    Awesome Tech for a Budget Price

    It took me a while to decide to replace my iPad, I waited to see if Apple would release a new iPod Touch. They didn't. But along came this reasonably priced iPad with A10 Processor so I decided it was time. A few minor disappointments, its a bit weighty for me personally due to health issues, my favorite App doesn't work on iOs 11, and there was no option for 64GB so I had to extend my budget for the 128GB. I already hit 31GB with audio books and apps so the 32GB wouldn't have worked. Plus I wish the camera were better quality ... BUT None of these takes away from the fact that this is an excellent value for the money. The ability to use the pencil to draw is a huge bonus. I bought a Zagg HD screen protector I prefer that to the glass. Best Buy was awesome and installed the screen protector perfectly, I cant tell its there plus it doesn't show finger prints. I had considered other tablets but wanted iOs vs android. Its just a matter of preference. I bought a ProCase iPad 9.7 Case 2018 it is a perfect fit for my space grey iPad.

    Bought one for my mom as a Mother’s Day present and had to get this gold one for myself. If you’re an iPhone user (or another iOS device using iOS 11) it is super easy to set things up. Just put your devices next to each other and within minutes your iPad is ready for use with your apps and data synced and ready to go. Nice size (not too big, not too small). Light weight so holding it in one hand isn’t a problem. Of course you’ll definitely want a case that stands or another accessory if you want to watch movies without holding it. Powers up fast and moves between tasks with ease. Great battery life so far. Camera is adequate but if you’re looking for top iPad camera options the iPad Pro may better fit your needs. Neither has a camera that truly lives up to the iPhone X or 8/8 Plus (or 7S Plus for that matter) but it works. FaceTime camera isn’t stellar but it’s not terrible either. Overall if you’re looking for a nice iPad that can handle most users needs (including Apple Pencil compatibility if that’s important to you) then this is a great option at a more wallet-friendly price.

    iPad 9.7 Great Value at the Right Price

    I purchased this during a Best Buy promotion at a discounted price during a pre-Black Friday sale. I was looking for a basic iPad to supplement my iPad Mini 2 that I use all the time. I think it’s a great size for tablet computing- it’s a little easier on the eyes to read than the iPad Mini and the keyboard is larger which allows for easier typing for emails, text messages, etc. I also considered the iPad Pro 10.5. I was not interested in the brand new iPad Pro line from 2018 as that was much more than I needed, but again Best Buy offered a very good pre-Black Friday price on the 10.5 inch 2017 iPad Pro model. I compared the two side-by-side. The iPad 9.7 offered a tremendous value at the sale price and was a strong contender. I found it remarkably fast and responsive. The clarity of the screen is good, and it made for a definite upgrade over my old iPad Mini 2. However, I felt that the screen had too much glare and sounded a little plastic-like when tapped since it is not fully laminated. Visually, the air gap under the screen did not seem to be an issue. In the end, it was more a factor of the feel of the screen and the glare that was the deciding factor in the end. The iPad Pro 10.5 offered some additional features that I liked so I felt in the long run it was worth the extra money.

    Let me start out by saying that I have never been a fan of Apple or their products, However I was having issues with my tablet and when I reviewed the Android choices, none of them appealed to me, it's as though they are marking time. I decided to try an iPad. I was pleasantly surprised at how nice they are. As up to now, I have only had Android products, there has been a learning curve with iOS 11, it's not hard, just different. The apps work smoothly and without issue. I primarily use entertainment apps and Apple provides a full selection of apps for my subscriber services. I did download Microsoft Word and Outlook for access to work documents and emails and both work effortlessly. I purchased a Logitech bluetooth case/keyboard, which works very well. I don't have to use the virtual keyboard and prefer a real keyboard. Connecting to the keyboard was quick and painless. Wifi is outstanding, the tablet is able to take full advantage of my dual band ac router and download and upload speeds are blazing fast.

    I bought this as an upgrade for my aging iPad 4, and this is my third iPad. It’s nice and fast, and the screen is good and sharp. I decided not to spend the money on the pro models as this one is pro enough for me. It has the FaceTime camera and Touch ID which allows it to have Apple Pay for web sites and apps that support it. If you have or get an Apple Pencil, it supports that as well. It has a faster processor equivalent to the iPad version of the iPhone 7, which means that it is capable of viewing HEVC 4K video (and at least theoretically capable of editing it if you get it on the device), but the camera is an older camera that shoots no more than 1080p. For the most part, it feels very good and solid. The screen doesn’t feel as solid as my old iPad 4, but then again, this iPad is quite a bit less expensive for much more storage space. The screen also seems a bit smaller than the iPad 4, but it’s still big enough. Overall, I’m pleased with it and am really glad that Apple now has a great iPad available for this price.

    Best iPad short of the Pro series

    I’ve owned several different iterations of the iPad since it’s original release back in 2010. I was looking into the Pro-series of iPads, was disappointed that I missed out on the 9.7 version. Once Apple announced that they would provide Apple Pencil support AND at a discounted price, I knew I needed to get my hands on this new iPad. Overall I am impressed at how seemless it operates with the newer and more powerful A10 fusion chip. It is snappy and so far no lag when opening multiple windows. I purchased the 128GB version and was able to download a lot of material such as videos, books and comics. I am getting used to the Apple Pencil and the apps associated with it. This is by far the best iPad I’ve owned. Some cons about it regarding its size. The major problems I’ve had with each new edition is that you have to purchase new cases. I was hoping that my old Air/Air 2 cases would fit. They can work but it’s a right fit. I ended up buying the Smart Cover for it along with a Tempered glass screen cover.

    The iPad 128 is the perfect tablet that connects to all your Bluetooth devices, has radios, you tube and always connects to networks with no problems. You can get games, fun ones, radios, typing applications, music, iTunes, and so many other applications. I have lots of books I read and I found out the iPad comes in even 512 gb. The iPad is basically what I call a portable computer. You can connect a keyboard and type wirelessly and you can surf the web too. That is what commputers are made for also, and the iPad is so portable and easy to put in a backpack, that I don’t use my computer anymore. You can get cases for them, put it on your lap, and even read your books in the coffee shop. Once your done you can connect your headphones and listen to radios, audio books, and your iTunes playlist. All in all the iPad does more than a computer, comes with up to 512 gb, and is a portable easy to carry computer. I have the 128 gb and it’s more than the memory I need. All in all this is a Best Buy!

    This is the second iPad that I have owned. The first one was from 2012 and held up really well so I knew what I was getting with this one. It blows my mind that I was able to get this for $400 with a student discount. If you don’t need the 128gb version than you can get it for $300! It may not have the upgraded specs of the Pro models but those are 2x as much money. For less than a pro, I was able to get a 128gb model with insurance, keyboard, and Apple Pencil. What else more can you ask for? The battery life is great, the screen is bright, and the performance is the best of any tablet i’ve used recently (I own an older iPad for work and a samsung tab s2). Both of those are good but they were both about $500+ when they came out. If I didnt edit video part time, I wouldn’t need to use my MacBook. If you are just looking to edit documents or play some casual games, this is the iPad for you.

    I've never been a Apple fan but I jumped out there when they release a budget friendly iPad. I’ve have everything Samsung and my only gripe about Apple is expandable memory. I take a lot of photos of my family and I have to pick what folders to sync with iTunes. I have the Tabs 4 and put a 256 gb memory card in it plug it up to any computer and place any file I want. Apple you need iTunes for everything I place my sd card in my Tab S4 and still came out cheaper than the new iPad Pro. With Apple they want you to buy storage, come on Apple other than that I love the tablet for simple things like checking email, browse the web, YouTube. Things like that but for media consumption like photos, music, videos My Tab S4 all day. Keep in mind you shoot 4k or any video in HD you will eat up the memory quick. Shoot any photos with a high res solution you memory will be gone really really quick.

    So, my daughter has had an ipad for several years now, and I've resisted just because I didn't want to drink the Apple kool-aid, but I have to say, I wish I'd gotten one sooner. This thing is fantastic, and paired with an aluminum bluetooth keyboard, it's just like a small laptop. Which is exactly what I wanted. I'm a writer, and wanted to have something portable that would let me use my Scrivener program - which ruled out a Chromebook. I'm used to the set up of the ipad from being the troubleshooter for my daughter's whenever it had issues, so the learning curve was small even coming from Windows computers and Android phones. It's also very fast, especially compared to my other devices. I used it while out of town this summer to surf the net and check my email and watch youtube, and it was fantastic. I definitely recommend getting one, if you've been considering it.

    I was on the fence about which model to buy and i decided to go with this model due to the A10 processor. It’s very well equipped and out performs any iPad I’ve ever owned. I watched a bunch of reviews on the 2018 6th generation iPad and the reviews did not do it justice. The display is just as premium as any i-device I’ve ever toyed with. The only thing i noticed which was less than ideal was the speakers. The speakers are slightly above average at best but it’s Bluetooth capabilities and headphone jack more than made up for it. The addition of all of the touch gestures and features make the iPad a lot of fun to use. This is an amazing value and a recommended purchase if your on the fence about waiting or going with a previous gen Pro model. The addition of support for the Apple Pencil will be a nice feature to have. I’d highly recommend this product to anyone in the market for a premium tablet.

    Love this generation Apple! Everything about this iPad is just right! It packs a lot of punch in a smaller package. It has all the greatest features of the PRO models in the more normal iPad size we love. The screen is stunning, love that Apple Pencil finally works on them, and the split screen function is just delightful to use. The decision was a little more money for the 6th or save the 100$ for the 5th that was on sale... I’m so glad that we paid the full price for the 6th! I set everything up and played with it for a day or so and it’s been gifted to my mom who just is stunned by it versus her previous model. She is more intrigued to use all the functions and wants to keep getting apps and pushing the limits of her imagination, which is a great thing since she is recovering from cancer. So thank you Apple for a great product, and Best Buy as always it’s been a pleasure!

    Had been looking at upgrading my old ipad2 for over a year, and was not quite satisfied with the options available at that time. Either spend less and get an ipad that had less features than I desired, or splurge and go with the iPad Pro and pay for some features that I might not even use. When this came out in April I purchased within the first week. It balanced some of the features of the Pro, such as compatibility with the Apple Pencil, and faster processor than the previous model. Slightly larger screen size would have been perfect for me, but at the current price point, this ipad has great features. I am so glad I waited for this model. Haven’t quite explored all the features, but as a creative person, the possibilities are much more expanded with Apple Pencil compatibility. This ipad is FAST too. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to upgrade.

    I had to replace my granddaughters iPad mini’s and the salesman mentioned that the mini’s would not have the processor the iPad 6 Th generation did and was doubtful the mini would continue to be updated. Although this size was a little large for their tiny hands I decided to make the purchase so that it would be an appropriate tablet for several years. They are twins and I bought them mini’s when they were 2. They learned so much. About 3 months after the warranty expired both cracked their screens. They did not have a Zagg screen protector on them. Although the cases they had protected them from the terrible 2’s. Now they both have new iPads and Zagg screen protectors. I did have to go onto amazon to buy child appropriate cases. I wish Best Buy carried a bigger variety of child friendly accessories.

    I bought this iPad for my 9 year old to replace her laptop that died. After we visited the geek squad and were told it was beyond repair I took the money they gave her for the laptop an upgraded her to an iPad. I bought the one with the most memory and the latest version since they use them in school on a daily basis. She is able to access school websites and practice what she learned in class as well as work on other sites to get ahead. I have downloaded movies for her to watch when we travel and well as her own music to keep her occupied on trips. This iPad is doing a great job of keeping up with her and her friends and has not received one scratch nor have we had any technical problems. A must have in todays technological society. It also allows me to block any websites or apps I do not want her accessing

    The Apple Pencil is a game changer with this tablet. Tap the screen in lock mode and a blank note pops up. It saves so much time when my teacher starts lecturing. Being able to run two apps side by side allows me to run my textbook and pages/notes app at the same time. The augmented reality capability is so useful for nursing classes. I love the continuity with my phone if only it too would work with the Apple Pencil. iOS 12 (I’m running the beta right now) allows for greater color and nib customization. The storage is really important to me. For my needs, it’s pretty much a computer replacement. iPad Pro was out of the budget but this iPad has some of the features I needed most for a cost effective alternative.

    I have been an apple user since the original Iphone and have loved nearly every product they have pushed out since, except for the ipad. I never understood why anyone would want a larger iphone, until the most recent ipad update. The pencil changes everything. I no longer find myself reaching for my macbook when i need to accomplish "real work". I just grab my new Ipad with the pencil and i can get ALMOST everything done in a similar amount of time. I dont really use the pencil for drawing, since i am not a graphic designer, however i do prefer to type, browse and do just about everything else with this excellent new addition. HIGHLY recommended!

    I took my elderly mother to the store to purchase a new computer. I introduced her to the apple tablet thinking it would be an ideal setup for her. It was a lot more difficult for her to get it set up and use than was told at the store during shopping. To many passwords and not good support, which she purchased extra. She had a desk top prior, and she was going to purchase a laptop and I convinced her to try the tablet. She then asked two of her grandchildren to take a look at it and help her. Even they could not get the apps set up she wanted. To many passwords to maneuver around in the tablet. Would not recommend to others as she is still frustrated and not using it as she wants. So was a large waste of money

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
