At its yearly Apple Event today, Apple just refreshed its most popular iPad model. A bigger screen, improvements to iPadOS, Apple Pencil support and more are all packed into the 7th-gen model.

Starting at $329, the new model will be available at the end of September. When comparing apples to apples, that’s about the same price as the 2018 entry-level iPad, but with better tech and a bigger screen.

The 9.7-inch iPad is now a 10.2-inch iPad

The 7th-gen iPad brings a host of improvements from the existing iPad, which has been the model 60% of new iPad owners purchase.

Some of those improvements include:

  • Desktop-quality web browsing via the Safari browser
  • Pinch to get a floating keyboard, instead of the keyboard taking up half the screen
  • New photo editing tools in the Photos app
  • Apple Pencil support
  • 100-percent recycled aluminum in the housing
  • Starting at $329
  • 1 year of AppleTV+ for free with purchase

Apple’s newest $329 entry-level tablet will be released on September 30, but you can preorder the device now from Apple’s website. I guess it’s time to upgrade my old Air 2…
