Upgrading from the iPad (5th gen) to the iPad (7th gen) is a great upgrade path if you are looking for an iPad with better keyboard support or an iPad that supports the Apple Pencil. The iPad (7th gen) supports the first-generation Apple Pencil and the Apple Smart Keyboard. In comparison, the iPad (5th gen) does not support the Apple Pencil and only supports Bluetooth keyboards. Other highlights of the iPad (7th gen) include a larger 10.2” Retina display, the Apple A10 Fusion chip, up to 128GB of internal storage space, a Lightning connector for charging, and a home button with Touch ID for security.
