Apple unveils iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini at the company’s biggest event of the year

Apple’s first big product reveal at the event was the latest version of the iPad and a 5G-capable iPad Mini.

Here’s a look at some of the specs:

The iPad

Under the hood, the 10.2-inch iPad features a powerful A13 chip with 20% faster performance than the previous model. Apple says it’s now 3 times faster than a Chromebook. It comes with a new 12MP ultrawide camera with Center Stage, which uses machine learning to adjust the front-facing camera during FaceTime video calls, and more accessory support that works with the first-generation Apple Pencil. It also supports a True Tone feature that adjusts the screen’s color temperature to ambient lighting.

It costs $329 for 64GB storage — double the storage that typically ships on an entry-level iPad. For schools, the device costs $299. Pre-orders start today and shipping begins next week.

iPad Mini

The 8.3-inch iPad mini now comes with smaller bezels, more rounded corners, upgraded cameras on the front and back, Apple’s Liquid retina display, USB-C support, magnetic support for Apple Pencil, an updated speaker system and new colors, such as pink and purple. It starts at $499.
