Cant fault Apple again

Love this device. It complements my IPhone beautifully and integrates and streams everything between both devices. Its been a great tool to travel and work with and the price point is great. Its a simple gadget which I can't live without in my everyday life. It has a great battery life and lasts easily all day for me. It takes amazing photos and facetime is a breeze with such a portable device. Would definitely recommend.

Mixed Thoughts

I bought an ipad 6th edition for university, but found a majority of apps were unavailable or displayed incorrectly and formatting between a laptop and ipad to be very difficult despite having the same programs and sharing accounts. The display is better and the ipad its self is smaller with few good features but overall shouldve looked into other products

Nice and light though the wifi has stopped working

I like the feel of the apple iPad. While I have an iPhone 6s PLUS and barely use my iPad .The wifi has stoped working and is not good so I am in the process of fixing that with apple store let's see if they fix it for me or provide a new one.

Personally I like my iPad. It does the job and keeps my nieces entertained.

Like i said, personally I like my iPad. It does the job and keeps my nieces entertained when they visit, It’s also good for streaming movies that my wife doesn’t want to watch whilst in bed. We did have an Asus tablet once but iPads are just way easier to use than android tablets (well for me anyway).

It works well for me, though feels less "sturdy" that my previous Ipad models

I always choose Apple products as I find their interface nice, clean and easy to use. This was the case for this Ipad and some of the positives of this model. I have had a few freezing issues, but no more really than my other ipad. I think it's more to do with me using it a lot and having a lot open as opposed to this model. It does feel less sturdy than my previous models and seems to damage more easy though.

Fantastic price and great quality

Love the price of the 5th gen iPad, if you're not worried about having the newest gadget it's defintely the est deal. iPads are always simple to use, have long battery life that always last all day and they last for years. Will definitely buy again in several years when I need to.

Take it with me when i travel

Got the 128 Gig model, and still want more space to save movies and music for when i travel, good on a plane with headphones. I also got the pencil but it doesnt make me any better at drawing then i was before. Unless you have a need for the pencil dont bother.

Would reccommend!!!

I Bought this new iPad when I upgraded my mobile phone plan and thought i would purchase a new ipad, i previously had an ipad mini and the new ipad is so much beter and easier to navigate too.

Siri’s voice recognition makes thing easier, and bluetooth works well in the car.

would Highly recommend.

Great for kids

Purchased for child to use at school, found it great but always over data.
Screen also cracked way to easy, seems to be more of a sometimes item rather then each day use for school.
Battery life was great but every day seems to die more easier then it did when first brought

Enjoying new ipad

I felt it is the best tablet platform in an affordable price coz i used discounted jb hifi gift card bought from woolies. It is fast and reliable. It has very long battery-life runs whole day. This 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.

Love my iPad.

I purchased this on a whim, not sure when or how I would use it. Now I can’t live without it! I take it to uni instead of a laptop and it’s light and easy to use. I do wish more apps had specific iPad apps, but the workaround is fine. I like iOS as it’s simple & having apple stores around when something happens makes life way easier.

I got this new iPad when I upgraded my mobile phone and plan, the new features and the faster iOS is great on the 5th gen iPad, I upgraded from an iPad 2 which is about 6 or so years old now so was considerably slower.

Love Siri’s voice recognition, connected the iPad up to a Bluetooth keyboard and take it with me for working on the go.

Highly recommend.

It is perfect.

This iPad is perfect for me as I share it with my siblings. The battery life is amazing and the storage is decent. It's easy to download apps and other necessities. It can be used for both work and entertainment, which is extremely useful for me. My younger brother uses it for YouTube and games.

Everyone should have one !

I use the iPad for my business, apps, music and YouTube. My daughter also uses it for YouTube videos. The only thing I wish was the battery charger quicker and has been hard to find a good shock proof cover... Other then that I’m pretty happy with storage and usage.

Life changing

Great device which is very portable in size. The Ipad has good storage and easy connection to wifi. Easy to down load apps, music and movies. Simple to use for any level of technology abilities. Plenty of accessories that can be purchased from most retailers. Great buy, worth the money.

I live Apple

Ive had cheap tablets. But this time round I decided to buy a decent tablet.
What can I say I love apple. The graphics are amazing. Camera is so clear. The device is fast unlike a cheaper tablet that I bought last year. I will continue to buy apple.
Defiantly worth the extra $$

Use it every day - Beautiful screen

My kids gave me this and I love it! I use it mostly for watching Netflix and Youtubes these days but also emails and newspapers too. The Apple screen is just head and shoulders clearer and crisper than any others I have seen and it has a surprisingly good camera too, although I feel a bit strange holding the whole iPad up just to take a photo. Great chromecast TV chooser, great photo browser. Just love it!
