Moving from the iPad (5th gen) to the iPad (6th gen) means going from a model that was released in 2017 to a model that was released in 2018. You get a newer iPad, but the specs are largely the same between these two models. The key differences are the processor and support for the Apple Pencil. The iPad (5th gen) is powered by an Apple A9 chip and the iPad (6th gen) is powered by an Apple A10 Fusion chip. The iPad (6th gen) supports the first-generation Apple Pencil, whereas the iPad (5th gen) does not support the Apple Pencil. Otherwise, both models feature a 9.7” display, offer up to 128GB of storage, and are available in Silver, Space Gray, and Gold.
