Like a computer. Unlike any computer.
If the computer were invented today, what would it look like? It would be powerful enough for any task. So mobile you could take it everywhere. And so intuitive you could use it any way you wanted — with touch, a keyboard, or even a pencil.¹ In other words, it wouldn’t really be a “computer.” It would be iPad.
64-bit architecture. Four-core design. Over 3.3 billion transistors. Translation: iPad is incredibly fast. Which comes in handy when you want to edit a 4K video, play graphics-intensive games, or experience the latest augmented reality apps.
iPad packs enough power to use multiple apps all at once. Work on your business plan while doing research on the web while making a FaceTime call to a colleague at the same time. It’s even easier than it sounds.
Augmented reality (AR) is a new technology that brings virtual objects into the real world. And every aspect of iPad — from the display to the processing power to the motion sensors — is designed to make AR apps more magical than before.
Augmented reality apps fundamentally change what you’re capable of. Learn something new in the classroom. Share out-of-this-world experiences with friends. Solve everyday problems. Immerse yourself in entertainment and games. With iPad and AR, the possibilities are endless.
iPad has always been a great way to get what’s in your mind down on the page. And now you have a new way to do it. Write notes, paint a watercolor, or sign a lease. With Apple Pencil, you’ll do it all with pixel-perfect precision and responsiveness. Use it as naturally as you would a pencil, while doing a whole lot more than you would with one.
Built-in front and back cameras allow you to shoot gorgeous photos and cinematic videos, scan documents, make FaceTime calls, or even create a floor plan using augmented reality.
Need to sit down and hammer out a research paper, email, or your blockbuster screenplay? iPad has an intuitive onscreen keyboard, but it’s also compatible with all kinds of Bluetooth keyboards.
Cut a track with GarageBand, make a compelling presentation with Keynote, or shoot and edit a short film with iMovie. iPad comes with a collection of apps from Apple so you can start creating right out of the box.
Every one of the 1.3 million iPad apps has been designed specifically for the large iPad display. There are apps for anything you want to do — photography, drawing, or just getting some work done. And finding your new favorite apps is as easy as visiting the App Store, where editors are always curating the best of what’s new and noteworthy.
At less than half a kilo and 7.5 mm thin, iPad is a breeze to take wherever you go. It’s built to be durable, so you have peace of mind knowing you can take it anywhere. And it’s just as beautiful as it is portable — available in silver, space gray, and gold.
iPad features Wi-Fi speeds up to 866 Mbps and LTE speeds up to 300 Mbps.² Adding an Apple SIM also connects you to cellular data networks in over 180 countries and regions. So you’re always free to catch up on your favorite show during your commute, send an email on the fly, or post vacation photos during your trip.
With all-day battery life, iPad gives you more time to surf, write, draw, work, shop, and whatever else you need to do between charges.³
iCloud keeps things like your photos, files, and notes safe and conveniently available on all your devices. And the Files app puts all your files of any type in one place, including those you store with cloud services like Google Drive, OneDrive, and Box.
iPad is designed so that using it feels like second nature, even if you never have before. Multi-Touch gestures let you do things like browse photos, edit documents, and organize your files simply by touching the beautiful 9.7-inch Retina display.
The Dock is always just a swipe away. So it’s easy to get to an app from another app without having to go back to the Home screen. Add your favorite apps to the Dock. Or multitask in a flash by opening apps directly from it.
Designed specifically for Multi-Touch, drag and drop makes it easy to move text, images, and files between apps just by touching them. Make your document more engaging by dropping in a photo. Or simply add an attachment to your email. You can even select multiple items to move with a few taps of a finger.
The 9.7-inch Retina display is an immersive way to experience all the things you can do with iPad. Whether you’re writing a business plan or painting a masterpiece, the spacious display offers a vividness and clarity that’s so stunning you can’t help but touch it. Which is exactly the point.
Touch ID makes unlocking your iPad simple and secure. Just place your fingertip on the Touch ID sensor and you’re good to go.
The most powerful technology is technology that everyone can use. That’s why iPad comes with many assistive features for vision, hearing, motor skills, learning, and literacy. Customize display colors to aid visibility. Or have the content on the screen read aloud to you.
