Views:  Date:4/20/2019 6:44:27 PM

There may not be as much choice as smartphones when it comes to tablets, but there are still a number of decisions to be made. If you are reading this, it is likely you have already decided on the iOS platform, and you are now trying to figure out what size iPad is the right one for you and which one fits into how much you want to spend.

Apple offers a number of iPad options ranging from 7.9-inch displays to 12.9-inches in size. There are also a few older models, which although discontinued by Apple, are still available elsewhere, sometimes at good prices.

We have therefore included a couple of them in this round up so you can see the differences between all models available, old and new, to find the most suitable iPad for you.

Quick summary

iPad Air is one of the newest iPads available. It opts for Touch ID over Face ID, but it's cheaper than the Pro models, more powerful than the iPad 9.7 and it is compatible with the first generation Apple Pencil.

iPad mini 5 is the second of the newest iPads. It has the same design as the iPad mini 4 but it offers a number of upgrades when it comes to hardware, including processor and front camera. 

iPad Pro 11 is one of the most powerful iPads available. It comes with a refreshed design offering super slim bezels, Face ID and excellent specs. It offers support for the second-gen Apple Pencil and it offers all the latest features in a more compact format than the 12.9 model.

iPad Pro 12.9 (2018) is the most expensive iPad available, as well as the most powerful alongside the 11-inch model. It is for those that want to treat their tablet more like a computer. It offers the same hardware as the 11-inch model but in a larger size and with a higher price tag.

iPad Pro 10.5 has an older design than the iPad Pro 11, with Touch ID still intact like the iPad Air. It's cheaper than the latest Pro models, more powerful than the iPad 9.7 and it is compatible with the first generation Apple Pencil.

iPad Pro 9.7 is worth buying if you can find it a lot cheaper than its successor - the iPad Pro 10.5. It supports the first generation Apple Pencil.

iPad Pro 12.9 (2017) has been replaced by a newer design but it will be cheaper than the new model if you can find it. It's a powerful device with support for the first-generation Apple Pencil and Touch ID.

iPad 9.7 offers much the same design as the old iPad 9.7 but with slightly updated specs and support for Apple Pencil. It is significantly cheaper than the iPad Pro models, as well as cheaper than the iPad Air.

iPad mini 4 offers a small Apple tablet that's cheaper than the iPad mini 5 if you're happy to sacrifice the latest specs and features.
