Apple refreshing their iPad line again
Written by Josh Perbott on April 14, 2019
While the iPhones may not be at their best time in selling, one thing is for sure, if you are looking to buy a tablet, there really is no better way to go than with an iPad. What once was a tough competition, pretty similar to that of the smartphone world, is now an Apple dominated market.
However, buying an iPad is not as simple as just buying whatever is new, or buying the last one to come out. Apple has already announced two new iPad models for spring 2019 and they are simply great.
Here we will bring you a quick recap on their price, specs and features so you can make the best decision possible when choosing which iPad is the right one for you, so let’s talk about them
iPad Air (2019)
A well deserved retake on one of the older models of the iPad, the iPad Air was released in March 18, and with some interesting upgrades on-board. Starting at $499, the iPad Air (2019) is like a mid point between the affordable and the expensier iPad’s such as the maxed out 12.9 iPad Pro (2019) that goes up to a ridiculous $1899. But just what’s packing on this new device, let’s find out.
- A 10.5’ screen means bigger display than the original iPad Air, it’s a laminated display and exponentially better than the 9.7’ display you get on the basic 2018 iPad. No True-Motion on this one either though.
- It features Touch ID instead of face ID, the looks of the device are pretty similar to the older 10.5’ iPad Pro.
- Unlike the Pro line of iPads, you get only dual speakers instead of the four-speaker arrangement.
- It features the latest A12 processor just like the new Apple devices, fast and tough
- Smart Connector allows you to use the pro keyboard
- The iPad Air is compatible with the Apple Pencil 1. Excellent for artists, designers or even to take notes wherever you go
Overall the new iPad Air is a great choice if you want a slightly bigger iPad but you don’t thik you’ll need all the pro features available with the newer or the older iPad Pro line, starting at $499 you get a powerful machine with great design and nice features.
iPad Mini (2019)
Apple is trying really hard to keep all screen sizes covered, and in order to satisfy as many customers as possible, they are releasing a new version of the almost forgotten iPad Mini line, which hasn’t been updated since 2015 when the iPad Mini 4 came out.
So, what could make you consider getting this instead of the newly released 2018 iad? Well, let’s check some of its key features:
- A killer small tablet, with a 7.9’ display you get one pretty much the strongest tablet in that screen size range at an accessible price.
- The same A12 processor gives it amazing performance
- Support for the first-generation apple pencil makes it excellent for taking notes on the go
- Starting at $399 and with a laminated display and the latest A12 processor, if you’re looking for a small tablet this could be the best way to go.
