iPad is getting to be good value.
I upgraded to the 6th Generation iPad almost purely for the ability to use the Apple Pencil, and I’m glad I did. Writing on the iPad is very natural and, with the right app, searching handwritten notes is easy. It’s a bit disappointing that there is no handwriting-to-text conversion built-in; there are apps that can do it, but I have found them to be be disappointing so far.
In general use, the new iPad is smooth as butter; nice smooth scrolling, quick to load most apps, etc.
I spent a lot of time researching if it was worth paying extra ...money for the iPad Pro, but I don’t think it would have been worth it for my purposes. Maybe for the more creative (e.g. arty types) or those who genuinely need a larger screen, but for general work and personal use, the iPad 6th generation is ideal and good value. I did pay a bit extra for extra RAM though; I store a lot of photos and like to have movies on the device for long flights. I have given 4 stars, because to get the best use of this latest iPad, you need the Apple Pencil, which is rather expensive. Also Apple has a very limited selection of covers for this iPad (precisely one in the Apple Store). Note that, if you can provide evidence that you are purchasing for a student (e.g. student card), you can get a discount on the iPad and Pencil.
Affordable and powerful
I really loved this new iPad that I end up buying two. I only buy the WIFI version since I don't really use it out, even if I do I'll just my phine's data as personal hotspot to use the internet. This iPad is fast and easy to use, the touchscreen feels smooth when using. It has Apple Pencil support as well. The price is affordable starting from $469. It is like mini laptop
Questions & Answers
I transferred everything from my old ipad to the new 6th generation wi fi 128 but the facebook messenger will not work any suggestions?
what storage does the iPad have apart from 128 GB
We have 2 new IPad 6th generation iPads. My son set them both up, he used the same email and passwords for both. Question: how can we separate our pictures, when we take pictures they end up on both iPads! Is there a way to go into settings and separate our pictures?? The last set of iPads we had, used same passwords and email which is fine, but our pictures were completely separate. How can I separate our pics on the new set of iPads?
Hi Cindi, all you need to do is on each Ipad, go to Setting > Scroll down to 'Photos' > Disable iCloud photos and Disable my Photo Stream. Any photo you take on each of the iPad will remain stored in that iPad and email and passwords would remain same. Hope that helped.
