Having been launched several years ago, tablets have increased in popularity as years have gone by and despite offering fewer devices to choose from than smartphones, there are some interesting choices out there. Such device manufacturer is Apple with their iPad series which currently has five options to choose from. We are going to compare them to find out which one suits you best.
iPad Mini 2
If you want a cheap version of a premium product you can’t go wrong with Apple’s iPad Mini 2. It comes with a 7.9 inch display, 32GB of internal storage and a battery which will last you about 10 hours. Bearing a price tag from 239 to 359 pounds from the most powerful version, it is dirt cheap when it comes to an Apple device.
It comes with silver and space grey color variants and it lacks useful technology such as Touch ID and Apple Pay. Camera wise, it comes with a 1.2 megapixel front sensor paired with a 5 megapixel back snapper, being powered by an A7 processor with a M7 motion coprocessor.
iPad Mini 4
The Mini 4 is a more expensive and upgraded version of iPad Mini 2 as it is a bit larger sporting a 7.9 inch screen with two storage variants which come at 32GB and 128GB. Its battery lasts up to 10 hours and is available for purchase for 379 to 499 pounds.
The device is powered by an A8 processor with M8 motion coprocessor. Unlike the iPad 2 Mini it comes with Touch ID, burst mode and slow motion video recording. Another upgrade consists of the 8 megapixel rear sensor.
iPad Air 2
Apple’s iPad Air 2 is considered the cheapest version of a slightly large tablet without having to file for bankruptcy. It comes with Touch ID, Apple Pay, burst mode and slow motion video recorded as well as a laminated display which provides protection from reflections.
It sports a 9.7 inch display with two internal storage variants which include the likes of 32GB and 128GB with a similar battery which will give you 10 hours of uptime. In terms of pricing, it is available from 379 to 499 pounds and considering its specs it’s a great choice to make.
The device is powered by a faster A8X paired with a M8 motion processor and is pretty much a bang for the money asked for it. One could not go wrong by making the choice to purchase this device.
iPad Pro 9.7
This device has the same size as the iPad Air 2 but it comes with a newer technology which is available on iPhone smartphones called True Tone. That means a broader color scaling as well as the ability to use an Apple Pencil on its display.
It comes with three internal storage variants, that of 32GB, 128GB and 256GB. Its battery is basically the same as the ones encountered previously and it can cost for as much as 849 when purchasing the most expensive one. Other improvements include a four speaker setup and runs with a A9X chip under its bonnet.
The iPad Pro 9.7 comes with a 12 megapixel back snapper and a 5 megapixel front facing one, great for recording video content and making video calls. They both offer flash.
iPad Pro 12.9
This device gives all other tablets on the market a run for the market as it comes equipped with a whopping 12.9 display. It comes with three storage variants which include 32GB, 128GB and 256GB. In terms of battery life it still offers at least 10 hours of uptime.
The same feature such as True Tone, Touch ID and Apple Pay are being made available and is also powered by the powerful A9X paired with the M9 coprocessor. It also comes equipped with Apple Pencil which offers a wide variety of software to play with such as Adobe.
