There is always a great deal of speculation ahead of Apple product announcements and releases, and the Autumn 2021 event was no exception. Apple certainly didn’t disappoint their fans, as they announced a whole raft of new products – no less than 4 iPhone 13 variants, a new Apple Watch (Series 7), and 2 new iPads – one full-sized and one Mini version. This event was unusual in that it was held virtually due to the ongoing covid restrictions in force at the time. Titled ‘California Streaming’ and streamed from an otherwise empty venue in Cupertino, about 2 million people tuned in worldwide via YouTube to witness the launch of the latest products.
The 2021 10.2-inch iPad, the 9th generation of this popular tablet, was the lowest-cost version produced to date. Simply called ‘iPad’ this version had received the Apple A13 Bionic chip, enabling 20% faster processing speeds than its predecessor, plus increased storage (starting at 64GB and rising to 256GB) at a comparable price. The increased popularity of virtual meetings and video calls was also taken into account in the changes to the 2021 iPad. The front camera was a much-improved 12MP version, fitted with a wider-angle lens (122-degree field of view), enabling more people to appear in-shot and great for group gatherings.
Available in the same range of colours as the previous model, the 9th Generation iPad had a black bezel, and was compatible with Smart Keyboard, 1st Gen Apple Pencil and had a Smart Connector for other attachments. It was available to buy from September 24th 2021.

Tablets have never been more popular for both work and leisure, and the iPad 9th Generation is certainly a welcome addition to the options available. The fact that this version of iPad offers such a greatly improved camera, faster processing speed and all that extra storage, but at the same price as the old 2020 model, is a real bonus. With a 10.2-inch Retina screen, combined with a wide-angle 12 MP camera, business meetings and personal catch-ups via Zoom (or any other virtual platform) become easier and more effective, so whether you are working from home on your own, or in the office keeping in touch with your colleagues, this is the iPad for you.
The problem is, if your iPad 9th Generation is not working effectively, you will not be able to work or play as you want to – maybe it’s not charging properly, the camera doesn’t work as it should, or the screen has been cracked or scratched.
