The best iPad 2020: is the iPad Air, Mini or Pro the best for you?

Our best iPad guide is sure to get a new entry very soon, as Apple recently launched the iPad Pro 2020 and we’re in the process of putting it through a full review. So if you’re curious about how that will rank, make sure to check back soon.

And yet more iPads are on the horizon, as we’re expecting to see the iPad Air 4 this year, likely followed by a new iPad Mini in 2021. So there will be new options before too long, and we’ll be sure to update this list with Apple’s latest slates as and when they arrive.

There’s no need to wait though as there are already loads of excellent iPads, as you can see below, coming in at a range of sizes and prices.

In fact, our best iPad list has something suited to almost everyone, from the high-end iPad Pro 11 to the comparatively budget iPad 10.2, and from the massive iPad Pro 12.9 (2018) to the compact iPad mini (2019).

Those are just some of the tablets we’ve included, so really, as long as you’re happy with iPadOS there should be an ideal slate for you here. And with iPadOS 14 landing before long there will also soon be new software to enjoy on whatever iPad you opt for.

But to help you decide on the ideal Apple hardware this guide is more than just a ranked list – it includes full details of each included iPad, such as the specs, the main good and bad points, an overview, and a link to our full review, for an even closer look.

And if you decide an iPad isn’t for you, make sure to check out our best tablet, best Android tablet, and best cheap tablet guides for other options.

1. iPad Pro 11

The best iPad you can buy right now

Weight: 468g | Dimensions: 247.6 x 178.5 x 5.9 mm | OS: iPadOS 13 | Screen size: 11-inch | Resolution: 2388 x 1668 pixels | CPU: A12X Bionic | Storage: 64GB/256GB/512GB/1TB | microSD slot: No | Battery: 7,812mAh | Rear camera: 12MP | Front camera: 7MP

Pencil clips on, finally

Insane amount of power for a tablet

Software limits laptop experience

Pencil and keyboard expensive extras

The iPad Pro 11 is the best iPad you can buy right now. It may be expensive, but it’s Apple’s most powerful tablet and furthers the 2-in-1 design ethos if you spring for the pricey new keyboard cover folio. 

It has a laptop-like experience in design and performance, and the new Apple Pencil magnetically clips onto the frame of the new iPad Pro. With superb speakers and a great new screen-to-body ratio, it’s hard not to fall in love with the finely crafted hardware design. 

And with the arrival of iPadOS its software has been transformed, making it even better than it was at launch.

However, it doesn’t have a headphone jack. If you want the standard 3.5mm jack in a computer-like device, you’ll spring for an actual computer.

Everything about the iPad Pro 11 makes it the best experience if you’re looking for the best Apple tablet – you’ll just need to swallow the high price – but it’s no MacBook replacement.
