Apple will present a new entry iPad in early 2021


Last September, Apple introduced the eighth-generation iPad. This being an entry model, we have not seen a revolution in its design, with the main novelties inside.

For the spring of 2021, Apple could make a revelation that will surprise many people. According to the Chinese website CNBeta, the American company will present a new entry-level iPad during this period.

New entry-level iPad will arrive with A13 Bionic processor

The processor in Apple’s new tablet seems to be its main novelty. Powered by the SoC A13 Bionic – the same as the iPhone 11 – super performance is expected even when compared to the model currently on the market.


The screen of this new iPad is expected to rise to 10.5 inches, representing a slight improvement over 10.2 of the latest model. Allegedly, the next model will have a screen inspired by the new iPad Air, so smaller margins are expected.

Interestingly, we have no mention of the screen technology that Apple will use on this iPad. This point is relevant, since several rumors claim that the American will launch its first device, of this range, with mini-LED panel precisely in the first quarter of next year,

It is also ensured that the new entry-level iPad will maintain Touch ID technology for biometric authentication. If the edges of the screen of this new tablet shrink, we can see an allocation of this sensor also in the button power the device.

Given the few specifications released, the next entry-level iPad will come with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. All this for a slightly lower price than the model unveiled in September.

New iPad could start at $ 299

Although the report does not mention euro values, it is mentioned that the new iPad will start at $ 299. A little less than the 329 dollars charged on the latest model.

In UK, these values ​​always rise due to the weakness of our currency. Therefore, the next model can reach Lusitanian lands at around 350 €.
