Let’s be honest, the iPad, as a standalone tablet, is so far ahead of the competition in terms of hardware, software, and app support, that it’s just getting silly now.
I mean, just take a look at our best tablets list and you’ll see the top three spots are taken by Apple’s slates — and for a good reason. Nothing out there gives you an experience so finely tuned as an iPad, which elevates it above competing tablets that are great for only gaming and binge-watching.
And thanks to the tablet-centric OS, you can actually get stuff done on an iPad — making it easier for touch operation than the likes of Microsoft’s Surface Pro 7. If you’re in the market for an Apple tablet, let us help by finding the best of the rare iPad price cuts.
Plus, they’re about to become a whole lot more useful with iPadOS 15, which was unveiled at WWDC 2021 and (finally) brings widgets to the home screen, alongside a load of new features!
