Notably, Apple claims the iPad is made using 100 percent recycled aluminum, according to a report by 91mobiles. The new iPad has ditched the traditional Lightning port in favor of the USB-C port.

However, Zack points out that Apple is only supporting 1st-gen Lighting connector Apple Pencil on a USB Type-C iPad. So, iPad users will have to shell out more money to buy a USB-C dongle.
