The latest model of iPad features a 10.2-inch screen and support for Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard, though it still features the same A10 Fusion chip from the previous generation. This isn’t a bad thing, as it’s still perfectly capable of gaming, editing, and other intensive operations–though if you want more power that will last you longer, then the iPad Air is worth looking at.
The basic iPad is still great for games like Fortnite and Call of Duty Mobile, while also being a great way to stream movies and TV shows, read comics and books, and surf the web on the go. It also comes with either 32GB or 128GB of storage space, and you can pick between three different colours as well as whether it has cellular connectivity in addition to WiFi.
