Apple has updated its 9.7-inch iPad, featuring a brighter Retina display and improved performance.
The Retina display features over 3.1 million pixels, and the device is enclosed in an aluminum unibody enclosure weighing one pound. It runs on the Apple-designed A9 chip with 64-bit desktop-class architecture.
The new iPad comes with iOS 10, new ways to use Siri with users' apps, redesigned Maps, Photos, Apple Music and News, and the new Home app, which lets consumers set up, manage and control their home all in one place, according to the vendor.
The new iPad comes in silver, gold and space gray and starts at US$329 for the 32GB with Wi-Fi model and US$459 for the 32GB Wi-Fi plus Cellular model, said Apple.
