Which iPad to Buy?

All the iPads below are compatible with Apple Pencil, but the 2018 iPad and the iPad Air are compatible with the version 1 (that plugs into the bottom) while the iPad Pros below are compatible with version 2.

This can be a hard question to answer because it really comes down to what each person needs/wants out of a tablet. I will try to make some broad generalizations to help someone who may really not know which model would be best for them (and feel free to chime in in the comment section on your thoughts as well):

  • 2018 9.7″ iPad – great for media consumption and a general purpose tablet
    • works with the first generation iPad Pencil so great for note and drawings as well!
  • 2019 iPad Air – great for someone who wants an elegant keyboard solution and enough power to manage multiple browsers and some content editing. The 10.5″ display is also a nice upgrade from the 9.7″ iPad display
    • works with the first generation iPad Pencil, which is a disappointment since it is the newest release iPad
    • cheapest iPad that has an Apple Smart Keyboard option
  • 2018 iPad Pros – great for the professional or creator that demands top performance from a tablet. This includes someone who is doing heavier photo editing/video editing on their tablet or wants something that can handle many tasks without having to bring a laptop. Also good for someone who wants more than 256GB of storage

There you go! 🙂

2018 9.7″ iPad

Link: 32GB iPad | 128GB iPad

These are on sale at the usual sale price of $249 (down from $329) for the 32GB version and $349 for the 128GB version. With both versions working with the Apple Pencil, these truly are great bargain deals for an excellent tablet.

The cellular version of the 128GB is also on sale.

2019 iPad Air

This is the latest iPad so it is no surprise that the savings is the most minimal. You will only get a $30 savings but if this is a tablet you want, might as well save something!

IPad Pro 11”

Let me head this section by saying that, with the beta of iPadOS now installed on my iPad Pro 11″, the iPad Pro 11″ is definitely my favorite travel computing device now! I have file support for external drives, I have split screen capability with the same apps (great for researching posts), I have a shrinkable onscreen keyboard for less blocking of the screen, and a full desktop version of Safari for non-limited browsing! This is awesome now!

This is the model I have and I think it is the perfect size for some one that will be taking it around with them all the time. If you can deal with cloud-based storage, the 64GB should be sufficient but if you plan on using it for photo editing (with Adobe Lightroom or the full Photoshop coming later this year), you may want to go up to 256GB of storage since you cannot expand the onboard storage. Both Silver and Space Gray are on sale.

Cellular models are discounted as well! This is a great way to add a Google Fi data SIM and have fast data coverage around the world for a flat $10 per 1GB!

IPad Pro 12.9”

This has the same display size as the older 12.9” iPad Pro models but they shrunk the bezels to make it quite a bit smaller and lighter.

I actually type most of my blog posts on my 11” iPad Pro so I can tell you I am quite familiar with it. While there are some quirks, it is amazing how portable and multi-functional it is for me.

Not only does the 1TB have an insane amount of local storage but it is the only iPad with the 6GB of RAM installed.
