2021 iPad 9th Gen Unboxig and Review

2021 iPad 9th Gen Unboxig and Review-it's Carl and happy apple season. We just had the latest keynote event, where we got a bunch of different upgrades coming to the app Alliance, of course, the iPad 9th Gen Mini beside me, the Apple watch, as well as the new iPhone. So all that coverage coming the channel. Be sure to subscribe if you already. Haven't this unboxing though is all about the entry-level iPad. So this is the 9th gen iPad now. And in my opinion, this was maybe one of the more underwhelming announcements, not to say that. It is an important because this is the best-selling iPads, the cheapest iPad that you can

But we kind of saw bigger upgrades, say coming to the mini that got a brand-new design refresh. Whereas this OG iPad still carries the same footprint. I believe this is out. Now for five six, seven years, it Remains the only iPad in the range that still uses lightning and still has Touch ID, but we'll get to that in a second. We will do a quick unboxing to see what's inside and you can see kind of on the box, the little iPad silhouette. Same design like I mentioned available only in two colors. So the space gray and And silver, and the iPad unboxing is very standard stuff. We've got, of course, the iPad up, top underneath. We've got the classic user manuals warranty info designed by California in apple. If that's the first time you've heard it here on the channel. It's kind of a running joke. Maybe I should develop a shirt or something that says that not too sure if anyone would actually buy that, let me know. But we've also got the quick start guides and a little SIM card slot tool because I do have these cellular version as well. And Apple stickers in white you'll still get to

 Nice to see that. We have introduced the box size the iPad. Yet. You've got a 20 watt charger and a lightning to USB C cable. Nice to see that. Apple didn't slim down the box and get rid of the charging cables like they did for the iPhone line. And here is the iPad as it boots up, and you can see cellular version is cut this little black band up top, but very iconic design for an iPad. It's kind of what we know what we love setup is super simple and we've got that Classic Touch ID, but not front. So this is the last iPad. That's still features. Has a physical button. We're now moving away from that going into face ID, but I know there's a big following on the actual little button. I know with covid, you typically have to enter your passcode on your iPhone, but the more updated iPad Air, and that new iPad Mini has Touch ID built into the top little button, the on and off button now, and I will say coming from the iPad Air, the iPad Pros, obviously, those are more expensive devices, but going down to their base level model. I haven't seen bezels this big in quite a long time.

And I know that apple is always working to reduce bezel sizes. I wouldn't have minded if they kept that touch ID button, but kind of Shrunk the top forehead, its massive. Now the side bezels which are still a tad bit chunky, but I can give them that. It's just the front top forehead. I know that front facing camera is being improved and new 12 megapixel ultra-wide. We now have center stage, but I still don't think it takes up this much space because we have that same sensor on the iPad. Air's and you don't See this giant forehead across any of the other iPad line. So I think Apple maybe next year, could kind of slim that down, make it the same as the side bezels, just personal preference. What you're getting inside has also been updated. So now comes with the a13 bionic. So that came with the iPhone 11/11 Pro. It's a couple years old now though. Apple gives you numbers 20% faster GPU performance. That's of course compared to the previous gen entry-level iPad. But what makes this nice? They still keep that low.

 Explain so 329 bucks. And of course 429 if you're here in Canada, I know that are dollar stocks with that, you get double the storage. So 64 gigs, and I know that still seems a bit low, but crazy to think that last year's entry level iPad started at 32 gigs, which was ridiculously too small. I think for that base level option you can manage to get by whereas last year, 32 gigs was almost a. No. No, you still got the same all-day battery life and that 10.2 inch display. Like I said, it hasn't really changed Dimension wise. We now have true tone. So that will actively change, depending the time of the day, or depending on the color of the light. So at nighttime, it will become a bit more. Yellowish. You won't see as much blue light a bit easier to see, or I guess manage on your eyes and probably the biggest support coming to the iPad is now the inclusion of some accessories. So you still are limited to the first gen apple pencil because it still has lightning on the bottom. It still has that really weird charging mechanism. So once you've got a paired, you need to stick the ogee apple pencil into the bottom.

And you can now slowly start to Juice It Up. Once again, the only iPad that can still do this, not the most clever. And you always have to watch out if you actually snap this you'll probably wreck your lightning Port. So just let it juice up. Let it sit on the table off to the side. But with that said, you still get a really great writing experience and although the first gen apple pencil is quite old. Now. It's not as responsive as the second gen. I still think this is better than any other tablet. / stylist combo. We've seen on the market and especially because you can get by at 3:29. The apple pencil an extra hundred bucks. I think this combo is a lot more attractive. Whereas last year. Here you'd have to get 64 gig options. That's a hundred bucks more. You kind of get what I'm saying. It just becomes a lot more entry-level and a lot more budget-friendly. You also have the option to pair it now with a smart keyboard, and will slowly get this out and now becomes a lot better to say browse the web, of course, comrade, emails. Do. I think the iPad can be your only device? This is where it comes down to the limitations of iPad OS. And even if you were to grab the more expensive iPad Air, even the thousand-dollar iPad Pro,

 I still don't think you can be as first tile and get as much done as you need to get on, say laptop. I'll create a separate video comparing every single iPad line, but until iPad OS, truly becomes more versatile and less like iOS and more like say Mac OS. I still think this is a secondary device, but as say a student, maybe if you're in high school or if the max that you're doing is just word processing. Checking out your emails. Of course, this becomes a great media device. The screen is great if you want to use the apple pencil to draw. Draw then. Yeah, the iPad can definitely get by but say someone like myself that does a ton of video editing. I'm over on Final Cut. There is still nothing that comes close to that experience on iPad just yet. But I do think a lot of people will agree with me on that. But anyways, this is the entry-level iPod. Apple always says, this is the best selling iPad and I think it's just become more attractive. Now. We've that increase in storage with the accessory, support and still keeping that price point at three hundred and thirty dollars.

The chipset is being improved. The performance is great. And unless you have this side-by-side, SE the mini, the pro, the iPad Air, you won't really notice too much. In terms of stutter. I think that's just a testament to how good iPad OS is over on the cameras. Like I said, we've got that big Improvement coming to the front facing camera. You'll notice that the most in things like FaceTime, of course, having Center Stage to include multiple people. If you are that person that takes selfies, still think it looks weird. They look half decent maybe a tad bit fuzzy, but I wouldn't be to nitpick. See with this on the back. You've got the 8 megapixel rear camera. Like I said, don't be that person that takes photos with your iPad. I think it's the weirdest. Look, I see a lot of tourists doing it. My mom is a very guilty person that does that as well. So Mom, if you ever watch this, I'm sorry for laughing at you, but you do. Look at a bit strange. I do. Wish we got a bit of a design refresh, especially with that front forehead. I'm not going to cry about Touch ID. I still think it's a great option to have and I do still think the entry-level iPad has a solid place.

 In the iPad lineup, especially coming in at that price. It's way cheaper than any other option that you can get. And I know a lot of people do want to see the iPad Mini unbox, so that will be the next vid. Make sure your sub that video is next on deck and we've got all Apple stuff, Apple Watch, series 7, and of course, iPhone 13s, make sure your guys are sobbed.
