The ninth-generation entry-level ‌iPad‌ also remains in the lineup at $329, but today was followed up with the new 10th-generation model.

Honestly, It's too confusing and expensive. These iPads are using last year's design as well.

This reeks of the posters Apple used to have to help you make a computer buying choice right before Jobs came back. They need to go back to basics. All iPads should be the same equipment with the only difference being size. Done.
