In yesterday’s keynote, Apple announced updates of two tablet model series. One of them is the iPad 9th Generation. The WiFi and 4G variants have been launched as usual in black and silver. Here are all models and variants. Sales will start on 24 September 2021. The accessories are sold separately.

There’s a new successor to the popular iPad 8th Gen. Looking for an iPad with a good price-performance ratio? If so, the iPad 9th Gen. might be for you. It’s light, thin and small – yet very powerful. It boasts a faster response time with the A13 Bionic chip, a 12 MP front-facing camera, and a long battery life that will see you through the whole day. Find out what has changed in the comparison table below. Here you can find the matching tablet cases, tablet keyboards and stylus.
