Apple reveals new iPad line-up (and we’re really confused)

Rumours of a new iPad line-up have been rife this last week, and so it came as no surprise to see Apple reveal two new tablets to it's iPad line-up. The understated nature of the announcement was very unlike Apple, however, with the products simply arriving on the tech giant's website. And the arrival of a brand new device, the iPad 2022, makes it all the more mysterious. 

But now that we know what the new products are, we've got questions, particularly about this new 10th gen iPad. It's bigger and more colourful than the standard iPad we know, and seems to be an additional device to the iPad range, rather than a replacement for the 10.2-inch tablet. From what we understand, Apple has no plans to discontinue the 9th gen iPad any time soon', so who is the new iPad 2022 for? And what can it do that its older sibling can't? Below we'll delve a bit deeper into both devices.
