Apple has started selling the iPad (2018) in India. The new iPad model is available online in the country via Flipkart. Gadgets 360 has learnt that the iPad (2018) is now also available via offline stores in the country. Presently, the iPad (2018) 32GB Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi + Cellular variants are listed as available for purchase on Flipkart, though the other variants can be expected to become available as time passes. Launched in March, the new iPad comes with a starting price of Rs. 28,000 and supports the Apple Pencil that is separately on sale at Rs. 7,600.
Flipkart is offering a five percent instant discount (up to Rs. 200) on purchasing the iPad (2018) using Axis Buzz Credit Card. Further, there are no-cost EMI options starting from Rs. 3,112. The new iPad comes in Silver, Gold, and Space Gray colour options.
The iPad (2018) has specifications similar to the iPad (2017). However, its 9.7-inch Retina (2048×1536 pixels) IPS display supports the Apple Pencil stylus. There is also the Apple A10 Fusion SoC, which comes as a significant upgrade over the Apple A9 SoC that was featured on last year’s iPad.
Apple has provided an 8-megapixel rear camera on the iPad (2018) with an f/2.4 aperture. The iPad also has a 1.2-megapixel FaceTime HD camera with an f/2.2 aperture. On the connectivity front, there is 4G LTE and A-GPS (on the Wi-Fi + Cellular model), as well as Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth v4.2, and a Lightning port. The iPad features a Touch ID fingerprint sensor and includes an accelerometer, ambient light sensor, barometer, digital compass, and a three-axis gyroscope.
