Apple 10.2-Inch iPad (Latest Model) with Wi-Fi - 32GB
The best iPad so far. Even better if you purchase a keyboard. The 32 GB is barely enough for any serious applications. Camera is only ok but good enough for daily work. Lightening connection is good but a more modern USB-C connection should be better. I am very impressed with this upgrade. Looking forward to the coming iPad 9.
I love my tiny iPad. It matches my MacBook Air and they are both styling. I sometime use them at the same time, one playing tunes and writing on the other. I feel so lucky to have both of them. I bought them for myself, best Christmas gifts ever.

Apple iPad 10.2in (8th gen, 2020) review: Still got it
The cheapest Apple iPad is an even better bargain in 2020Full Review
A:AnswerThe only difference is that the 8th gen has the faster A12 SoC compared to the A10. Since the A12 is both the CPU and GPU, graphics and processing speed will be improved. Everything else is the same, though.

A:AnswerThis isn’t really the place to ask general questions about technology, but I’ll provide an answer as it pertains to iPads.
ALL new iPads are unlocked. If a device is “locked,” it means that its cellular capability is tied to a specific cellular carrier, like AT&T, or Verizon, etc. But every new iPad that has cellular ability works with all carriers, generally, rather than just a specific carrier, so in that sense all new iPads are unlocked. But of course some iPads have cellular capability and some don’t. And, by the way, the phrase is “WiFi and unlocked,” not “WiFi unlocked.” The lock part and the WiFi part are two separate things.
In contrast, cell phones typically DO provide a choice between “locked” and “unlocked.” For example, you might buy an iPhone that is “locked” to AT&T, meaning that AT&T is the only carrier you can use with that phone. Of course instead a phone might be locked to Verizon, or T-Mobile, etc. When a phone is said to be “unlocked,” that means it is NOT limited to a specific carrier. It can work with all carriers.
