But the new iPad chipset isn’t powerful as A9X on the iPad Pro or A10 in the new iPhone 7. There is a nice 20% jump in terms of performance benchmarks compared to iPad Air 2. There shouldn’t be any performance issue unless you juggle heavy-duty activities such as Excel Spreadsheets, or editing and exporting a video.
