we have Apple iPad 10.2 which is considered to be one of the 10 best tablets in 2019.  It is the best iPad Apple announced in 2019. This tablet comes with a sensitive fingerprint scanner and advantages. In this article, we will provide you with a quick review regarding the iPad 7.

 
Apple iPad 10.2: Price, Release Date, Specifications and  in 2019.

Design & Display.


Apple iPad 10.2 is made from aluminum and the back is also made from aluminum. The iPad 10.2 comes with dimensions as clarified:250.6mm x 174.1mm x 7.5mm ( 9.87 in x 6.85 in x 0.30 in ). The device comes with a single rear camera at the top left. The S5e has a home button with a fingerprint sensor embedded in it as in the Huawei MatePad M6 and Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e. The front is made from glass with huge edges. There is a punch hole in the top of the screen to house the front-facing camera. The thickness of the device is 7.5mm and it weighs 483grams ( WiFi) or 493grams ( LTE).

As far as display is concerned,  Apple iPad 7 comes with a 10.2 IPS LCD display which Apple calls Retina Display. The screen occupies 74.4% of the front of the device. The iPad 7 has a resolution (1620x2160)  with 264 PPI.

Dimensions aside, on paper, the biggest question mark regarding the screen is in its technology is in fact a  non-laminated display . It is a technology that, in a nutshell, puts a gap between the front of the screen and the LEDs, this gap after giving a lower responsiveness of the screen and a lower quality of the images. Apple has been using laminated screens on iPads for years; only the original iPad and all non-retina iPads, plus of course the 2018 iPad, had non-laminated screens.

in practice this does not mean much : when operating an iPad 7 there are no delays in the inputs, there are no problems in the use of Apple Pencil, the quality of the interface and of the photos is still very high and the color fidelity excellent. Of course the icons seem a little more "distant" from the fingertip and Truetone and WideColor are missing, but in the first case you get used to it, for the second problem you must take into account that these technologies on an iPad of this range do not make much sense.

The second novelty, less visible than the screen size but not insignificant, is the introduction of the Smart Connector also in this iPad . This magnetic connection system consists of pins that connect an external accessory with the iPad and was previously reserved for the Pro models and the third generation iPad Air; put on iPad 7 it moves up its functionality because it allows you to use keyboards such as the Smart Keyboard (iPad 10.2 is compatible with those for iPad Air and iPad 10.5 Pro) without pairing and without worries about recharging the battery .

If we talk about the Smart Keyboard we can say it has only one angle and that its design is quite particular, we can also advance some doubts about the response of the keys, but it is undoubted that having the possibility to use such an accessory is a not indifferent “plus” for iPad 2019 . Also thanks to the support for a mouse that we know is supported in iPadOs now iPad also in this entry level version can be approached to some laptops for functionality and flexibility.

If anything, speaking of Smart Connector we can discuss the fact that it is underused . In practice, there is only one Apple accessory that uses it, the Smart Keyboard, which has a very high cost that becomes difficult to accept if you think that bought at 179 euros means paying out as much as another half iPad.

There is little to say about use with Apple Pencil 1 (Apple Pencil 2 remains reserved for iPad Pro). Ergonomics and the ability to improve interaction with content are what we know well, improved if you compare it with iPad 9.7, thanks to the extra space available. The Apple pen was and remains a niche product but one that favors the adoption of iPad 7 by creatives and artists short on the budget.

We discuss, as we have always discussed, the bizarre system of charging through the Lightning port that forces you to stick the pen into the iPad for charging in a position that runs the risk of destroying the pen or iPad or both. Fortunately, there is always an alternative solution using an adapter (included in the package) and a classic Lightning cable, even if by doing so you partially lose the convenience of using iPad for charging.

Operating System and Process.


 Apple iPad 7 powered by the A10 Fusion. It comes with 4 cores and 16nm build. It is an old CPU but it still works well for normal use. It first appeared in 2016 in the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.

As for the Apple iPad 10.2 GPU, The GPU is the PowerVR Series7XT Plus. In Geekbench 5 the CPU scored 565 points for single-core and 1080 points for multicores.

This 10.2 iPad can give you a decent PUBG gaming experience, although performance is not the best. This iPad allows you to choose until 60fps while playing. The performance is pretty smooth yet sometimes it is a bit annoying especially in environments with more textures. This happens while playing on the 10.2 iPad for too long.

For ForNight, although you can play at the medium 60fps instead of 30fps as it used to be, the general performance is still not good. The quality of the characters and the texture is not that great. The quality of the game is lacking all the time, the longer you play, the worse quality you get. So, even though you can play at 60fps, the game is lacking most of the time and it is not smooth. There are even times where the fps drop down to the 20's. In other words, we don't recommend this iPad for such competitive games.

According to the operating system,  The 10.2 iPad runs also on the new iPad OS. From the first start we are greeted by a new Home screen that takes advantage of the large display, showing notifications and customizable widgets on the left, the app icons in the widest area on the right, finally at the bottom a dock that immediately recalls that of the Macs , containing the main apps the user can choose, as well as the three most recently launched apps.

Apple has also significantly enhanced and improved the functions for multitasking . With Slide Over we can open two apps at the same time or multiple windows of the same app, convenient for example to read on the Internet with Safari, compare multiple articles in the browser, or to browse and take notes in Notes.

Just remember that only apps that are in the Dock can be dragged with a short swipe from the edge of the screen. If, on the other hand, we swipe our finger to the center of the screen, we open Slide Over Switcher which shows a thumbnail of all the open apps to choose from. Now it is also possible to open more windows of the same, indifferently to the right and left, and also to scroll between these with a swipe at the bottom.

We can also create different workspaces containing the apps we need, quickly switch between apps and workspaces with App Switcher. Among the most important improvements are those introduced in Safari which is now declared by Apple complete with all the functions we are used to using on Mac, including support for web apps, including WordPress, the productivity apps Google Docs, Squarespace, just for mention the most famous. Finally now Safari in iPadOS also gets a download manager to download and access files and documents directly from the tablet.

This latest innovation goes perfectly with the enhancement of Files, the app for browsing and managing files and folders on iPad. They are now also shown in a new column which is useful for better scrolling through folders and sub folders. You can access networked SMB file servers, iCloud Drive, preview the selected file on the fly, and memory sticks and external hard drives are also supported, as long as you buy a Lightning to USB adapter.

iPad improves nearly every aspect of iPad productivity and operation , including Apple Pencil. Cupertino declares a further reduced latency: we have a redesigned palette of tools, repositionable where we prefer, and also a gesture with Pencil to transform email messages, web pages, maps, iWork documents into PDF documents on the fly that we can annotate and highlight with Apple Pencil, ready to be shared on the fly with friends and colleagues.

The list of iPadOS news still includes the arrival of numerous shortcuts (with Smart Keyboard connected) identical to those that Mac users have been using for years, new gestures for text editing (selection, cursor management, selection, copy, cut and paste with three-finger gestures, the double three-finger tap to cancel the last entry and more), QuickType to type quickly on the virtual keyboard without ever lifting your finger from the screen, the new repositionable miniaturized virtual keyboard, the management of different graphic fonts to be used that can be purchased on the App Store, Dark Mode and in combination with macOS Catalina, also Sidecar to transform iPad and Apple Pencil into a graphic tablet of the Mac.

The innovations introduced in iPadOS tailored to iPad are numerous, all effective and powerful. There is no doubt that with iPadOS, Apple's tablets, all included, even this inexpensive 10.2 ”iPad reviewed here, become more complete and versatile productivity tools. The opinion on the new Apple operating system for tablets is certainly positive but with a clarification. Those who want to take advantage of these functions must budget some time to devote not only to familiarize themselves with the new commands and gestures, but also with a significantly different workflow from what we are used to on a Mac or Windows PC.

Conclusion.


iPad 7 is all definitely not for the folks who bought the iPad last year, which we said was “professional enough for a lot of us” - and we still think so. This model works pretty much the same, the previous version supported the keyboard better, and its smaller size even makes it slightly more portable.

If you're new to iPad and just want to play Apple Arcade games, browse the web, or watch videos, we would even go so far as to say that you should buy this model instead.

Apple will eventually make all of its iPads compatible with USB-C, but for now, you can continue to use your Lightning cables with your tablet.

Nonetheless, for first-time buyers, we see this model as a powerful statement from Apple, and we've been building this moment for a while. Along with gimmicks like a plastic-coated display and Pros' 120Hz ProMotion refresh rate, the cheapest iPad now has a lot of features you'd expect from one of the company's sexiest tablets. This year, Apple started that trend by incorporating Apple Pencil support into all of its current tablet models last year. It complemented it this year by bringing a ton of interfaces and productivity gains to all iPads with iPadOS.

And this market for first-time buyers may be about to get a little bigger. Since the launch of Apple Arcade, dozens of people have wondered about the "best and cheapest" type of Apple device they should get for the service. We believe this device fits that description perfectly.

By including options like the smart connector and improving the screen size, Apple has made the iPad as attractive as it possibly can without changing the price, and as such we consider it a silent push. and rare to bring people into the world of Apple. wider ecosystem making it an extremely attractive entry-level device. It's also a relatively affordable Apple device to buy if you want to take advantage of Apple's one-year free Apple TV + deal with the purchase of a new Apple device. And once the price drops at third-party retailers - and it inevitably will be in the coming months - it will be even more appealing. What do you think? Have you lied an eye on the tablet? Do you recommend it? Can we consider the negative sides that the iPad 7 has a great deal? Share your knowledge in the comments section below.
