Best Ipad 2021
Apple's iPad lineup is absolutely amazing this year, and no other manufacture has been able to compete. From the tiny but powerful iPad Mini, iPad to the iPad Air or iPad Pro, they are powerful and battery efficient, stunning displays, and one of the largest app selections available.
The Ipad is no longer the large iPhone; with the iPadOS, there have been many developments that further differentiate the two. The iPad is aligning more with the Mac every day. iPads support mouses, trackpads, and a powerful OS that handle many tasks.
iPad 10.2in (2020)
The base model iPad is arguably the best value out of the group. You get all of the same features as the more expensive Pro and Air models, including a larger 10.2-inch display. This is the cheapest iPad you can buy.
The 2020 model retains the same design as the previous model but has improved every other way, with a faster A12 processor. This processor's arrival means that the iPad now has the Neural Engine like all the other iPads. The slim, lightweight iPad 10.2 inch has a good screen size for both entertainment and productivity.
The new iPad 10.2 inch has the same price as the previous model at $329 for the Wi-Fi model and $459 for the Wi-Fi + Cellular model. The biggest drawbacks would be the front-facing camera, the large bezels, and the storage size.
iPad Mini (2020)
The smaller and more manageable iPad Mini fits the bill for those looking for something slim and mini. The A12 Bionic processor powers the iPad mini; the 7.9-inch tablet comes with all the same bells and whistles as the rest of Apple's tablet line, thanks to a fairly recent update.
It's very similar to the 10.2-inch iPad but has beefed-up storage and a smaller 7.9-inch screen but is a higher quality screen. These features make it a good choice for anyone who wants a smaller tablet. You have the option of 64GB ($399) or 256GB ($549)of storage.
IPAD AIR (2020)
The new iPad Air has a modern design with a large screen starting at only $599. The iPad Air is powered by the A14 Bionic, Apple's most powerful chip yet. The iPad Air is perfect for a general use tablet for entertainment and productivity.
The iPad air has gotten a complete facelift with an almost borderless screen. It also took on the bezels of that of iPad pro with the flat edges.
The iPad air has done something no other. iPad had done, and that it kept the touch ID. The iPad Air has a fingerprint scanner embedded into the top button, complete with a helpful on-screen reminder that points you towards it if you forget.
This proves out to be extremely useful in the times of the Virus. No longer pulling your mask down or having to put in your passcode, use your fingerprint!
The Air has Apple's fastest chip, and it's quite apparent when you start using multiple apps at once. The iPad Air opens apps in a snap of a finger, and transitions from app to app are smooth.
When looking at the difference between The Air and Pro, it comes down to the LiDAR sensor that is only in the Pros. Suppose you're not into augmented reality, then it's not that big of a deal. If you're looking for an iPad for light productivity, you don't need to go all out with the iPad pro.
The standard storage with the iPad Air is only 64Gb, and it feels like that's not enough for me. If you like to store movies, photos, or documents, you'll want to get the larger 256 GB for $750 ($150 more) or store most of your documents in the cloud.
The iPad Air features a 7-megapixel front-facing camera compared to the standard iPad model's 1.2-megapixel selfie camera. In return, FaceTime calls made from the iPad Air looked leaps and bounds more detailed than those made on the regular iPad.
The iPad Air comes with a 12-megapixel wide camera that can shoot 4K video, while the regular iPad has a lower resolution 8-megapixel camera.
iPad Pro (2020)
The iPad Pro is an edge-to-edge Liquid Retina display with True Tone technology that makes the whole experience extremely immersive. The iPad Pro comes in either 11 or 12.9-inch screen sizes.
The 12.9-inch screen is excellent for digital artists for photo and video editing. The 11-inch model brings all the power, features, and functionality in a more compact form with more compact screen size.
Both iPad Pros have extremely high screen resolutions: 2,388-by-1,668 pixels (11-inch) and 2,732-by-2,048 pixels (12.9-inch).
The iPad Pro also features Promotion, extremely accurate colors, and the best displays in the sector, if not the best.
The iPad Pro not only shows off the amazing photos with its industrious screen, but it also takes them thanks to the highly calibrated, fast-performing wide and ultra-wide cameras.
The new 10MP ultra-wide camera and 12MP wide camera can take a wide array of high/low and even no light photos.
We have been using LiDAR for many years on the battlefield to determine the terrain and even down to how big a window is. Well, LiDAR is now incorporated into the iPad Pro, which allows for realistic Augmented Reality as we haven't seen before.
What's even more impressive is the speed of the A12Z Bionic processor. We no longer need to wait to edit our videos to the 4k standard with a MacBook Pro or iMac.
