At the Apple event on Tuesday we got some new iPad announcements. The iPad 8th-generation comes with the A12 chip, and the new iPad Air that looks like an iPad Pro and has Touch ID in the power button.
The iPad no-name is still around and just got some much-need updates. It has the A12 Bionic Chip that brings the Neural Engine to this model, a 10.2-inch Retina display that fits into a 100% recycled aluminum enclosure, compatibility with Smart Keyboard and Apple Pencil 1st-gen, up to 128GB storage, Lightning port, and an 8MP camera.
