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.

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 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.

Apple iPad 8th generation review (hands on)


The new iPad 8th generation delivers better performance for the same affordable price along with useful iPadOS upgrades.

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 8th generation looks like a very strong value and one of the best tablets for the money.

iPad 8 (10.2-inch, 2020) Review | Trusted Reviews


iPad 8 (2020) 1.2-inch review: Apple's cheapest iPad is also its most popular, and with the iPad 8 it's not hard to see why.

Nice speed improvements;Still feels great to use;Supports Pencil and Keyboard

32GB storage is stingy;Design could do with a refresh;Screen is very reflective

Apple iPad 8th generation (2020) review


iPad gets an A12 chip – and dozen that change everything?

The A12 is a powerhouse at this price-point ; The screen is big and bright ; App ambition Android can only dream of ; Strong accessories ecosystem

Reflective screen and no True Tone ; Entry level 32GB storage is miserly ; Dated bezel-heavy design ; Speaker positioning remains irksome

There’s only one major change over last year’s iPad, but it’s one that really matters: the A12 ensures this iPad will last.
