Apple just had the latest keynote event where we got a bunch of different upgrades coming to the Apple ones, of course, the iPad Mini beside me. be This unboxing, though, is all about the entry-level iPad so this is the ninth Gen iPad now, in my opinion, this was maybe one of the more underwhelming announcements, not to say that it isn’t important because this is the best selling iPads. What is the latest iPad 128GB?
The cheapest iPad that you can get but we kind of saw bigger upgrades, say coming to the many that the brainy design refresh, whereas this oh gee, I’ve had it still carries the same footprint. I believe this is out now for 567 years, it remains the only iPad in the range that still uses lightning and still has touch ID, but we’ll get to that in a second.
What is the latest iPad 128GB?
We will do a quick unboxing to see what’s inside. And you can see the kind of on the box the little iPad silhouette, same design, like I mentioned, available only in two colors so the Space Gray and silver, and the iPad unboxing is very standard stuff we’ve got the person icon on top underneath, we’ve got the classic user manuals warranty info, designed by California he Annapolis, that’s the first time you heard it here on the channel it’s kind of a running joke.
Maybe I should develop a shirt or something that says that not too sure if anyone would actually buy that, you know, but we’ve also got the Quickstart guides, and a little SIM card slot tool because I do you have the cellular version as well, and Apple stickers in white, you’ll still get two nice to see that we haven’t reduced the bunk size of the iPad yet, you’ve got a 20-watt charger and a Lightning to USB C cable.
Apple didn’t slim down the box and get rid of the charging cables like they did from the iPhone one, and here is the iPad as it heats up and you can see the cellular version is cut this whole block band on top, but very iconic design for an icon, it’s kind of what we know what we love the setup is super simple and we’ve got that classic touch ID button upfront so this is the last iPod that still features a physical button we’re now moving away from that, going in to face ID
