When it comes to design, the 8th generation iPad looks very similar to its predecessor. It’s still equipped with the same 10.2-inch display and it still only comes with support for the 1st generation Apple Pencil. The major difference with this new entry-level iPad is its processing speed.

The A12 Bionic processor performs significantly better compared to the older A10 chip found in the 7th generation 10.2-inch iPad. The introduction of the A12 Bionic processor also means that the this new iPad is equipped with a Neural Engine for the first time, which enables machine learning capabilities.

Unfortunately, unlike the iPad Air 2020 model which features a USB Type-C port, the new 8th generation iPad is still fitted with the old Lightning port.
