The new 10.2-inch iPad 2021 model does not get a design refresh like the iPad mini.

The iPad (9th generation) is powered by the A13 Bionic chipset, which delivers a 20 percent performance boost over the previous generation. The new iPad supports the 1st generation Apple Pencil.

The iPad mini comes in four new colours – pink, starlight, purple, and space gray. The Touch ID has been moved to the top button much like the one on the iPad Air. Center Stage, which is a feature seen on the iPad Pro, comes to the iPad mini. It can detect people and move the frame around automatically. The iPad mini features a 12MP ultra-wide front camera with a larger field-of-view and a 12MP rear camera as well. The tablet ships with iPadOS 15. iPad mini price in India starts from Rs 46,900 for the Wi-Fi model and Rs 60,900 for the Wi-Fi + Cellular model.

Meanwhile, the new iPhone 13 has been launched. It will mirror the iPhone 12 family of phones,  iPhone 13 Mini, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max. The new iPhones have come up with upgrades. The iPhone 13 starts with 128GB of storage.

The devices are said to be powered by Apple's next-generation A15 chip manufactured based on TSMC's 5nm+ process. The entire iPhone 13 range is to sport the LiDAR sensor. The sensor first appeared in the latest generation iPad Pro in March this year followed by the iPhones. The display has 1200 nits brightness and the XDR display promises a brighter, richer experience for users. The display sizes are 6.1-inch and 5.4-inches for the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini.
