Design and Display
Design wise, the new iPad didn’t feature any new design as Apple are well known for NOT introducing any new design for its iPad series. But when compared to the iPad Air 2, you may find it hard but it is 25% brighter on the screen and the company says it tops out at 500 nits with a more stronger backlight.

The iPad is more friendly, thin and a little bit lighter on the hand. There is the home button at the front housing the Touch ID fingerprint scanner and Apple’s logo at the back.
Apple still finds it not-inspiring to bring in the force-sensitive one on the iPhone 7. On the physical appearance, the screen is surrounded by large bezels and a front-facing camera at the top with a volume buttons sit on the right edge, and a power button on the top edge.
Although, the iPad (2017) might come with some cool features but it still lacks the high-end specs such as; P3 color gamut, SRGB, true tone. When inside a room, the screen do not not adjust the display to match the color temperature of the room’s lighting.
