This is the first time the front-facing camera on an iPad has been placed along the landscape edge.

iPad accessories expand iPad’s versatility and allow it to be more creative and productive. Magic Keyboard Folio’s full-size keys, 1mm travel, and responsive feel make it an incredible typing experience for new iPads.

New 14-key function row makes it easy to access shortcuts and everyday tasks, such as adjusting the volume or display brightness.
It features a magnetically attached protective back cover and a detachable keyboard that are highly configurable and versatile. A magnetic connector on the edge of the iPad provides power and data to the keyboard. As a result, the keyboard never needs to be charged or paired, and users can fold it behind the iPad or remove it completely. Playing games, watching video, and more can be made even more flexible with the adjustable stand on the back cover.
The new features in Messages allow users to edit or unsend recently sent messages, recover recently deleted messages, and mark conversations as unread. This will enable them to revisit them at a later time. The new collaboration features in Messages make it easier to start and manage shared projects.
In a first for iPad, multiple printed circuit boards are plated with 100 percent recycled gold in the new iPad models to minimize their environmental impact. A 100 percent recycled copper foil is used on the main logic board of the new iPad, making it the first iPad with recycled copper. Additionally, it contains recycled aluminum, tin, and rare earth elements. There is no mercury, BFR, PVC, or beryllium in any iPad model that meets Apple’s high standards for energy efficiency. A redesigned packaging eliminates the outer plastic wrap, and more than 97 percent of the packaging is fiber-based, bringing Apple closer to its goal to eliminate plastic from all packaging by 2025.
Apple currently operates carbon neutrally on a global scale and plans to be carbon neutral throughout the entire manufacturing supply chain by 2030. This means that every Apple device sold, from component manufacturing, assembly, transport, customer use, charging, all the way through recycling and material recovery, will have net-zero climate impact.
