The 6th gen iPad and the 9th gen iPad were released three years apart, and as such, you’ll notice several key improvements if you upgrade to a 9th gen model. The display size increases from 9.7” to 10.2”, and the display technology also goes from Retina to Retina with True Tone. The max storage capacity doubles from 128GB to 256GB, and the processor goes from an Apple A10 Fusion chip to an A13 Bionic chip with Neural Engine. The front-facing camera is also improved between these two models. The 6th gen iPad has a 1.2MP camera on the front, and the 9th gen iPad has a 12MP camera on the front with support for Center Stage, which improves FaceTime video calls.
