The long wait is over. Yesterday, Apple presented the new highlights among the iPad series. The iPad (8th Gen) is available in three different colours. Here you can find all the models and options. The official sales launch is on 18.09.2020. We’ll have more information for you about the new iPad Air in October.

After Apple’s launch of the new iPad Pro this year, it was high time for a makeover of the bestseller: the iPad (7th Gen). If you're looking for a handy iPad that's fast, stylish and good value for money, look no further. With a stronger chipset and a battery life of up to 10 hours, the new iPad is also great for watching movies or playing games on the go. You can find out what has changed below.

iPadOS 14

In June of this year, the software received quite a massive update. The motto was to make the iPad even easier and faster to use. Did you know that you can convert all your notes written with the Apple Pencil directly into typed text? I really wish that had been an option back when I was a student. The widgets on the Home Screen have been optimised to give you even more information at a glance. If you’re missing something, you can simply add it to your Home Screen. From chat optimisations to map revisions, iOS 14 has it all.

Out with the old and in with the new: trade-in or resell your old iPad

When choosing what to do with your old iPad, you have two options. If you originally purchased your device through Digitec Galaxus, you can use our resale platform to sell it. Just go to your user profile and click on «Sell products». In a few simple steps, you can put your tablet up for purchase by other users. For more detailed information, click here.

If you'd like to sell your device via a recommerce company, verkaufen.ch (website in German) is an option. Select your device and add details about its condition. Once you’re done, you'll see a buyback offer. Shipping your device to verkaufen.ch is free. It's worth checking out – experience has shown that secondhand Apple products still tend to be worth quite a bit.
