iPad 8 (10.2-inch, 2020) Review | Trusted Reviews

 

iPad 8 (2020) 1.2-inch review: Apple's cheapest iPad is also its most popular, and with the iPad 8 it's not hard to see why.

Nice speed improvements;Still feels great to use;Supports Pencil and Keyboard

32GB storage is stingy;Design could do with a refresh;Screen is very reflective

New iPad 10.2 (2020) review

 

Apple's new iPad doesn't bring anything radically new to the tablet space, but it offers some upgrades for the same price as last year's model.

Excellent value Strong performance 20W charger included

Very little change Only 1.2MP selfie camera 32GB of storage is pitiful

The new iPad 2020 is great value for a brand-new iPad, even if it is only a modest upgrade over last year's version. It comes with a faster chipset and a 20W fast charger in the box, which join prior-year features like Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard...

Apple iPad (8th Gen) review: The new normal

 

More than a decade after the original iPad launched, the now entry-level tablet is in its 8th Gen form for 2020. Is it the slate to snag?

Affordable price point ; Apple Pencil support (1st Gen) ; Smart Connector means support for keyboard and accessories ; Ideal performance for media consumption and apps

Bezels are a bit chunky ; No FaceID ; Not an anti-reflective screen ; No True Tone screen technology

It lacks some of the speed and design points of the higher-end models, but that's why this is the perfect iPad option for many – as there's still no better entry-level tablet around.

Apple iPad 8th generation (2020) review

 

iPad gets an A12 chip – and dozen that change everything?

The A12 is a powerhouse at this price-point ; The screen is big and bright ; App ambition Android can only dream of ; Strong accessories ecosystem

Reflective screen and no True Tone ; Entry level 32GB storage is miserly ; Dated bezel-heavy design ; Speaker positioning remains irksome

There’s only one major change over last year’s iPad, but it’s one that really matters: the A12 ensures this iPad will last.

iPad 10.2in (2020)

 

The entry-level iPad has always been a tempting option for budget-savvy consumers, and that's truer than ever with the 8th-gen iPad and its upgraded A12 Bionic chipset.

Apple iPad (2020) and iPadOS 14 review

 

While earlier iPadOS releases laid the groundwork to make Apple's tablets more capable, iPadOS 14 is mostly concerned with design and polish. That's not a bad thing: Some redesigned apps are easier to use because they function more like their desktop...

It’s cheap! ; Improved performance ; Battery life is still great ; Includes a fast new charger

Base model only has 32GB of storage ; Front-facing camera isn’t great

Apple iPad (2020) review: The tablet you buy as an appliance

 

When people go online or walk into a store and say 'I would like to buy an iPad today,' this is what they get. And they will be extremely happy with it.

Exceptional software with long support ; Great battery life ; Colorful and clear display ; Connects to robust Apple ecosystem

32GB of base storage isn't enough ; Single tinny speaker ; Still Lightning, not USB-C
