I’ve been an iPad user from 2010, when it first shipped; the 9.7-in. screen has been a hallmark of the iPad since it was introduced by then-CEO Steve Jobs. Since then, the screen has undergone numerous revisions and improvements, most notably, adopting the Retina display technology that first appeared on the iPhone.
This latest model not only gets many of the architecture advances from the larger iPad Pro — such as an updated processor and a new, much-improved speaker design — but also a better camera and what may be the most advanced display Apple has shipped. That’s no small feat considering how advanced the larger iPad Pro was when it was announced last fall.
