A Quick Overview of Apple iPad 2018 Features

Here is where the tale starts. Do you face difficulties when working on iPad Pro? Don’t worry as Apple Pencil has got you covered. However, you must pay 33% of the total price to get this feature.

Talking about its exterior, it is not as exciting as we were expecting. The iPad 2018 is loaded with same measurements and weights just like iPad Pro. As far as display is concerned, you will see a gorgeous 9.7-inches OLED 1536 x 2048 pixels resolution display.

Frankly, don’t expect something special in terms of hardware. The new iPad 2018 runs an Apple A10 Fusion processor and backed by 128GB/32GB onboard storage tier. As you know Apple doesn’t allow users to expand onboard memory just like iPhones.

Looking for something special? Apple has enabled collaboration and updated the core apps. Students will get up to 200GB of free iCloud storage which is definitely an excellent upgrade. Isn’t it?

Moving towards its power, the battery only dips up to 39% after playing games, browsing and YouTube continuously 5 hours. It will last you almost 3 to 4 years if you only use it for a few hours in a day. Standby time is impressive too. The battery drains only 6% if you put it in standby mode for a week.

The Good

The entry-level iPad 2018 is well-loaded with an Apple Pencil enables you to do art work and annotation and adds a faster A10 processor. As always, Apple continues to bring the best overall selection of free and paid apps on budget tablets.

The Bad

The overall performance of Apple iPad 2018 is exquisite but lacks a “wow” factor. The iPad 2018 also lacks the bigger, better screen, quad speakers and Smart Connector found on pricier iPad Pros. Moreover, a keyboard, case, Pencil, and add-ons will bring its price up to almost a laptop level.

Colour Options

The iPad 2018 comes with same colour options as you did for the 2017 model. The color choices include Silver, Gold and Space Grey. As we saw with an iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, the gold color has now turned into a Rosy ground and has a separate Pink blush on it.

Should You Buy it?

Perhaps yes. If you are looking for a large-screen display device for play or work, Apple iPad 2018 is an absolute choice.
