The iPad 10 (2022) was made official yesterday alongside the new iPad Pro M2. With its new design and its new SoC, the tenth generation of the iPad brings great new features, even if its transition to USB-C complicates things for using it with the Apple Pencil.
The iPad 10 is equipped with the A14 Bionic SoC and is 5G compatible To use the Apple Pencil, you will need an adapter which costs 10 euros
In terms of design, the iPad 10 (2022) is a clone of the iPad Air 5. The LCD screen is now larger with its 10.9-inch diagonal and has a resolution of 2360×1640 pixels. The maximum brightness is 500 Nits. Unfortunately, the display still only supports the 1st generation Apple Pencil. USB-C finally replaces the Lightning port and headphone jack. Apple also repositioned the fingerprint scanner and removed the home button, allowing for thinner bezels.
