iPad 8th Generation

First, let’s talk about the entry-level iPad.
This time Apple has done an amazing work by upgrading the most affordable and most loved iPad in India.
With the same screen size of 10.2 inches, Apple has installed a powerful A12 Bionic Chip with Neural Engine that make this iPad to the next level.
With the storage capacity starting from 32 GB and 128 GB is same as the previous one iPad but I think Apple can upgrade the storage capacity from 64 GB. You can also attach a pen drive which has the lightning port so that you cannot feel the shortage of storage and can easily transfer the files.
They have also added the support the 1st generation Pencil which will help to copy and paste handwritten notes as text, mark up PDF, screenshots and other cool features.
Now with the 8th generation iPad, you will get a support of PS4 or Xbox wireless controller with Bluetooth. You will also get 100 ad-free games in one subscription
The last but not the least, with the powerful A12 Bionic Chip, Apple has not changed the price of iPad that means in India 32 GB variant with WIFI will be available at a price of ₹29,999 and WIFI + Cellular variant starts from ₹41,900.

The biggest change Apple did with this beast is changing iPad pro like screen and upgrading the processor.
The X factor for the iPad Air 4 is adding A14 Bionic System-on-Chip (SOC) which is the most powerful processor the company has made to date.
This iPad supports 2nd generation Pencil, has a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, which also doubles up aa the power button.
The most amazing thing is a screen which is 10.9-inch backlit Liquid Retina display with multi-touch, true tone display and has up to 500 nits peak brightness that is 100 nits less than the iPad pro with a pixel density of 264 ppl (pixel per inch) and comes with fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating.

Due to price hike of iPad Air 4, some people will divert to the iPad 8th generation but before that, we need to understand the usability of these products.
If you are a video editor or graphic designer or a hardcore gamer then you should straightway choose iPad Air 4.
But If you want an iPad just for surfing the web, dating youtube, play games and the daily task then you should invest the amount on iPad Air 4 rather you can go for iPad 8th generation, as this iPad will not disappoint you regarding the speed and smoothness in the task.
