The iPad Pro (2022) was launched in India on Tuesday and features the company’s latest M2 chip, used in the new MacBook Air earlier this year, as well as support for 5G connectivity. The Cupertino-based company also announced a new, redesigned 10th generation iPad powered by the A14 Bionic SoC. The company also introduced a new Apple TV 4K model with the A15 Bionic chip under the hood, which is also used in the latest iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus models.
On this week’s edition of the Gadgets 360 Orbital podcast, host Ahil Arora talks with executive editor Jamshed Avari and review editor Roydon Serekho about the latest Apple iPads and iPad Pros, as well as Jamshed’s thoughts on the iPhone 14 Pro.
While Apple held a launch event called “Far Out” last month that featured the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro series, launch events for the iPad Pro (2022), iPad (2022), and 2022 versions. did not have. Apple TV 4K. Ahil asks why Apple didn’t release these devices last month and Jamshed replies that it could be due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and more companies have realized that they can create more creative presentations.
It was immediately obvious to people attending the event that there would not be another event in October to launch Apple’s new iPad models, as Apple had already launched the iPhone 14 lineup along with the Apple Watch series. 8, the new Apple Watch Ultra and AirPods Pro 2. These are the products you need to experience in practice, he explains.
iPhone 14 Pro review: islands on the screen
Roydon says the new 10th generation iPad model was supposed to replace the previous generation iPad with an older design, but Apple decided to keep the iPad (2021). It makes sense, he says, since there was a huge price difference between the 9th generation iPad and iPad Air (2022).
While Jamshed points out that the company has increased the price of the 9th generation iPad, which now costs Rs. At $3,000 more than its previous price, Roydon says the newly released iPad offers a modern design and a moderate amount of power. Akil agrees, saying he’s still waiting for the 12.9-inch iPad model, which doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of the iPad Pro models.
The iPad (2022) has one notable improvement: Apple has added a USB Type-C port to the tablet. However, if you’re upgrading from an older iPad and want to use the first generation Apple Pencil, you’ll need a Lightning to USB Type-C conversion cable.
Jamshed also points out that the keyboard comes with a full-featured row, and Akhil points out that the iPad models come with a landscape-oriented camera. This may be part of Apple’s push to promote the iPad as a productivity device that could come in handy for remote learning.
iPad Pro with Apple M2 SoC, mini LED display and 5G connectivity launched in India
Roydon says it might make sense for Apple to release an “SE model” of the iPad mini, which used to be a very affordable device. Jamshed says he remembers the first-generation iPad mini selling for around Rs. 15,000 in India, years after the second generation iPad mini went on sale in India. iPads starting at Rs. from 19,000 to rupees. 23,000 would sell very well, he said, but Apple doesn’t seem interested.
This year, Apple also introduced a new Apple TV 4K model based on the A15 Bionic SoC. This is a powerful 2021 chipset that is also used in the latest Apple iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus smartphones. The Apple TV 4K (2022) is also available for Rs. 14,900, which is much lower than the outgoing model, priced at Rs. 18,900 when it was launched in India.
We’ve also heard rumors that Apple is working on an extremely affordable dongle-style streaming device that could rival Google’s Chromecast models and Amazon’s Fire TV Stick devices. But as Jamshed points out, Apple then has to decide how low the price can be. There is a cut-off point below which the experience doesn’t meet Apple’s standards for its brand, he adds.
Jamshed recently reviewed the iPhone 14 Pro and the review is now available on Gadgets 360. The biggest change to Apple’s flagship model this year is a new camera system on the smartphone with a 48MP primary sensor and a new Dynamic Island design. “tablet and hole punch cutout” on the display.
Is Dynamic Island what Apple advertises it to be? Jamshed says it seems like a total distraction at the moment. Whether he was playing, scrolling through news feeds, or sorting through email, the animated waveform was always present, which annoyed him greatly, he said. However, it disappears in full-screen apps, he says.

For users who really care about photos and videos, the iPhone 14 Pro might be the best choice. For many people who spend that much money, the price difference between storage configurations can be beneficial. On the other hand, the transition from iPhone 13 to iPhone 14 may be the most frustrating generation-to-generation upgrade, Jamshed adds.
