The specs of the device remain more or less the same, with one big change. Apple replaced the old A8X chip with the 64-bit A9, first seen in the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus.

The new iPad is also a bit thicker at 7.5mm due to a bigger 32.4Wh battery.

The good news is that the new iPad will be cheaper than its predecessor. The base model will start at $329, while the 32GB Wi-Fi and cellular model version will be priced at $459.

The new iPad will be available in Silver, Space Gray, and Gold starting March 24th.
