Apple now offers four versions with radically varied forms and functions. Even if they use the same operating system and have many similar features, they still have several differences, such as the size of the screen, the processing speed, and the display technology.

 Let us get started

 APPLE IPAD AIR M1 (2022)

Most of the design cues from its predecessor are carried over into the iPad Air M1 2022. The flat slices and uniform lines make a particularly pleasant tablet to hold. By switching from the Bionic processor to the M1 chip, already found in the MacBook and iPad Pro, Apple raises the bar for performance even further. The iPad Air M1 also includes a 12-megapixel webcam that can track movements and optional 5G compatibility. The 10.9-inch LCD screen performs admirably with the elements still present but is regrettably still limited to 60 Hz.

 Key Specs

  •  Liquid Retina display.
  • 10.9-inch (diagonal) LEDbacklit MultiTouch display with IPS technology.
  • 2360-by-1640-pixel resolution at 264 pixels per inch (PPI)
  • Wide color display (P3)
  • True Tone display.
  • Fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating.
  • Fully laminated display.
  • Antireflective coating.

 APPLE IPAD 9 (2021)

 It is a low-cost tablet with several important secondary features removed. For instance, the screen is a little smaller, the design is a little less sophisticated, and the processor is getting older. Thus, the iPad 9 is the "essential" tablet that is perfect for someone looking for a specific device to use with iOS and utilizing it mainly to consume content, browse the web, and remain in touch with loved ones. In conclusion, we advise it to all grandmothers, grandfathers, or young and somewhat older teenagers.

 Key Specs

  •  Finish. Silver. Space Gray
  • Capacity 1 64GB. 256GB.
  • Buttons and Connectors. Smart. Connector 3.5 mm
  • In the Box. iPad. Lightning to USB-C Cable
  • Display. 10.2″ Retina display. Retina display
  • Chip. A13 Bionic chip
  • Camera. 8MP Wide camera
  • Video Recording. 1080p HD video recording at 25 fps and 30 fps.

 APPLE IPAD 10 (2022)

The updated iteration of the tablet's accessibility gives it its most significant advantage. The price of the iPad 10 in 2022 has increased somewhat significantly. However, the choice of substantial materials for the grip allows the device to offer several benefits. This enables you to regularly experience comfortable ergonomics, especially with the introduction of USB-C. The Apple A14 Bionic CPU is inside the iPad 10's performance pane configuration. There are two storage options for the tablet: 64 or 256 GB.

 Key Specs

  • Liquid Retina display.
  • 10.9-inch (diagonal) LED-backlit MultiTouch display with IPS technology.
  • 2360-by-1640-pixel resolution at 264 pixels per inch (PPI)
  • True Tone display.
  • 500 nits brightness.
  • Fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating.
  • Supports Apple Pencil (1st generation)

 APPLE IPAD PRO 12.9 M1

The iPad Pro 2020 had suffered dramatically in the past despite some positive aspects, mainly because of the two generations of processor delay. The fact that its replacement uses the same M1 chip as the MacBook Pro M1 shows that it does not share the same worries! Additionally, the M1 enables Thunderbolt 3 and USB 4.0 compatibility, which helps to solidify further its position as a tablet focused on productivity, primarily when used with the brand-new (and pricey) Magic Keyboard. The introduction of 5G is one of the major innovations. It has the added benefit of a "Smart Data Mode" that automatically switches to 4G when bandwidth requirements are low, conserving battery life. The actual autonomy is a bit longer than the promised ten hours.

 Key Specs

  • Display: 12.90-inch (2732x2048)
  • Processor: Apple M1.
  • Front Camera: 12MP.
  • RAM: 8GB.
  • OS: iPadOS 14.
  • Storage: 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, 1TB.
  • Rear Camera: 12MP.

 APPLE IPAD MINI 6 (2021)

 The Ipad mini was one of the final models in the lineup to still lack the new apple-style design from the brand, along with the "straightforward" Ipad. This has been accomplished with the 2021 generation, which has a larger screen with thinner corners and a squarer appearance. But this slimming remedy's accidental triumph is the jack plug. Also gone is the front button; the power button's upper edge now houses the Touch ID fingerprint sensor. Another modification is that the stylus is now magnetically attached to the right edge. The use of "notepad" is significantly more fascinating by this innovation and the tablet's diminutive size. The last significant change is a transition to USB-C, which is positive.

 Apple iPad Pro M2 (2022)

Compared to its predecessor, the iPad Pro M2 offers nothing new, but it is still one of the nicest touch pads on the market. In the most resource-intensive workloads, the M2 CPU delivers on its promises with a discernible power gain. We particularly value the inclusion of a 6E Wi-Fi chip, which offers the finest wireless performance on devices that support it, and a fantastic general technical sheet that further blurs the lines between a tablet and a PC.

 Key Specs

  • Released. Oct 26, 2022.
  • Display. 12.9 inches. 2732 x 2048 pixels. 120Hz Refresh rate.

 Apple iPad Air 5  (2022)

The device remains valid even after several iPadOS updates in a few years thanks to its new M1 processor, which offers disproportionate power for the general public without interfering with uses. The user experience is also made more comfortable by other minor upgrades, like the new FaceTime camera. Finally, the design continues to be one of the best for tablets.

 Key Specs

  • Liquid Retina display.
  • 10.9-inch (diagonal) LEDbacklit MultiTouch display with IPS technology.
  • 2360-by-1640-pixel resolution at 264 pixels per inch (PPI)
  • Wide color display (P3)
  • True Tone display.
  • Fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating.
  • Fully laminated display.
  • Antireflective coating.

 Apple iPad mini (2021)

 Apple has finally differentiated its small tablet from the rest of its lineup with the release of this new iPad mini. The company now provides consumers with a high-performance gadget that is more than just a "little iPad" for those who prefer reading to watching videos and want to check the web, take notes, or even read books and periodicals on a device that is not too wide or heavy.

 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT Ipads IN KENYA

What Screen Size should I pick?

We advise against selecting an iPad less than 10 inches if your usage patterns lean more toward online browsing or video watching. You may see your material on this smallest screen size very comfortably.

If you're used to using your tablet as a digital journal or sketching while you're on the go, going with an 8-inch iPad mini is an intelligent choice. Its small size is not a barrier; on the contrary, it allows you to work and enjoy yourself anywhere without feeling the weight of a larger model.

Is a mobile version necessary?

According to us, there is no reason to choose the more expensive, 4G/ 5G capable version of the iPad if you want to use it primarily at home. Sharing a connection will be more than adequate for some sporadic mobility requirements.

 For anyone who uses their iPad professionally, remarkably when it is being used on the go as a production tool, cellular models are strongly advised. You can use your tablet more quickly and conveniently with a cellular connection.

How long is the iPad good for?

For many years, Apple has specialized in providing support for its products. Without taking any risks, we can assume that an iPad purchased today will gain from at least five years' worth of software updates and the inclusion of several features. The comparative models' chips are modern and potent, and they can support the various iterations of iPadOS that Apple may release in the coming years.

Can an iPad replace my computer?

Since iPadOS replaced iOS, the Apple tablet has benefited from numerous interface upgrades that provide it additional versatility for business use. The system first includes compatibility for the keyboard and mouse set, regardless of whether you use an Apple-designed case or a Bluetooth-enabled third-party device. We should also mention the multitasking technology, which enables you to run two applications and a floating window simultaneously.

 The majority of office and professional software has an iPad version as well. However, the system is still somewhat constrained and rigid—certainly more so than on a conventional PC. Before making your final decision, we urge you to test an iPad for your business for a few days to determine if the gadget fits you.
