Apple iPad (2018) review

 

The ‘iPad for everyone' is now even more of a crowd-pleaser...

Powerful enough to handle most tasks ; Has way more apps than other tablets ; Pencil support gives it new versatility

Still no anti-reflective screen coating ; Small gap between screen and glass ; No multi-user support

The best iPad for most people – if you want a versatile tablet for work and play, this is it

9.7-inch iPad 2018

 

The iPad 2018 packs the much of the goodness of the Pro at half the price. It also works as a low cost laptop, if you but a keyboard case.

Great value ; Slim and light, yet powerful ; Apple Pencil compatible ; iOS is the best tablet operating system

Reflective screen ; Average rear camera

The new iPad is an iPad Pro on a budget. You get many of the same features for a fraction of the price, and that makes it hugely compelling.

Apple iPad review (2018): A little better, a little less competition

 

Once again, Apple has squeezed a bunch of components from past iOS devices -- the processor from the iPhone 7, the Pencil-friendly touch sensor from the first iPad Pro -- into a familiar body. While that might not sound terribly exciting, it all comes...

Great performance for the price ; Apple Pencil support ; Lots of excellent tablet apps

Classic design is getting old ; Still thicker than other iPads ; May be pricey for schools

Apple iPad (2018) hands-on preview

 

Apple's new iPad is more powerful and brings Pencil support, and a bevy of software initiatives and app improvements show emphasis on education.

Lots of education-focused initiatives ; Good hardware, slick software ; Affordable ; More control for teachers ; Support for Pencil

Design hasn’t changed

Apple iPad 2018 (32GB) review

 

New features are mostly aimed at creatives, but either way the iPad remains a prodigious AV tablet.

Excellent, balanced picture quality ; Added HDR support ; Punchy, natural sound ; Cheaper than last year’s model

Sound and vision upgrades are slight ; HDR isn’t as transformative here as you might expect

It’s not worth upgrading from last year’s model, but the new iPad is still the best tablet available at this sort of price

The iPad for everyone

 

There isn't much new about Apple's newest entry-level iPad. But it's a better value than ever.

The 2018 entry-level iPad supports the Apple Pencil for art work and annotation, and adds a faster A10 processor. iOS continues to offer the best overall selection of free and paid apps on affordable tablets.

Lacks the bigger, better screen, quad speakers and Smart Connector found on pricier iPad Pros. The Pencil, case and keyboard add-ons will bring the price up to laptop level.

The 2018 entry-level iPad doesn't add much, but it makes an already excellent tablet a better buy than ever.

Apple iPad 9.7 (2018) review: the go-to iPad tablet gets a little bit better and a little bit cheaper

 

Apple’s lower-priced tablet is almost the same as last year, but with a price cut, Pencil support and very solid battery life we’re not complaining

Great battery life ; Good screen ; Sufficiently powerful ; Great value

Weak speakers ; No TrueTone screen ; Camera isn't very strong

Apple iPad (2018)

 

The same price as last year's model but now with Apple Pencil support, the sixth-generation iPad is the best midrange tablet choice for most people. But it's still less practical than Chromebooks for most schools.

Terrific performance for the price. Elegant, high-quality apps. Supports Apple Pencil.

Neither rugged nor waterproof. Keyboard and Pencil accessories increase the price.

Who's buying this iPad? If you're a traditional tablet user looking to play games, watch or create videos, or draw, this iPad is a worthy upgrade over the previous model. It's a terrific family companion and more capable than any Android or Windows...

New iPad review: faster, longer lasting and with more storage. What's not to like?

 

Slightly thicker and heavier but the 5th gen iPad is improved in all the major areas

Cheapest 9.7-inch iPad ever ; Faster than before ; Giant battery life ; Starts at 32GB

Thicker and a little heavier ; No speaker improvement ; No expandability
