The new entry-level iPad display lacks the anti-reflective coating that helps minimize glare in light, and only supports sRGB colors, not the industry-wide standard P3 wide color.


Apple is listing on its website its new entry-level ‘iPad’ with the same Liquid Retina display as the fifth-generation iPad Air, with a resolution of 2360 x 1640 at 264 ppi (pixels per inch). However, unlike the ‌iPad Air‌, the new entry-level ‌iPad‌ doesn’t support P3 wide color, doesn’t have an anti-reflective coating, and doesn’t have a fully laminated display, according to Apple’s website.

The new entry-level ‌iPad‌ also lacks support for the second-generation Apple Pencil and still only supports the first-generation ‌Apple Pencil‌. Since the new ‌iPad‌ has a USB-C port, customers will need to use an adapter to charge their ‌iPad‌ and Apple Pencil. Apple sells an adapter for $9, but now an adapter is included in the box along with the first generation “Apple Pencil”.
