The New iPad Works With Apple Pencil

Power for what you do today. And what you’ll discover tomorrow.

At the event in Chicago, Apple announced an updated 9.7-inch iPad that supports Apple Pencil, which is one of the features that last year’s 9.7-inch iPad lacked.

The new 9.7-inch iPad is powered by Apple’s latest processor, the A10 Fusion chip. This bit of silicon makes it easier for users to run augmented reality apps, or use iOS 11’s multitasking features to run multiple apps at once while still keeping things snappy. The iPads have Touch ID, a battery that runs for 10 hours, and the same storage options as the previous generation.

The iPad lets you do split-screen multi-tasking, but at 9.7-inches it’s a little tight.

Additionally, Apple revealed two iPad accessories that it’s collaborated with Logitech on. The first is another stylus device, called Crayon, which can do much of what the Apple Pencil can do yet costs only $49. The other accessory is a rugged keyboard case that costs $99.

The updated iPad is available today in Apple stores and on its website. You can get it in silver, space gray and gold (new!).
