In April 2021, Apple updated the 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro, following the introduction of an updated entry-level 10.2-inch iPad and a completely redesigned 10.9-inch iPad Air toward the end of last year. The updated ‌iPad‌ models join the rest of Apple's tablet family, which also includes the 7.9-inch iPad mini.

Which iPad Is Right for You?

If price is your biggest consideration, you'll want to look at the basic 10.2-inch ‌iPad‌, knowing that it has contains some older technologies, even though it recently received an update to Apple's A12 Bionic chip for better performance. If you're looking for portability, check out the ‌iPad mini‌, and if you want a mid-sized ‌iPad‌ with more to offer than the entry-level ‌iPad‌, check out the ‌iPad Air‌.

What about the ‌iPad Pro‌? Apple's high-end iPads are in a class of their own, and it shows in their higher price. Unless you're a pro-level user or price is no object, you'll probably want to look to cheaper options, but the ‌iPad Pro‌ models deliver cutting-edge technology for those who need it.

With that quick overview out of the way, let's take a look at what each model has to offer.

iPad Models

10.2-inch iPad

Starting at the low end of the ‌iPad‌ price spectrum, Apple has the basic 10.2-inch ‌iPad‌ starting at $329 for the Wi-Fi only model. This ‌iPad‌ is perfect if you're on a budget as it is also frequently on sale, and is popular in the education field.

It has the most important features users are looking for in an ‌iPad‌, like a generous display that's a half-inch larger than previous models, Touch ID, and a decent rear camera, as well as support for the first-generation Apple Pencil if you're into drawing, handwritten notes, and other tasks that don't work quite as well with your finger.

That low-end price tag does mean there are a few sacrifices, however, as the front FaceTime camera is relatively low resolution compared to other iPads and the display is a definite step down as it lacks rich wide color support, True Tone technology that automatically adjusts overall tone based on ambient light, and an antireflective coating that helps minimize glare on other models. The display also isn't laminated to the cover glass, so you'll notice a bit of an air gap rather than feeling like you're directly touching the screen.

Key specifications include:

  • A 10.2‑inch Retina display
  • Home button with ‌Touch ID‌
  • A12 Bionic chip
  • 8MP back camera with HDR and 1080p HD video
  • 1.2MP ‌FaceTime‌ HD front camera with HDR
  • Two speaker audio
  • First-generation ‌Apple Pencil‌ compatibility
  • Smart Keyboard and Bluetooth keyboard compatibility
  • Lightning port
  • Available in silver, space gray, and gold

iPad mini

Next up is the ‌iPad mini‌, which starts at $399 for Wi-Fi only models. Apple's March 2019 refresh of this smaller-sized tablet improved its internals and introduced support for the first-generation ‌Apple Pencil‌, making it a capable mid-range tablet with ultra portability.

With a display size of 7.9 inches, you can't quite call it pocketable, but the ‌iPad mini‌ is definitely great for having something small on the go that still offers a much larger screen size than even Apple's largest iPhones.

appleipadminis
Looking beyond the display size, this is a very capable device using the same A12 Bionic chip from the iPhone XS, so it's a speedy tablet. You'll get an improved display compared to the entry-level ‌iPad‌, a much better front ‌FaceTime‌ camera, and support for the first-generation ‌Apple Pencil‌.

Key specifications include:

  • Fully laminated 7.9‑inch Retina display with True Tone
  • ‌Touch ID‌
  • A12 Bionic chip with Neural Engine
  • 8MP back camera with HDR and 1080p HD video
  • 7MP ‌FaceTime‌ HD front camera with Auto HDR
  • First-generation ‌Apple Pencil‌ compatibility
  • Bluetooth keyboard compatibility
  • Lightning port
  • Available in silver, space gray, and gold

iPad Air

In the middle of the ‌iPad‌ family sits the new 10.9-inch ‌iPad Air‌, which starts at $599 for Wi-Fi only models. With its redesign, Apple's new ‌iPad Air‌ is the perfect mid-tier option that offers many of the same features as the top-of-the-line ‌iPad Pro‌ but at a lower price point.

Key specifications of the 10.9-inch ‌iPad Air‌ include:

  • Fully laminated 10.9‑inch Liquid Retina display with True Tone
  • ‌Touch ID‌ in the power button
  • A14 Bionic chip with Neural Engine
  • 12MP rear camera with HDR and 4K video at up to 60 fps
  • 7MP ‌FaceTime‌ HD front camera with Smart HDR
  • Landscape two-speaker audio
  • Second-generation ‌Apple Pencil‌ compatibility
  • Magic Keyboard, ‌Smart Keyboard‌ Folio and Bluetooth keyboards compatibility
  • USB-C connector instead of Lightning
  • Available in silver, space gray, rose gold, green, and sky blue

iPad Pro

If you're looking for true portable workstation power, then the last two iPads in the lineup, the iPad Pro models, could be what you're interested in. These tablets were updated in April 2021 with faster processors, 5G connectivity, a new display technology, and more.

These iPads, which start at $799 for the smaller 11-inch model and $1099 for the 12.9-inch model, are a step up from the ‌iPad Air‌ in almost every way, from 120Hz ProMotion technology for smoother display responsiveness, Thunderbolt, and mini-LED, to a more powerful M1 chip, dual rear cameras, and a LiDAR scanner for more immersive augmented reality experiences.

ipad pro 2021 isolated
The ‌iPad Pro‌ is overkill for most users, but if you're a pro-level user or just want the latest technology, the ‌iPad Pro‌ has a lot to offer.

Key specifications of the two ‌iPad Pro‌ models include:

  • 11‑inch and 12.9-inch Liquid Retina displays with ProMotion technology and True Tone
  • Liquid Retina XDR mini-LED display on the 12.9-inch model for HDR and Dolby Vision.
  • Face ID
  • ‌M1‌ chip
  • Two rear cameras: 12MP wide and 10MP ultra wide
  • Smart HDR for photos, 4K video at 30 fps or 60 fps
  • 12MP TrueDepth front camera with Center Stage, Portrait mode, Portrait Lighting, and Smart HDR
  • Four-speaker audio
  • 5G connectivity
  • Second-generation ‌Apple Pencil‌ compatibility
  • Magic Keyboard, ‌Smart Keyboard‌ Folio and Bluetooth keyboard compatibility
  • Thunderbolt / USB 4 connector
  • Available in silver and space gray

Customization Options

Now that we've looked at the base specs of each of ‌iPad‌ models, it's time to think about various options like storage, cellular connectivity, and AppleCare+.

Storage: There are several storage options for each ‌iPad‌, so think about how much you might need. On the low end, the 9.7-inch ‌iPad‌ is available in two sizes: 32GB ($329) and 128GB ($100 upgrade at $429).

For the ‌iPad mini‌ and ‌iPad Air‌, Apple is offering two storage options: 64GB ($399 for mini and $599 for Air) and 256GB (a $150 upgrade on the previous prices).

satechipadprohub4
Lastly, the ‌iPad Pro‌ has the most storage capacity options. You can choose from the base 128GB option ($799 for 11-inch and $1099 for 12.9-inch), or 256GB ($100 upgrade from base), 512GB ($300 upgrade from base), 1TB ($700 upgrade from base), and 2TB ($1,100 upgrade from base).

Power-heavy users should always look to the higher-capacity ‌iPad‌ models to ensure they don't have to worry about constantly deleting apps and other files for storage space. Otherwise, Apple's iCloud is a great way to offload files and lets you opt for a cheaper ‌iPad‌ with less storage.

Unless you're storing a large local music library, downloading lots of video for offline playback, have a ton of huge apps, or doing pro-level work requiring lots of large files, mainstream users can usually get away with the lowest-tier storage options.

Cellular Connectivity: If you need to ensure that you can use your ‌iPad‌ at any time, including when you're not near a Wi-Fi connection, you can opt for a Wi-Fi + Cellular option to ensure you're always connected.

Cellular support adds $130–$150 onto the price of all corresponding Wi-Fi ‌iPad‌ models, depending on which ‌iPad‌ and which storage capacity. You'll also have to sign up for a data plan for an additional cost with a supported carrier, like AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, or Verizon in the United States.

All told, it's not a cheap upgrade, and many users prefer using their phone as a hotspot to deliver connectivity to a Wi-Fi ‌iPad‌ while on the go. But if you're phone plan doesn't allow for hotspot usage or you just want the convenience of having your ‌iPad‌ connected directly to a cellular network at all times, the option is there.

Something else worth considering is that the ‌iPad Pro‌ is the only model to support 5G, which is significantly faster than 4G LTE on all of the other ‌iPad‌ models.

AppleCare+: New iPads come with one year of hardware repair coverage through Apple's limited warranty policy, as well as up to 90 days of complimentary support. But if you want more coverage, Apple offers optional ‌AppleCare‌+ packages priced at $69 for the 10.2-inch iPad, iPad mini, and iPad Air or $129 for the iPad Pro.

‌AppleCare‌+ extends your ‌iPad‌'s coverage to two years from the purchase date and adds up to two incidents of accidental damage coverage, subject to a service fee of $49 plus applicable taxes in the United States. Prices vary elsewhere.

ipadproapplecareprice
‌iPad‌ ‌AppleCare‌+ plans also cover accidental damage to the ‌Apple Pencil‌ for up to two years with a $29 fee plus tax per incident. ‌AppleCare‌+ provides 24/7 priority access to support advisors via online chat or phone for up to two years after the ‌iPad‌'s original purchase date.

Apple charges high fees for accidental damage to a new ‌iPad‌ without ‌AppleCare‌+, so as with most forms of insurance, the plan can pay for itself if ever used. ‌AppleCare‌+ must be added within 60 days of purchasing a device.

Accessories

Each ‌iPad‌ has a plethora of accessories to choose from for protection, style, or usability, many of which Apple creates and sells itself on Apple.com and in Apple retail stores.

Apple Pencil: The ‌Apple Pencil‌ is a stylus most popular with artists but also used by others, providing a comfortable and streamlined way to interact with the tablet. The second-generation ‌Apple Pencil‌ introduced sleek design changes, magnetic charging on the ‌iPad Air‌ and ‌iPad Pro‌, and gesture controls, none of which are available on the original ‌Apple Pencil‌.

ipadproapplepencil
It might be unclear which iPads support which ‌Apple Pencil‌ models, so check out our list below. In short, the ‌iPad Pro‌ and latest ‌iPad Air‌ use the second-generation ‌Apple Pencil‌ while cheaper ‌iPad‌ models work with the first-generation ‌Apple Pencil‌.

  • First-Generation Apple Pencil ($100): 10.2-inch ‌iPad‌ (2019), 10.2-inch ‌iPad‌ (2020), fifth-generation ‌iPad mini‌ (2019), third-generation ‌iPad Air‌ (2019)
  • Second-Generation Apple Pencil ($130): fourth-generation ‌iPad Air‌ (2020), 11-inch and 12.9-inch ‌iPad Pro‌ (2018, 2020, and 2021)

In the end, if you're only looking to purchase an ‌iPad‌ as a convenient app-browsing, email-checking, or ‌FaceTime‌ device, you don't need an ‌Apple Pencil‌. But if you're an artist or other creative with a penchant for drawing or taking digital handwritten notes, Apple's stylus is definitely an enhancement to the ‌iPad‌ experience.

For a more in-depth look at the differences between the two Apple Pencils, check out our comparison.

Cases: Apple sells Smart Cover and Smart Folio cases for all of its iPads, priced depending on the size of the device. You'll pay $39.00 for an ‌iPad mini‌ Smart Cover, $49.00 for an ‌iPad Air‌ or 10.2-inch ‌iPad‌ Smart Cover, $79.00 for an 11-inch ‌iPad Pro‌ Smart Folio, and $99.00 for a 12.9-inch ‌iPad Pro‌ Smart Folio.

ipad mini smart covers new
These cases magnetically attach to your ‌iPad‌, offering a degree of protection while also allowing you to place the tablet in numerous angled positions. The difference between the two is that the ‌iPad Pro‌'s Smart Folio cases protect the rear of the tablet as well as the front, while the Smart Cover cases only protect the front.

Keyboards: If you're looking to do a lot of work on an ‌iPad Air‌ or ‌iPad Pro‌, Apple has introduced a Magic Keyboard that includes a trackpad, USB-C port with passthrough charging, and backlit keys. It's certainly not cheap, priced at $299 for the 11-inch version and $349 for the 12.9-inch version, but for pro-level users, it's a serious upgrade to the ‌iPad‌ experience.

ipadpromagickeyboard
For those who still want a keyboard for their ‌iPad Pro‌ but don't want to spend quite as much money, Apple also sells the Smart Keyboard Folio at $179.00 for the 11-inch model and $199.00 for the 12.9-inch model. This case is just like the Smart Folio, with an added Bluetooth keyboard for enhanced productivity. A similar accessory is available for the 10.5-inch ‌iPad Air‌ and 10.2-inch ‌iPad‌.

ipadprosmartkeyboard
These Apple-made cases are compatible with iPads that have a ‌Smart Keyboard‌ connector, which is a special port that magnetically attaches the keyboard to the side of the ‌iPad‌.

Otherwise, you can also look into popular ‌iPad‌ keyboard manufacturers like Brydge, Logitech, and Belkin, all of which sell Bluetooth keyboards that connect to iPads wirelessly. Keyboard cases are more expensive than your average case due to the added input use, but if you really plan on doing a lot of work and writing on your ‌iPad‌, the two-in-one keyboard/protection combo is the way to go. The hardware keyboards give a much better typing experience and free up screen space on your ‌iPad‌ by getting rid of the software keyboard.

Cables: Apple's ‌iPad‌ lineup now has differing cable standards, making matters a bit confusing. The easy way to remember is that if you're purchasing anything that's not an ‌iPad Pro‌ or ‌iPad Air‌, you'll be charging the ‌iPad‌ with a regular Apple Lightning cable.

ipad cables guide
If you're going with an ‌iPad Pro‌ or ‌iPad Air‌, then you'll be using USB-C cables. All iPads come with their required cables in the box, but if you don't have many around the house it's always a good idea to stock up on more. Apple sells individual cables, but you can always shop around on Amazon for cheap and reliable brands like Anker, Aukey, and RAVPower.

So... Which iPad Should You Buy?

Overall, Apple's 10.9-inch iPad Air is a perfect all-encompassing tablet that should hit the checkmarks for many buyers. It has most of the features of the ‌iPad Pro‌ but starts at $200 less.

If you're someone who has preferred the 7.9-inch form factor of the iPad mini over the years, Apple's latest small-sized tablet is well worth the update and has nearly all of the features of the new ‌iPad Air‌. The ‌iPad mini‌ doesn't have a ‌Smart Keyboard‌ connector like the ‌iPad Air‌ or a ‌Smart Keyboard‌ case of its own, but since the ‌iPad mini‌ isn't exactly a workstation device, that's not a bad trade-off (plus, you can still connect it to a Bluetooth keyboard if you want).

For $200 less than the ‌iPad Air‌ at $399 (64GB Wi-Fi), you'll still have a nice laminated display with True Tone and antireflective coating, ‌Touch ID‌, the speedy A12 Bionic chip, first-generation ‌Apple Pencil‌ support, and the same cameras.

ipads spring 2020
If you're shopping around for a cheap tablet for a kid, definitely consider Apple's 10.2-inch iPad, which sees discounts below its $329 price tag pretty often. Sale prices in the $230–$250 range should not be unheard of once it's been out for a bit, and pairing the ‌iPad‌ with a super-rugged child-proof case is a perfect birthday or holiday present. Frugal shoppers should also check out Apple's refurbished store to shop around for older-model iPads offered at discount.

And, of course, on the other end are the power users. If you're willing to spend the money to spec-out a 12.9-inch iPad Pro, you'll get a super reliable mobile workstation with 10-hour battery life in a 1.4 lb package. If you travel frequently for work, or just like setting up at a coffee shop during the day, the ‌iPad Pro‌ has a chance to become your MacBook replacement with a paired keyboard.

The most recent additions to Apple's ‌iPad‌ lineup provide a wide variety of options and offer clear distinctions between tablets that should help make your decision a little easier.

The list of differences between the Air 3 and 2017 Pro 10.5", which in my opinion are so significant that I'm leaning towards the latter when I replace my Air later this year, are as follows:
* The Air 3's CPU (A12) is 20% faster than that of the Pro 10.5" (A10X) as per Geekbench 4 scores
* The Pro 10.5" has 1GB more RAM which may mean that Apple might give it some features it doesn't the Air 3 in future versions of iOS
* The Pro 10.5" has a 120Hz ProMotion display while the Air 3 has a 60Hz display. This, in my opinion, is a major feature as it makes the overall experience much smoother
* The Pro 10.5" has quad speakers as opposed to stereo ones on the Air 3
* The Pro 10.5" has a 12MP camera w/ flash; the Air 3 has an 8MP one
Air also has a flush camera (no bump), which for me is a bigger deal than most of the other things you mentioned.

The 2017 iPad Pro 10.5" should've also been mentioned as it's more premium with features such as a 120Hz and Quad Speakers, has very similar performance, and costs around the same (or less if refurb) as the iPad Air 3

I'm firmly in the camp of "this is the best range of iPads ever." There were many messy years, but finally the dust has settled and it starts to make sense. Hopefully Apple doesn't mess it up in the ensuing years.

Now time for Apple to fix the Macbook lineup....

I’ve never owned a cellular iPad so I’m ignorant of how it works. Does the mini 5 have an a la cart option for data?

I don’t need a constant LTE connection but I will have times when I’ll need it.
I think it depends on how you buy it, direct from a carrier or a carrier through Best Buy, or direct from somewhere like Apple. Used to be, you could just turn it on for a month at a time. Don’t know if that’s true anymore.

Anyway, the point I’m trying to make is that I’ve switched to getting WiFi-only iPads and tethering (damned auto-correct!) to my iPhone, which works perfect and saves me in the cost of the iPad itself and the data plan. But, apparently, according to this article, it depends on if your phone carrier allows this, I guess. AT&T does and it works with both my MBA & iPad great.

The iPad line is now looking pretty good. Something for (nearly) everybody. But I expect that the 2018 iPad will not see an update and may even be discontinued by this time next year.


Either go big (12.9" Pro w/ LTE and 256GB) or go home (home button-equipped iPad Air)

Ah okay. I didn’t really think of the Air 3 and 2017 Pro 10.5” as comparable but in terms of just price for features, that does make sense.
I'd be curious what the longevity differences are between the 2. The Air 3 seems to be faster in most (all?) ways, but also has a little less ram. Might be a toss up.
