Several weeks ago, Apple unveiled the new 2018 iPad at its education-focused event in Chicago. From the offset it looks nothing different from the old iPad, which isn’t really a bad thing. The good stuff, of course, lies underneath. And the accessible price tag is a bonus. The good news? It’s now available in Malaysia.

Apple’s latest tablet rocks the same 9.7-inch IPS Retina Display (2014×1536 @ 264ppi) as its predecessor, and yes with the same bezels.

Here’s the big but. But… it now boasts Apple Pencil support, for the very first time, something only the much pricier iPad Pro had before.

This means students and more casual and budget-strapped users can make use of the brilliant Apple Pencil for writing, doodling, drawing and taking down notes.

Under the hood, it gets a beefed up A10 Fusion Chip with embedded M10 corprocessor and comes in 32GB and 128GB storage options.

Like its predecessor, it boasts up to 10 hours of battery life and it runs iOS 11 out-of-the-box.

As revealed previously, the new iPad is priced from MYR1,449 for the basic 32GB Wi-Fi model, all the way up to MYR2,399 for the 128GB Wi-Fi + Cellular model.

The Apple Pencil is an optional purchase at MYR419. In the US, Logitech offers and alternative stylus called the Crayon (only for education market).

As this is an education-focused product, Apple offers it at a lower price compared to retail channels. If you’re a student, an educator or represent a school, you’re in luck. Here’s how to get education pricing for the new iPad.
