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.

  • The iPad Air 2 balances seamless ease of use, app abundance, and raw power in its ever-so-slender frame, continuing Apple's reign atop the tablet heap.


  • I don't throw the word "perfect" around lightly -- actually, I never use it -- but the iPad Air 2 truly is the perfect tablet. It boasts the ultimate combination of form and function, thanks to its even-thinner design and more-dazzling display, as well as its faster A8X processor and sharper 8-MP camera. What truly sets the iPad apart is its roster of unbeatable apps and the way this tablet interacts seamlessly with the iPhone and Macs, thanks to iOS 8 features such as Handoff.


  • The iPad Air 2 is another triumph for Apple. The design and screen have improved in all the right ways, and the new A8X processor is nothing short of astonishing. This is still the best large tablet around.
    Best Android Tablets Round-up


  • The Apple iPad mini 3 is a , but you can get essentially the same experience from its predecessor for $100 less.


  • Long battery life, a crisp display and an excellent app selection are the heart of any good tablet. The iPad mini 3 offers all of these wrapped in a cool gold color, and tops the sundae with Apple's Touch ID feature. But if you can do without the gold and fingerprint reader, you can get all the same specs in the iPad mini 2 for $100 less.


  • - The speakers are too close together to provide adequate stereo separation.
    - Essentially the same tablet as the iPad mini 2 but a lot more expensive.
    - Made of aluminium with a shiny diamond-cut edge where it meets the screen, it looks and feels great in your hand.


  • The iPad Air is Apple's attempt to make the tablet disappear. The result is an unusually slim, well-built platform for the best array of apps in the business.


  • The iPad Air's jaw-droppingly compact design, faster performance and excellent endurance -- combined with the best app selection -- make this the tablet to beat.


  • The iPad Air is the best overall 10-inch tablet you can buy by quite a margin. The huge weight reduction makes the larger of the two iPads a far more attractive option again, while retaining all the iPads traditional strengths such as its unrivalled collection of tablet optimised apps. A revolution it isn't, but we find it very hard to see how Apple can top this version now.


  • The iPad mini 2 is the best value iOS product on the market today, letting you into the Apple app world without breaking the bank.


  • The iPad mini with Retina Display boasts the sharpest screen in its class, a powerful A7 chip and epic battery life -- plus the best app selection -- all in a compact and elegant design.


  • The iPad mini Retina has improved exactly where it needed to. Better screen, better camera and much faster processor are all present, but it's not a wildly different experience from the original iPad mini. That's no bad thing as the iPad mini 2 is one of the best small-form tablets on the market, even if the extra cost is a little hard to justify.


  • The iPad mini lets you run the best library of apps in the biz on a tablet you'll actually want to carry, but it's not the best small-screen tablet you can buy.


  • Certainly the most desirable 7-inch tablet on the market, the iPad mini's £269 starting price is considerably higher than the competition but for that outlay you get a device that, although not specs superior, is a far more enticing option than much of what is already on the market.

    Combining a brushed aluminium back with seamlessly curved edges and a fascia that will be familiar to full-sized iPad owners, the iPad mini is a device that looks and feels every penny that you pay for it.


  • Can we see someone owning an iPhone 5, iPad mini and new iPad 4? Actually, maybe...and not just the pointlessly rich. The iPhone is the perfect device for hopping in and out of content, giving you the internet all the time and generally allowing you to play more simple games.
    The iPad mini is perfect for a train ride: it's just the right size for a few TV episodes when packed nose to nose with fellow commuters before slipping it back into a bag or pocket when leaping for your platform.
