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 10.2-inch (2019) review: iPadOS makes this a winner

 

There are two changes of note in the latest Apple iPad: a bigger screen and a Smart Connector, so you can connect it to Apple's Smart Keyboard. These changes aren't what make it retain its status as the de facto tablet most people should buy,...

Good performance iPadOS greatly improves productivity Solid battery life Large screen 100% recycled aluminum enclosure

Same design, same 32GB base storage Smart Keyboard is expensive

Yes. If you’re in the market for a new tablet and don’t want to spend too much, buy the iPad.

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.

iPad 10.2-inch review: The case for the least expensive iPad

 

Apple's iPad strategy for 2019 was weird, with no new iPad Pro, but updates to the iPad Mini and iPad Air. The 10.2-inch iPad, however, might be the best bet. It has an older A10 processor, original Pencil support and a smart connector for smart...

The 10.2-inch iPad has a larger display than before. Smart Connector supports a few snap-on keyboard accessories. One of the most affordable devices in Apple's gadget lineup. iPad OS works better than expected and is well-optimized for the A10...

The base 32GB of storage isn't enough, meaning you'll really be paying $429 for the 128GB model. It's bigger and heavier than older model. The older A10 processor is the same as the previous iPad's, which you can still get on sale.

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

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

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 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
