Apple manufactures its tablets under the name iPad and supports portable computing for business, educational and multimedia entertainment purposes. Released in 2010, these devices run on the Apple's proprietary iOS and offer storage up to 128GB. The best Apple tablets come in two sizes: 9.7 inch and 7.9 inch - iPad (2nd and 4th generation) and iPad Mini.

iPads grant Wi-Fi connectivity and also support cellular networks on select models. The best Apple tablets with an optional cellular feature arrive with a micro-SIM card tray and support AT&T, Sprint and Verizon carriers.

The 9.7 inch iPad model comes with Retina Display and iPad Mini doesn't. Retina Display is an Apple-invented technology for viewing high quality and crisp visuals available only on 4th generation iPad models.

Every iPad has a LED-backlit multi-touch display with IPS technology and run on Dual-core A6X processor with quad-core graphics (Dual-core A5 processor for 2nd generation iPad and iPad Mini). Apple offers different iPad storage options of 16GB, 32GB, 64GB and 128GB at increasing order of prices. iPad's also come with HD camera for photography and video recording.

Apple allows you to download numerous productive iPad specific applications from the inbuilt App Store application. The other useful content such as books, music, music videos and movies can be downloaded from the yet another built-in application - iTunes.

*Apple no longer manufactures the 1st and the 3rd generation iPad's.
