There have been several years of on-and-off recession where I live, and in many places around the world. There's currently a cost of living crisis going on, so buying tech isn't really a priority to many people.
In this department these two devices are a close match, since the iPad 2017 retained none of the new features introduced with the iPad Pro tablets. Neither the iPad 2017 nor the iPad mini 4 get Apple Pencil or Smart Keyboard compatibility; or quad-speaker audio; or True Tone display tech.
I'm that 5G guy. I've actually been here for every \"G.\" I've reviewed well over a thousand products during 18 years working full-time at PCMag.com, including every generation of the iPhone and the Samsung Galaxy S. I also write a weekly newsletter, Fully Mobilized, where I obsess about phones and networks.
Yes, this 2017 model is bigger and heavier than the iPad Air 2 and the iPad Pro 9.7. At 6.6 by 9.4 by 0.3 inches (HWD) and 1 pound, it's even heavier than the original iPad Air. You can feel the difference if you pay attention, but it's...just not a big deal. These are thin and light tablets no matter what, and the slight difference in weight (basically an ounce) isn't terribly meaningful.
What is an iPad for We think it's for web browsing, second-screen video watching, gaming, and reading. And for all of those uses, the 2017 iPad is excellent. Its A9 processor is even capable of video conferencing and low-key Microsoft Office work without a problem.
If you don't own a tablet at all, the 2017 iPad offers better value than the iPad mini 4 ( at Amazon)(Opens in a new window) . It also outpaces its best Android competitor, the Asus ZenPad 3s 10, which gives you more storage and better speaker quality, but inferior cameras, battery life, and gaming performance. That makes the new iPad the best all-around tablet for the most people, and our Editors' Choice.
That's why I'm surprised that I'm as excited as I am about this new 2017 model, a 9.7-inch tablet simply called iPad. Like the superthin 12-inch MacBook, it drops all the honorifics -- no Air, Pro or Mini here -- and instead positions itself as the most purely distilled example of the concept. Not the bells-and-whistles flagship, but the one that delivers the iPad basics at a very competitive cost.
Apple says new smart covers and related accessories for the iPad are backwards compatible with the original iPad Air line, but the reverse may not be true because of some shifting in where the magnets that control the sleep/wake feature are located.
Layer filters apply the effect across the entire layer of a canvas. Pencil filters are applied only when and where you paint on the layer. On iPads that don't support Apple Pencil a filter will always apply on the entire layer.

On the flipside, the benefit of regurgitating the previous iPad chassis is Apple has retained the headphone jack. This means iPads continue to be the only iOS devices where Apple retains this popular port.
The new 2019 iPad Air retails for $499 and goes all the way up to $779 for a 256GB, Wi-Fi and cellular model. We've been using this iPad as our daily tablet for the past few days to watch YouTube videos or catch up on some shows on Hulu, answer emails and doodle some artworks for fun. Before Apple announced this new Air we regularly used the 10.5-inch iPad Pro from 2017 which physically looks identical to this new iPad Air, minus an extra set of speakers at the top, and a camera flash on the back.
If you're looking to purchase your first iPad and you don't want the new iPad mini or the regular 9.7-inch iPad or just don't have enough money to buy the new 11-inch or 12.9-inch Pro models, look into the 2017 iPad Pro. It's almost the same price, if not a bit less expensive than the new 2019 iPad Air, plus you're getting a much better display with ProMotion, four speakers, and a slightly better camera.
Apple authorized resellers are currently accepting orders for the new 2019 iPad Air and iPad mini 5 with discounts of up to $10 off. Meanwhile, Apple's 2017 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pros are up to $380 off instantly.
Apple quietly released a new iPad in March 2017, simply called iPad. The new model replaces the iPad Air 2 as Apple's standard tablet offering, sitting above the iPad mini 4 and below the two iPad Pro models.
The new Apple iPad (2017) has the same design as the iPad Air 2, and on the surface you'd be hard pressed to tell the difference. The new iPad has put on a bit of weight though, coming in at 469g for the Wi-Fi only model and 478g for the Wi-Fi and 4G LTE variant - making it heavier than the iPad Pro 9.7 too. In reality, this weight difference won't make much difference to your experience, but it's something worth noting.
The new iPad 2017 offers the same size and resolution as the iPad Air 2, but Apple claims the new model has a brighter screen. As we mentioned though, it loses out on the fully laminated and anti-reflective features found on the iPad Air 2 and Pro models, which is why the new model is a little thicker. Neither the iPad Air 2 or the new iPad have Apple's True Tone technology on board.
The Apple iPad Air 2 and new iPad (2017) both feature an 8-megapixel rear camera, coupled with a 1.2-megapixel front camera. As tablets aren't as commonly used for taking shots as smartphones, this is more than adequate. They are the same cameras as found on the iPhone 5S, meaning that while the iPad Air 2 and new iPad's cameras are good, they aren't as good as the iPhone 6S and therefore the iPad Pro 9.7.
The new iPad (2017) meanwhile features a slightly faster 64-bit A9 processor. It's not quite on the same level as the A9X processor found in the iPad Pro, but it should provide a noticeable increase in performance over the iPad Air 2. Both the iPad Air 2 and new iPad are claimed to deliver up to 10 hours battery life.
Both the iPad Air 2 and the new iPad (2017) are great tablets. Not a huge amount has changed in the new model, except for a lower price, which is always welcome, a faster processor and a lack of the fully laminated display.
The iPad 9.7-inch (officially iPad (5th generation)) is a tablet computer designed, developed, and marketed by Apple Inc. After its announcement on March 21, 2017, conflicting naming conventions spawned a number of different names, including \"seventh-generation iPad\" or \"iPad (2017)\".
This iPad model was announced by Apple on March 24, 2017 in a press release. There has been confusion around its naming, being referred to as just \"iPad\" in marketing, but called the \"fifth-generation iPad\" in official statements and specifications sheets, a title previously taken by 2013's iPad Air. Other sources refer to it as the \"seventh-generation iPad\", when including the iPad Air and iPad Air 2 as the fifth- and sixth-generation iPads respectively. It has also been referred to as \"iPad 2017\".
At the time of its original release, the iPad shipped with iOS 10, a version of Apple's mobile operating system. New units sold come with the new iOS 11 operating system after its Fall 2017 release. The included Touch ID fingerprint sensor allows the user to unlock the device as well as approve purchases from the App Store, iTunes Store, and iBooks Store. Touch ID and Apple Pay let the user purchase items from websites or from within apps.
Sascha Segan of PC Magazine wrote that \"The Apple iPad is more affordable than ever\" and noted that \"While there's little reason for existing iPad owners to upgrade, the new iPad's price stabs a stake into the heart of many competing Android tablets\". Although criticizing the non-laminated display for being \"a little more washed out than its predecessor\", he claimed that he \"couldn't see a measurable difference\" and that it's \"a nominal degradation in quality that doesn't really matter in everyday use\". Segan also praised performance compared to the prior iPad models, and also praised improved Wi-Fi performance, writing that it is \"quite impressive\" with \"double the Wi-Fi speeds on the new iPad than I did on the Air 2\". Jeff Benjamin of 9to5Mac wrote that \"Sure, it lacks the gorgeous laminated, anti-reflective display of the iPad Air 2, and sure it's not as svelte in either thickness or weight. But there's no denying that the 2017 iPad with A9 dual core processor in tow, is a good value\". He described the tablet as a \"solid buy for upgraders and new users\".
Igor Bonifacic of MobileSyrup also praised the performance, as well as number of iPad apps available, but criticized the camera for being outdated and keyboard/Pencil incompatibility, with a summarization reading: \"The 2017 iPad is not an exciting tablet. But then it's not supposed to be exciting, [...] Apple's latest tablet is an iterative update designed to appeal to a specific subset of consumers\". Bonifacic also called the tablet \"perfect for first-time tablet buyers\". Chris Velazco of Engadget praised battery life, describing it as \"one of the best iPads we've tested\", but also criticized the lack of anti-reflection on the display, calling it \"another cost-saving measure that I wish Apple had reconsidered\". 59ce067264
