Upgrading from an 8th generation iPad to a 9th generation iPad will result in getting an iPad that is one year newer and looks very similar. In fact, both models are the same size and weight, and each features a 10.2” display with a home button for device security. One key difference in the looks is the available colors. The 8th gen iPad is available in Silver, Space Gray, and Gold. The 9th gen iPad, also known as the iPad 2021, is not available in Gold. Otherwise, the Apple iPad 2021 brings some notable improvements such as True Tone on the display, up to 256GB of storage, Apple’s A13 Bionic chip, and a 12MP ultra-wide camera on the front with Center Stage. The 8th gen iPad offers up to 128GB of storage space, is powered by Apple’s A12 Bionic chip, and has a 1.2MP FaceTime HD camera on the front.
