iPad 2017 Gadget Review: The Ideal Tablet – If You Need an Upgrade

Apple’s Finest Tablet iPad Air

Way back in 2013, Apple completed the tablet when it had released the iPad Air and introduced a thinner, lighter design with a more compact body together with fingerprint sensor in its tablet. It was then considered as the Apple’s finest tablet.

Not much has been changed since then and the iPad Pro introduced in 2015 developed a new line for specialized users though the consumer grade device had not been updated for around two and half years. iPad sales seem to have fallen for some time now and users have not improved as they should with iPhones.

Several users still tend to be using the iPad 2 and 3 that does not run iOS 10, which is the latest operating system of Apple. Moreover the next version of iOS would probably drop the assistance for 32- bit apps thus making the iPad 5 out-dated.  This would mean that the new features together with security updates have not been done to most of the iPad users.

Apple’s new iPad, which had been announced three weeks back with much display, does not tend to have much by way of new features.  On the contrary it is being pitched as the appropriate upgrade for users of tabs which are four, five or six years old.


Slightly Thicker Chassis Same as Original iPad Air

The latest one at £339 is £40 cheaper than its forerunner that Apple expects would attract consumers in upgrading. The 9.7-inch screen is said to be much brighter about 500 nits in contrast to the Air 2’s 400, though the difference is not much noticeable.  Besides this is also a bit thicker than the Air 2 at 7.5 mm to the 6.1 mm of its waif-life precursor which shows a bit of cost-cutting from the point of view of cutting the price down for Apple.

However it has a marginal difference. The slightly thicker chassis tends to be the same as the original iPad Air and if the user is looking for a case other than the snap-on cover of Apple, then they should make a note of this.

The other variance is the A-9 chip of Apple which gives a performance upgrade on the A8 in the case of iPad Air 2.  This means that it would possibility have updates of iOS software for one year longer.

Taking into consideration that people seem to hold on to their tabs for few years, this seems to be an essential alteration.

Missed Some of the Features of iPad Pro

The 1.2 megapixel selfie camera and the 8-megapixel camera has not changed since the only thing is camera could be useful is for video calls. None of them seem to have the 10-hour battery life which Apple has claimed and that the latest one functions flawlessly.

The new tab seems to have missed out on some of the features of the iPad Pro.  The new tab is said to be everything which a tablets may require.  It has a great screen, with long battery life together with abundantly power. As in the case of the last two iPads, it had the Touch ID fingerprint sensor that not only tends to get unlock but is also being utilised more for payments.  Priced at £339, its price cut has been the most noticeable factor and not many essential changes have taken place in the new iPad.
