The upgraded cameras include a 12MP ultra wide-angle front camera located along the edge of the iPad landscape for an even better video calling experience and an upgraded 12MP rear camera to capture crisp, vivid photos and 4K video. A USB-C port supports a wide range of accessories, Wi-Fi 6 offers even faster connections, and cellular models feature super-fast 5G so users can stay connected on the go. With iPadOS 16 and support for Apple Pencil (1st generation), iPad gives users more ways to be creative and productive.

Jacob Krol for TheStreet:

I spent five days with a 10th generation iPad, so let’s talk about it.

The 10th generation front is closer to the whole screen with a 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display that features minimal bezels … The overall experience of using the 10th generation iPad is pretty great. And much thanks to the Liquid Retina display here, the extra space here makes it more spacious for multitasking in a split-screen environment. For example, I can more comfortably write this review on the right side and review my notes on the left. Heck, if I need to text someone, I can even have the Messages app switch to both panels.

I found the 10th generation iPad experience to be very smooth and for most of the core tasks it went very well. With a 4K export test in iMovie and Lumafusion it was beaten by the more expensive models, but still for an iPad starting at $ 449 the mileage here will take you a long way.

In fact, I’ve successfully used this tablet with Magic Keyboard Folio as my primary device for work for two full days. It could handle writing in a web-based CMS, monitoring social feeds, replying and creating emails, and even cropping or editing photos in Pixelmator …

It is an excellent iPad and if you are someone who is looking to swim between iPad activities and more advanced ones, this is an excellent choice. The $ 449 price tag also includes 64GB of storage which is a clutch. It can also be paired with the $ 249 Magic Keyboard Folio for a laptop-like experience that really lets you work here.
