Apple 10.2-Inch iPad (Latest Model) with Wi-Fi + Cellular - 128GB (Verizon)
I picked this IPAD to replace an Android tablet. Even though I have an Android phone but used an Iphone at work, I knew that the Apple IOS was deferent from the Android tablet I was replacing, it was a better deal. I wanted a tablet that I could easily take with me on trips. This model has a larger display than the one it replaced. It is lighter and has more memory. The best thing for me was that it was on sale and I had a gift card to lower my out of pocket cost.

Apple iPad (8th Gen) review: The new normal
More than a decade after the original iPad launched, the now entry-level tablet is in its 8th Gen form for 2020. Is it the slate to snag?Full Review
A:AnswerThe Cellular option provides two things in an iPad. Primarily, it provides for the ability to subscribe to cellular data from one of many cellular companies. Once subscribed (which costs money), you are able to connect to the internet anytime you are in that cellular company’s service area. This is valuable for where you want to connect and do not have a WiFi option. The second thing the Cellular option provides in an iPad is GPS, which is required for reliable and precise location. Without the Cellular option, the iPad uses nearby WiFi and Bluetooth signals to try and identify its location. If none of those are nearby, the iPad has absolutely no idea where it is at (e.g. for mapping apps). Even if there are nearby WiFi and/or Bluetooth signals, they may not provide enough information to determine the location of the iPad, and when they do provide enough info, the location is not very precise (within a 100 yards, typically).
