New 2019 iPad now offers smart keyboard support

The new iPad will have the same price tag as its predecessor.

Just months after the new iPad Air and iPad mini were released, Apple has unveiled its latest addition to its line of iPad devices. It’s the follow-up to the iPad 2018 sixth-generation, and it’s coming with enhanced features, including, among other things, the smart keyboard support.

The 2019 iPad was announced alongside the release of the new iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max.

UPDATE: Apple’s new 7th-gen budget iPad now up for pre-order on Amazon

The new iPad 2019 seventh-generation is still priced at $329 for the 32GB Wi-Fi model, just like its predecessor. Apple has already released the listing for the sixth-generation, which is a typical move for Apple when it releases updated versions of its products.

Apple's official store, meanwhile, marked down the price of the 9.7-inch iPad 2018 by 24% to just $249.00.

Another major upgrade with the new iPad is its screen size. It now has a 10.2-inch Retina display, bigger than the previous model that only has a 9.7-inch Retina display. The new iPad now has smart keyboard support, which means users can now purchase the Apple-manufactured smart keyboard that’s also available for the iPad Pro and the iPad Air.

Because it’s bigger, the new iPad is now heavier than the previous model by only about 14 grams for the Wi-Fi model and by 15 grams for the Wi-Fi + Cellular model.

Other than these major changes, the new iPad continues to have the same features as the sixth-gen version, including, among other things, Touch ID, the A10 Fusion chip, the maximum storage capacity, the Apple Pencil first generation compatibility, the lightning connector, the LED-backlit display with Multi‑Touch and IPS technology, the same resolution at 2160-by-1620 resolution at 264 ppi and the fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating.

The new iPad is also packed with the same battery capacity as the previous model with up to 10 hours of surfing the web on Wi‑Fi, watching video, or listening to music.

The release of the new iPad will coincide with the release of the iPadOS, giving users more ways to multitask and manage their documents.

“This new iPad with iPadOS takes everything people love about our most popular iPad and makes it even better for creating, learning, working and playing.” Greg Joswiak, Apple’s vice president of Product Marketing, said.

The 2019 iPad is available for pre-order on and in the Apple Store app in the U.S. and more than 25 other countries and regions. It will be available for purchase in stores starting September 30.

Prices will start at $329 in the U.S. for the Wi-Fi model and $459 for the Wi-Fi + Cellular model.
