Apple launches new 9.7-inch iPad aimed at students and teachers

2018 iPad

As expected, Apple announced a new 9.7-inch iPad at its education event in Chicago. The next-generation model features similar specs to the discontinued 9.7-inch iPad Pro. It even includes Apple Pencil support and a faster A10 Fusion chip. Current iPad Pro models, like the 10.5-inch, are powered by Apple's A10X chip, as a comparison. The 9.7-inch iPad does not ship with Smart Connector and True Tone display, like the pro models.

Does the 9.7-inch iPad (2018) support the Apple Pencil?

The 9.7-inch iPad launched at Apple's education event on March 27, 2018 does support the Apple Pencil. This makes it the first non-iPad Pro model to support the $99 stylus.

Apple did release a 9.7-inch iPad Pro that supported the Apple Pencil, but it was eventually replaced by the larger 10.5-inch model. The current 9.7-inch model is also cheaper at $329 for consumers and $299 for schools.
