Design

Apple iPad 9.7 (2018)

Sports an Aluminum Alloy overall unibody that’s sleek with curved edges, exactly the way Apple makes them. With the Apple logo always glaring at the middle and adds a certain amount of sophistication to the tablet.

There’s a rear camera sitting at the top left corner with no LED flash in sight. Turning over to the sides, it measures 7.5mm slim, making it one of the most thinnest tablets ever. However, it’s quite heavy, weighing 478g and available in Gray, Gold and Silver colors.

Display

Apple iPad 9.7 (2018)

I think at some point, we all thought the 2018 version of the Apple iPad 9.7 will come with a bezel-less display. Well, that’s not the case here, sporting lots of bezels including the physical home button which doubles as the fingerprint scanner. While the top bezel houses only the selfie camera and the narrow bezels coming out to play as well.

The 9.7-inch QXGA IPS LED capacitive touchscreen is ideal for gaming and watching movies. Boasting of a resolution of 1548 x 2036 pixels with 264 pixel per inch density, dishing out a Retina HD display. The screen boasts of Oelophobic Coating, scratch resistant, LED-Backlit and stretches up to 71.80% screen to body ratio.
