Apple iPad (2020) and iPadOS 14 review

 

While earlier iPadOS releases laid the groundwork to make Apple's tablets more capable, iPadOS 14 is mostly concerned with design and polish. That's not a bad thing: Some redesigned apps are easier to use because they function more like their desktop...

It’s cheap! ; Improved performance ; Battery life is still great ; Includes a fast new charger

Base model only has 32GB of storage ; Front-facing camera isn’t great

Apple iPad (2020) review: The tablet you buy as an appliance

 

When people go online or walk into a store and say 'I would like to buy an iPad today,' this is what they get. And they will be extremely happy with it.

Exceptional software with long support ; Great battery life ; Colorful and clear display ; Connects to robust Apple ecosystem

32GB of base storage isn't enough ; Single tinny speaker ; Still Lightning, not USB-C

Apple iPad (2020) Review

 

Good alternative to Chromebook for students ; Fast ; Affordable ; Excellent app library

Lackluster front-facing camera ; Single-user OS ; Dated design

Apple's lowest-cost eighth-generation iPad doesn't reflect the state of the art in 2020, but it remains the best tablet in the $300 range for students and casual users.

The new 2020 iPad isn’t enough for Zoom school

 

It's still an amazing device, but the limitations are starting to get old.

128GB version is a good value ; Fast performance ; Huge library of apps

Base model only has 32GB of storage ; No multiuser support ; No USB-C

Apple has updated the base iPad with a new A12 Bionic processor, which makes it fast. Everything else about the iPad is still really good, but limitations like multiuser and poor videoconferencing hold it back.

Apple iPad 2020 Review

 

Another year, another budget iPad, and this new one is truly hard to argue against. It is the best tablet option for people on a budget, and among the best options for students. The 2020 iPad can easily handle any tasks – from writing essays and...

Excellent performance; Reliable software with good multitasking; Apple Pencil (1st gen) and Smart Keyboard support; All-day battery life

Outdated design; 32GB of base storage; Two speakers on the same side fail to deliver a stereo experience

Apple iPad (8th generation) review: Strong performance and battery life boost Apple's most affordable iPad Review | ZDNet

 

The new entry-level iPad delivers a big performance improvement over its predecessor while maintaining good battery life. It's affordable enough for home users but powerful enough for mainstream business users.

Much faster A12 Bionic processor ; Bright, sharp 10.2-inch screen ; All-day battery life ; Competitive price

32GB of storage on base model ; 720p FaceTime camera ; Still uses 802.11ac wi-fi and Bluetooth 4.2 ; No USB-C

iPad 2020 review

 

Despite its dated design, the new iPad 2020 is a great creative tool thanks to Apple Pencil support, plenty of power and decent battery life.

Excellent software ; Apple Pencil apps are great ; Impressive battery life

Expensive accessories ; Unoriginal design ; 32GB storage is paltry

Despite its dated design, the new iPad is a great creative tool thanks to Apple Pencil support, plenty of power and decent battery life. That said, it isn’t worth upgrading from last year’s model, and if you do pick one up, opt for the 128GB storage...

Apple iPad 10.2-inch 8th-gen review: A tablet for everyone

 

The new Apple iPad, now in its 8th generation, comes with a faster processor but the same design that we have seen on the basic iPad for years.

iPadOS ; Screen ; Fast

Same design ; Base storage

Apple iPad 2020 review

 

The 2020 Apple iPad isn't groundbreaking, but it's still a great bargain on a great tablet.

Fast processor ; Snazzy display ; Improved productivity

Aging design ; Base storage too low ; No multi-user support

If you’re in the market for an iPad simply because of the fact that you want a decent tablet for day-to-day use, this is the iPad to go for. If you want a productivity workhorse, it’s still worth considering the

Apple iPad 2020 review (10.2 inch)

 

The new iPad 2020 delivers swift performance, epic battery life and useful iPadOS upgrades for a great price.

I do wish Apple found a way to support the newer 2nd-gen Apple Pencil and to erase some of those bezels, but overall the iPad 2020 is a very strong value and one of the best tablets for the money.
