iPad 9.7-inch (2017)

 

Apple's new iPad isn't revolutionary, inventive or, well, new. But for most people it's the tablet you should buy.

Apple iPad (2017) review

 

New iPad does everything you'd expect, but better and cheaper

Fast, smooth performance ; Bright screen and solid blacks ; Rich colours, crisp detail ; Beautiful design ; Good starting price

Screen is rather reflective ; No brand new features

Not the most revolutionary update, but the new, cheaper iPad continues to deliver class-leading performance

Expert review by : Dan Grabham Matthew Bolton (t3.com)

New iPad review: faster, longer lasting and with more storage. What's not to like?

 

Slightly thicker and heavier but the 5th gen iPad is improved in all the major areas

Cheapest 9.7-inch iPad ever ; Faster than before ; Giant battery life ; Starts at 32GB

Thicker and a little heavier ; No speaker improvement ; No expandability

Apple iPad (2017) review: Solid, affordable full-size tablet

 

Apple's newest basic iPad doesn't set the bar for ultimate performance in the tablet market, and it's not the most exciting iPad ever made, but

Great app ecosystem ; Easy to use interface ; Slick and reliable performance ; Long lasting battery

Screen not quite as good as the iPad Air 2

This iPad offers a solid, consistent tablet experience at the lowest price we’ve seen from Apple in a new, full-size tablet.

Apple iPad (2017) review

 

It might look like more of the same – from 2013, no less – but this iPad gets the power-to-price ratio just right

Powerful and snappy in varied use cases ; Slightly thicker body brings practical benefits ; Price is ideal for newcomers and upgraders

Reflective and hollow-sounding display ; Speakers still not up to much ; Rear camera is merely OK

It might look like a regression, but this iPad is affordable and has enough power within to serve you well for years.

Techradar Editor's Choice 2017

Expert review by : James Peckham (techradar.com)

New iPad (2017) review

 

Cheaper and better than an Air 2

Cheaper price ; Beautiful 9.7-inch screen ; Easy to hold design

Thicker than the Air ; Only A9 chipset ; No 256GB version

The new iPad may not be the most innovative product Apple has ever created, but it's an upgrade on the iPad Air 2 and the new version makes for a fantastic option at an even lower price than iPads of years past.

Apple iPad (9.7-inch, 2017) review

 

Editors' note, June 8, 2017: At its Worldwide Developer's Conference , Apple unveiled a new iPad Pro . Starting at $649, £619 and A$949, the new model replaces the original 9.7-inch iPad Pro , packing a bigger screen -- a 10.5-inch Retina display --...

Apple's new iPad delivers faster performance and a brighter screen than the model it replaces, at a price that's about half as much as the iPad Pro. Tight integration between the hardware, software and app store makes it easy to use.

It's a bit thicker and heavier than the now defunct iPad Air 2. It lacks the stylus support, better speakers and better screen of the iPad Pro.

Pro and Air 2 owners can skip this one, but for nearly everyone else, the updated iPad is an ideal all-around tablet at a fantastic price.

Apple iPad (2017) review: Not the iPad Air 3, but still a great tablet

 

It isn't the iPad Air 3 we expected, but decent all-round performance means it's the best sub-£500 tablet you can buy

Cheap (for an iPad) ; Great performance ; Generous storage

Screen isn't as good as iPad Air 2

Combine that with decent performance and excellent battery life, and it looks as if Apple has done it again. The new iPad (2017) may not be the iPad Air 3 we were all expecting and waiting for, but it’s the tablet you should buy if you don’t want to...

Apple iPad (2017) Review: In Depth

 

Apple iPad (2017) review: The 2017 iPad has had a low key launch. However, despite the lack of a big Apple launch event, the 2017 iPad is a bit of a gem.

Respectable battery life ; Sturdy and lightweight ; Beautiful design ; Affordable*

Screen could be less reflecive ; No expandable memory ; No 'raise to wake'

It’s hard not to compare this fifth-generation iPad to the tablets that came before it as it’s essentially a hodgepodge of hardware and components Apple already had lying around with the latest iOS software slapped on top. But a Frankenstein’s monster...
