iFixit has completed its teardown of the new 10.2-inch iPad and uncovered the same 8,227 mAh/32.9 Wh battery as the sixth-generation 9.7-inch iPad, while RAM has been increased from 2GB to 3GB.


The 10.2-inch iPad is similar to the sixth-generation 9.7-inch iPad, with the same A10 Fusion chip and Apple Pencil support, but it has a larger display and a Smart Connector that enables support for Apple’s full-sized Smart Keyboard. Pricing continues to start at $329 in the United States.

Given the minor refresh, the 10.2-inch iPad has few hardware changes over the 9.7-inch iPad beyond the larger display, addition of a Smart Connector, and an extra GB of RAM. Repairability remains low due to strong adhesives and a soldered Lightning connector, although display repairs remain feasible.
