Buying an iPad is a major decision. Prices range from $499 to $2,399, before AppleCare+ and taxes.

To complicate things further, Apple staggers iPad releases and technology upgrades. Depending on the time of year, you may find a cheaper model is faster than a more expensive one.

With so many factors at play, it’s a good idea to get an expert opinion.

We look at:

  • When To Buy – We keep a close eye on Apple news and rumors so we provide solid advice.
  • Which iPad – Do you buy an iPad, iPad Mini, iPad Air or iPad Pro?
  • Screen Size  – This varies from 8.3″ to 12.9″. Larger screens mean more weight. We help you find the right balance.
  • Storage – iPads vary from 256GB to 2TB. Storage is expensive. Knowing what you need saves money.
  • Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi and Cellular – Do you need cellular? It costs more and for many users it’s not necessary.
