iPad Pro (2021)

Pros:

  • Powerful M1 Chip

  • Supports Magic Keyboard

  • 120Hz Promotion Display

  • Thunderbolt support

  • 5G support

Cons:

  • Really Expensive
  • No Touch ID

The iPad Pro (2021) is Apple’s most expensive iPad, starting at $799 for the 11inch and $1099 for the 12.9 inch. The starting price is definitely high, though it’s understandable when you understand how powerful the iPad Pro is. The M1 Chip on the iPad Pro is the same chip used on their current MacBook lineup, which explains why it’s extremely powerful. Anything like video or photo editing will be a breeze for the iPad Pro, and it’s an even better experience when combined with the Liquid Retina XDR display. 120Hz will make gaming and editing look much smoother, and overall provide a better experience. As the name suggests, this iPad Pro is only for the “Professionals”. The Magic Keyboard and thunderbolt support allow for many different accessories to be added to the iPad Pro, helping it achieve even greater things. The iPad Pro is basically a Laptop running iPadOS, so if you absolutely need the most power for your tasks, the iPad Pro is your best bet.

iPad Air (2020)

Pros:

  • Touch ID
  • Supports Magic Keyboard
  • Multiple Colors
  • USB-C connector

Cons:

  • No 5G support
  • No thunderbolt support
  • No Face ID

The iPad Air (2021) is the next tier of iPads after the iPad Pro. It is equipped with the A14 Bionic chip which is extremely powerful, not as powerful as the M1 chip though. The starting price of the iPad Air (2021) is $599, this is $200 less than the iPad Pro. The iPad Air has an equivalent size to the 11 inch iPad Pro, though the screen size is 10.9 inches, as the bezels on the iPad air are slightly thicker. The iPad Air (2021) is more suitable for light users that don’t require a M1 chip for their tasks, such as students for example. Apple Pencil 2 is also supported, so taking notes on the iPad Air will be extremely smooth. If you need an iPad for mediocre daily tasks that don’t require absolute processing power, the iPad Air (2021) is definitely your go-to.

Just “iPad” 2021

Pros:

  • Low Price (Good value)
  • Touch ID support
  • Audio Jack

Cons:

  • Outdated design
  • Not so powerful
  • Lightning Connecter
  • No 5G support

Well, it’s as basic as it can get for an iPad. The iPad (2021) starts at the low price of $329, making it the cheapest iPad in the lineup. It is equipped with the A13 Bionic Chip, which is relatively powerful, but doesn’t live up to the standards of the other iPads in the lineup. The biggest problem with the iPad (2021) is the outdated design, with the Home-button and chunky bezels. All iPads including the iPad mini received a redesign this year, except for the regular iPad. However considering the $329 price tag, it is a very good value tablet. The iPad (2021) is suitable for students on a low budget, or users who want an iPad for its basics. The iPad supports the first generation Apple pencil, as well as Apple’s smart keyboard. Overall, it is “just the iPad”, it beats all other tablets in the basics, but don’t expect much from it.

iPad mini (2021)

Pros:

  • Versatile
  • Multiple Colors
  • Touch ID
  • A15 Bionic
  • 5G support
  • USB-C connector

Cons:

  • No support for Apple’s Smart Keyboard
  • Display small (for some users)
