iPad 9th Gen 10.2 (2021) - Unboxing and First Impressions!

iPad 9th Gen 10.2 (2021) - Unboxing and First Impressions!

In this video, we're going to look at the new entry-level Ipad 9 or 9th generation. This comes in space, gray or silver. Same storage options as the Ipad Mini, 64 gigabytes or 256. Price starts at 329 bucks for the 64 gig, 479 bucks for the 256.. you can also add about 130 bucks for the cellular version. It also works with the Apple Pencil first generation and a Smart keyboard. This one now has the 813 Bionic chip. They claim this one's 20 faster Gpu and performance and then of course what Apple always advertises all day battery life And then of course this comes with Ipad Os 15. it also comes with a 12 megapixel ultra wide front camera with the addition of center stage which is supposed to boost the image quality and then an 8 megapixel wide angle camera there on the back. It still has the same 10.2 inch Led backlit Ips display 2160 by 1620 resolution and 500 nits brightness. So let's go ahead and open it up and see what we've got. Looks like they're still throwing in Apple stickers, so that's good to see. Quick start guide and safety and warranty information.

You're also going to get a 20 watt Usbc charging brick. Unfortunately, this one's still using the Lightning to Usb C connector, but obviously they're trying to keep the price down on this one to stay as cheap as possible as you can see.

It's a pretty familiar design here, pretty much identical as the last two generations, power and volume buttons still in the same locations, and the same thing with the rear-facing camera. You've still got the rather large bezels here at the top and bottom, but in my opinion I actually prefer this touch Id versus on the power button, but I'm sure not everyone's going to agree with that. Then you have the selfie camera right in the center there towards the top Again, just like the previous models. If you're wanting the physical touch Id on the front instead of the power button and a headphone jack, this is going to be the only ipad left that has both of those things.

Now when setting up you can restore from Icloud backup. You can also restore it from a Mac or Pc, transfer directly from another ipad, or you can even move data from an Android device. Nice thing is if you're upgrading from a 7th or 8th generation ipad, you should be able to use the same cases and accessories on this newer Ipad 9..

The only thing is with this new Ipad Os 15, I don't know. I don't know if I'm a big fan of some of these widgets and how they make the icons smaller. First thing I would do is go into your settings and go to home screen and dock and then choose use large app icons. I don't know. To me it just looks more normal for an ipad, but they're still adding this extra padding here around the icons That just seems a little bit odd to me. I don't know. maybe that's just me. Nice thing is this is going to work with the first gin Apple pencil or there's a lot of third-party pencils as well, such as this one from Logitech. And then let's say you're not using some of these widgets on here. If you just hold down on it, you can say remove stack, swipe down in the right hand corner to get your control center where you're going to get your usual stuff screen brightness, volume shortcuts to Wi-fi bluetooth camera timer right out of the box it's using about 13.6 gigabytes of the 64 gig storage and then you can swipe up from the left hand corner to do a screenshot and then swipe down anywhere on the screen where you can do a search.

One other thing you'll notice is down here in the dock you've got your app library. that sort of groups everything on the ipad, so I don't know. It might be a little bit easier to access everything from there versus swiping over about 10 times before you find the right app. and then of course, just like on pretty much all ipads, it's going to be really good for reading text or just browsing online. They've always done a really nice job with screen resolution and everything looking just nice and crisp. Overall, just a really nice affordable way to get an ipad, Hook it up to a keyboard and mouse and be a little more productive.

Let's do a quick sound test with the speakers just to give you an idea of what to expect [Music] So it feels like the speakers on this one is pretty much the same as the last two generations. plenty loud enough. It's just that it's only on one side, so you either have to cup it with your hands so it kind of goes towards you or just face it this way I guess so it's louder. Definitely not going to be the best as far as tablets go, but overall not too bad. And then the one thing I don't like is it doesn't let you pinch to zoom to kind of fill the rest of the screen. and then in the camera app you're going to have Pano Square photo video, slow-mo and time-lapse lets you zoom in at 5x for a photo. You've also got a 3 second and 10 second timer and you can turn live photo on and off. Looks like.

Overall the quality is actually pretty good on here, of course in studio lighting, let me give you a few more samples of photos and video just to give you an idea of what to expect. Overall, I think this entry level ipad actually takes decent photos. While not the best quality for video, it definitely gets the job done and the extra wide angle lens on the front facing camera is definitely a nice addition to this tablet as well. Ugh. [Music] Hey [Music] As far as performance goes, this is going to be right in line with other devices from Apple that have the A13 Bionic chip with the single core score. It's going to be right in line with the Iphone 11 Pro: Same thing with multi-core scores. Then when you compare to the Ipad 8, it's actually quite a bit faster in both single core and multi-core scores. Am I testing for gaming? Pubg Mobile Asphalt 9 played nice and smooth again just like the previous gen ipads. And if you want an ipad and you don't want to spend a lot of money, I feel like it's really tough to beat this entry-level Ipad 9.. However, if you already have the ipad 7th Gen or 8th Gen, I don't think you're the person that's going to want to upgrade to this because it's going to feel like you have the exact same ipad. But if you are someone who has say an Ipad Air 2 or older, this would definitely be a nice upgrade.

I just did a video on the new Ipad Mini 6 and I'll be doing the iphone 13 coming up, so if you haven't already, you'll definitely want to check those out. Just let me know if you want me to compare this to other tablets out there, I already have a couple in mind that I might do later this week.

But yeah, my first impressions of the new Ipad 9. It's a really good, affordable option. I just don't think it's a big enough upgrade if you already have the Ipad 7th or 8th generation. So if you've made it this far into the video, you may want to say thanks by subscribing. And don't forget to give a thumbs up if this video was helpful.

This is Brian from Fishbee Productions. Thanks for watching and I'll see you on the next one. Okay,
