Refreshed iPad Air And Mini Added To iPad Family

With the inclusion of two refreshed models, Apple now sells a total of five iPads. Apple has launched the new models for preorders and they will officially hit the stores next week. In the earlier days, recommending someone an iPad used to be a somewhat simpler task. Apple now sells two different types of connectors and two different types of Apple Pencils with iPads. Apple also offers guidance on which Apple Pencil to go for based on the model of iPad you have purchased. The two new iPads also pack blazing-fast graphics for games and applications.

Surprisingly the two new models launched recently have compatibility with the older generation of Apple Pencil. Both new models will come equipped with faster A12 processors. The market for tablets seems to be evolving at a much slower rate than the market for smartphones and laptops. Apple is launching a new streaming video service in the next week and with the launch of two new iPads earlier, Apple apparently wants to keep the focus on video streaming in the next week.
