Whether you’re a long time devotee of Apple or you are simply ready to jump aboard the bandwagon it can be a little daunting to decide which of the iPads now available you should choose. Your choices are the standard 9.7 inch iPad, the 10.5 inch iPad Pro or the 12.9inch iPad Pro.
In terms of appearance, there is very little difference between the three options they all have the same classic iPad styling. The only differences being that the iPad is slightly thicker than the pro and the pro has an extra gold colour option, in case you want to stand out from the crowd. The iPad also feels heavier in your hand for its size.
In terms of specs the pro is far superior to the standard iPad;It is faster making for a smoothie user experience; It has more storage to allow you to collect all those must-have apps; and the cameras are far and away superior to the standard iPad which means all those selfies you want to take will come out just right. The display screen on the pro comes with more features than the iPad which makes the screen clearer and more resistant to wear. The pro has the added benefit of being compatible with accessories such as the Apple pen and smart keyboard with the standard iPad you will have to just make do with the touchscreen interface. The iPad comes with a 2 speaker system whereas the pro has double the bang with a 4 speaker system.
Both devices have fingerprint recognition as security access on the home button and they also have the capacity to have SIM cards installed. The battery life is also the same on both said about 10 hours of surfing the internet on Wi-Fi or nine hours if you’re using mobile data.
The basic iPad will do everything you want it to it’s a good all-purpose tablet and it’s not bad value at £340. If this is your first tablet I would absolutely recommend the iPad if your tablet is likely to be your secondary device the iPad is a good choice. If you are looking for a tablet to be your main device then the improved features of the pro probably make it the better choice. The 10.5 inch Pro starts at around £620 which might make it a little pricey for some. If you’re willing to pay a little extra then for £770 you get for 12.9 inch Pro. With the biggest screen size, the 12.9 inch Pro is much more versatile as a primary device than the 10.5 making it a better value in a smaller size.
So in summary, the iPad is probably good for whatever you want to do with it, if you want a small tablet the 10.5 inch iPad Pro it’s a little pricey but it’s packed with features and if you’re looking for a tablet to be your main device then the 12.9 inch iPad Pro has all the features you could ask for.
