With iPad, you get what you need from a computer, along with many incredible things you’d never expect from one. Here are a few reasons why your next computer just might be an iPad.
iPad features advanced, Apple‑designed chips that transform how you experience photos, gaming and augmented reality. They also make iPad powerful enough to handle the apps you use every day. Even pro apps like Adobe Photoshop CC. Adobe Photoshop CC is coming to iPad in 2019.
And all that power really travels. iPad is incredibly thin and so light you can carry it with you everywhere. And it has up to 10 hours of battery life to keep you going all day. Stay connected on the go with fast Wi‑Fi and up to Gigabit‑class LTE. You can even print, project and send files wirelessly.
iPad does what a computer does, but in more intuitive ways. Use multiple apps at the same time with a few taps. Move objects between apps simply by dragging and dropping, or switch apps with a single swipe.
It’s familiar to use but makes for an entirely new experience. iPad runs iPadOS, which is full of features designed specifically for iPad. But it’s also built on the same foundation as iOS, so it shares many of the same great apps and features. And just like your iPhone, using iPad is as simple as tap, swipe, pinch and zoom.
iPad works with a keyboard when you need one. The onscreen keyboard lets you respond to an email or write a report, and it even acts as a trackpad. And if you want a physical keyboard, just attach the Smart Keyboard for a great typing experience that also doubles as a cover, or easily pair a Bluetooth® keyboard.
But it’s also a notepad, canvas and scanner, and the perfect device for AR. Take notes or create a sketch with Apple Pencil.5 Scan a document with the built‑in camera, then mark it up and send it. Or transform your world with augmented reality experiences, which combine digital objects and information with the real world.
iPad has great apps you’ll use every day. Like Photos, Messages, Apple News, Safari, Mail, Calendar and more. It also comes with great productivity apps like Pages and Keynote, and runs familiar apps like Microsoft Word and Adobe Photoshop CC.
All your files in one central location. With the Files app, you can access and manage what’s in iCloud Drive, on third‑party cloud services such as Box and Dropbox, and on your iPad.
And with iCloud, all your important stuff is on all your devices. Safely store your photos, videos, music, apps, files, contacts and more. So everything’s always available on your iPad, iPhone and Mac, and even from a Windows PC.
Your stuff is safe. That’s because iPad comes with advanced security features like Face ID or Touch ID for secure authentication. The authentication data is encrypted and protected by the Secure Enclave on your device, not stored on Apple servers or backed up to iCloud. iPadOS also has features like Intelligent Tracking Prevention in Safari, which helps protect against websites collecting your personal data.
With iPad, you get hassle‑free updates. Turn on Automatic Updates in iPadOS and have free updates downloaded wirelessly on your iPad as soon as they’re released. So you have the newest features, most advanced technologies and latest security updates.
We believe technology is most powerful when it empowers everyone. That’s why iPad comes with accessibility features that support vision, hearing, mobility and learning needs. Including Voice Control, which lets you command your iPad with just your voice, and Switch Control, which lets you interact with iPad without touching it.
The new iPad combines the power and capability of a computer with the versatility and ease of use you’d never expect from one. And now it’s even more versatile, with a larger 10.2‑inch Retina display, support for the full-sized Smart Keyboard and the amazing new capabilities of iPadOS. It’s unbelievably fun. And unmistakably iPad.
With iPad, getting work done is all hustle and no hassle. You can easily edit a document while researching something on the web and making a FaceTime call to a colleague — all at the same time. Manage all your files in one convenient spot with the Files app. And when you want to write a report or create a presentation, you can simply use the onscreen keyboard or attach the full‑sized Smart Keyboard.
From taking notes in class to writing a quick to-do list, using Apple Pencil with iPad is the best way to get what’s in your brain down on the page. Do things like sign paperwork, mark up a document or sketch an idea. It feels as natural to use as a pencil, but with so much more capability.
Let your curiosity run wild with iPad. The App Store is the best place to discover apps that let you get a leg-up in geometry, learn a new language and practise composing your own music. You can even use augmented reality to learn something exciting, like watching the history of spaceflight unfold in your lounge room or making characters from your favourite book literally leap off the page.
It’s go time for gaming. The A10 Fusion chip delivers amazing performance, so games are immersive, fluid and incredibly detailed. And you can pair an Xbox Wireless Controller with Bluetooth®, PlayStation DUALSHOCK® 4 controller or MFi game controller with your iPad to create the ultimate portable game console. You can also try out Apple Arcade, a game subscription service unlike any other, with over 100 insanely fun new games to play.
iPad lets you express your creative ideas in so many ways. Whether you’re painting a watercolour, designing a logo or just sketching up a storm, Apple Pencil is the perfect tool to bring your vision to life. It’s designed to feel intuitive and let you draw with pixel‑perfect precision.
No matter how you capture your photos and videos — with the 8-megapixel back camera or the FaceTime HD camera on iPad, with an iPhone or with a digital camera — you’ll love editing them on the large, immersive screen of your iPad. Add fun effects, apply filters, crop or rotate. Once you’ve got your perfect shot, share it to your social feeds or send it to friends with a tap.
With a thin and light design, and fast Wi‑Fi and Gigabit‑class LTE, iPad is designed to go where your life goes. So you can browse the web, download books and more, wherever you are. And with up to 10 hours of battery life, you can do it all on a single charge. It does pretty much everything but carry itself.
There are over a million apps on the App Store specifically designed for the large display and power of iPad. Make a beat, get a workout in, read the news or join a battle royale with friends. Whatever you’re interested in, you’ll find an app for it.
Like every Apple product, iPad was designed with your privacy and security in mind. Sign in with Apple lets you sign in securely to selected apps and participating websites with the Apple ID you already have. And Touch ID makes unlocking your iPad and making purchases with Apple Pay simple and secure.
Technology is most powerful when everyone can use it. That’s why iPad comes with accessibility features that support vision, hearing, mobility and learning needs. Use Voice Control to control your iPad with just your voice and Magnifier to make small type easier to read.
With incredible detail and vivid colours, the new, larger Retina display is perfect for watching a movie, working on a project and drawing your next masterpiece.
With features specifically designed for iPad, iPadOS includes intuitive multitasking, a new Home screen and desktop-class browsing to make using iPad more powerful, fun and productive.
Just attach the full-sized Smart Keyboard to your iPad and start typing — no charging or pairing required. And when you’re finished, it folds up to become a slim, lightweight cover.
Apple Pencil features the precision, responsiveness and natural fluidity of a traditional writing instrument, and the versatility to become so much more. With it, you can turn iPad into your notepad, canvas or just about anything else you can imagine.
The large Retina display combined with advanced sensors and cameras makes iPad perfect for immersive AR experiences that enhance the way you play, shop and learn.
