It's official. Apple just launched the 10.2in iPad at its September iPhone Special Event, which took place 10 September at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, California (watch the recording of the live stream here).
There are a few changes in the new iPad. Apart from the larger 10.2in Retina display, the 7th generation iPad works on its own iPadOS operating system, features a smart connector which lets you attach a full-size external keyboard, and integrates Apple Pencil support on a higher level than before.
Here's everything you need to know about the 10.2in iPad, including price, specs, design, new features, software and more.
