Apple iPad (8th Generation) Specifications and Price

Apple yesterday presented two iPad models, of which the “smaller” is the new 8th generation iPad. It offers a 10,2 inch display with support for Apple Pencil 1, up to 128 GB of internal memory, a home button with Touch ID and an A12 Bionic chip with 64-bit architecture and neural engine. What else you need to know about the new iPad, what price is charged and further information can be found in this post. In a separate article I will then shed light on the “big” model that was presented yesterday: the Apple iPad Air (2020) with A14 Bionic Chip and Touch ID in the power button.

The new Apple iPad of the 8th generation of 2020 does not offer any great innovations, but is at least compatible with the Apple Pencil of the 1st generation and the Magic Keyboard. This is how all the advantages of iPadOS 14 come into play.

Apple September Keynote Summary

The title of yesterday's Apple Special Event was “Time Flies”. This indicated the two focal points of the presentation: the Apple Watch as a timepiece and the iPad, which is now 10 years old as a product line. The iPhone 12 was not an issue and the Apple Mac or macOS 11.0 Big Sur were also left out of the range of topics. There were two new subscription models with Fitness + and Apple One. My recap of last night's Apple September keynote can be found with this link. Which product or service concept did you like best? Or did you not even take a look because no iPhone was presented? Feel free to leave a comment on the topic;)

    I was hoping that the iPhone 12 would be introduced. I just can't make friends with the Applewatch, but that applies to all smartwatch models for me. I am very conservative because for me a watch must have a real movement (automatic or manual winding). As for the IPhone 12, I tend to buy an IPhone 11 Pro. First of all, I'll wait for the IPhone 12 to be introduced.

      Hello Horst! It was the same with me. When Tim said they wanted to focus on Apple Watch and iPad at the keynote, I almost left too. : D But I assume that the iPhone will have its own keynote and then maybe the first Apple Silicon Mac will also be presented. I hope it won't be a MacBook Pro because I couldn't afford it. : D
