB Wi-Fi models at press time.
