Apple updated their classic silver 9.7″ iPad with an Apple A9 chip, which also has a M9 motion coprocessor. This 64-bit chip delivers performance that makes apps feel fast and fluid. Explore rich learning apps, play graphics-intensive games, or even use two apps at once. The iPad features a 9.7″ Retina Display that has a 2048 x 1536 resolution, which results in 264 ppi. That’s over 3.1 million pixels. The display also has multi-touch support. iOS 10 is the installed operating system. At just one pound and 7.5mm thin, the iPad features an aluminum unibody construction that delivers a solid feel. There is also a front 1.2MP FaceTime HD camera and a rear 8MP iSight camera that can record in 1080p video. With support for 802.11ac Wi-Fi, the iPad can reach data transfer speeds of up to 866 Mbps.
