88% Apple iPad 10.2 (2020) - Rejuvenation of the lower-priced Apple tablet | Notebookcheck
The new iPad and the old iPad come with very similar specifications sheets. The 2020 model has a new SoC and a smaller carbon footprint.
Apple iPad 8Th Gen Review: The Blandest Ipad Yet Is Still Compelling
Source: Tech2.in.com English
Pro tip: Don’t buy the 2020 iPad, or at least, ignore the base model. Rs 28,900 is cheap for an iPad, but 32 GB of storage will be more curse than boon. You’ll spend more time micro-managing storage than having fun. Either buy the 128 GB iPad (for Rs 37,900), or, if you don’t mind the size, opt for the Mini.

iPad 8 (10.2) Review
Source: Recombu English
The iPad 8 is a great tablet, and one that’ll do a good job at replacing an ageing iPad or Android slate. It’s not a huge upgrade over the previous though, with a faster processor the only notable addition.

There are some things that could have been better. One is the base storage. It is just 32GB. That could have been better. And two, I would have liked to see improved front and rear cameras. Apple is working with these 8-megapixel and 1.2-megapixel sensors for far too long.

The iPad (2020) is still a solid tablet, it's just not exciting in any way, especially in the face of the soon to launch but far more expensive iPad Air (2020) that brings all of the pricey iPad Pro (2020)'s best features down to a slightly lower cost.

The new iPad Pro 2020 is another impressive tablet – but so were the models from 2018. Those devices were powerful, capable and had a multitude of improvements to the technology, and the latest iPad Pro has all of that too; however, apart from a small upgrade in terms of power, new camera tech that has few uses right now, and a few new features that will be rolled out to the older models too, it doesn't feel like a massive update.

Apple'S 8Th-Gen Ipad Is Still The Best Deal In Tablets

That said, you probably don't need to plunk down the cash if you already have an iPad from the past couple of years. Apple has upgraded the new device, but the updates are so minor that only first-time buyers or those with an iPad that’s a few years old should consider upgrading.

2020 iPad 10.2" Review - The Budget Laptop KILLER!
Source: Max Tech English
The new 10.2" iPad from Apple has FINALLY received the upgrade that we've been wanting for the last two years! Yes, that's the A12 Bionic chip, which makes this iPad a much better deal than before, being able to run basically any app or game you want. Other than that, we discuss how great the Logitech Combo Touch keyboard is and how it helps the iPad become the ULTIMATE laptop replacement, especially for working from home. So in this video, I talk about all of the advantages of this iPad setup compared to budget laptops and chromebooks.

If you've never owned an iPad before, or you own an iPad from a few years back - the iPad Air 2, say, or the fifth-gen iPad from 2017 - then this is a great tablet to pick up for general use. It's light, portable, comfortably quick enough for any app you throw at it right now and affordably priced. And you still get a headphone port, which is a dying luxury these days.

If you’re either keen to upgrade an older iPad or want to get your foot into the iOS ecosystem then the iPad 8 is a great pick, especially if you’re not overly fussed about flagship features or spending big. If you want a bit more, the iPad Air 4 is far more feature-rich, however.

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 support. Best of all, the price hasn't changed year-on-year, making this the best iPad for those who don’t need Apple’s technologically best iPad.

At this point, you might be tempted by cheap Android alternatives. And certainly, there is no shortage of options there. But none come close to matching this iPad’s level of build, refinement, and performance. To match this iPad, you'd have to be prepared to cough up more for a higher-end tablet from Huawei or Samsung. And with Google just about given up on tablets, the app ecosystem for Android tablets just isn’t as robust.

The 2020 iPad is basically the same solid tablet we got last year, except it runs and charges a little faster. That may not sound thrilling (because it isn’t) but this is an extremely competent device made more flexible by design changes and Pencil improvements in iPadOS 14. If you haven't upgraded your tablet in age, or if you're buying one for the first time, we still think this is your best all-around option.

Lisa Gade reviews the 2020 refresh of the 10.2” iPad. This is the base model that starts at $329 and ships with iPadOS 14 and the Apple A12 Bionic CPU. The tablet has an IPS 2160 x 1620 display that’s compatible with Apple Pencil 1, and it’s available with optional 4G LTE. The 490g Apple tablet has a headphone jack, very good stereo speakers, and is available in silver, space gray and gold colors. Beyond a pleasing display, Pencil support and smart connector for keyboards, the appeal of Apple’s most affordable iPad is the vast ecosystem of apps.

Apple A12 Bionic GPU: Integrated graphics card offering 4 cores designed by Apple with 50% more performance than the previous generation (A11).

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


A12 Bionic: System on a Chip (SoC) from Apple that integrates a processor (six 64 Bit cores, 2 performance and 4 power saving cores). The A12 Bionic is the first 7nm SoC and offers a 15 % faster CPU performance compared to the A11 according to Apple.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


10.20":

This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

This is pretty heavy for a smartphone. Usually, small tablets weigh as much.


Apple: Apple Inc. is an American multinational corporation which designs and manufactures consumer electronics and software products. Apple software includes the Mac OS X operating system but nowadays Macbooks are also able to run Windows. Apple has at least sporadically been considered the most valuable company in the world since 2011 and has consistently ranked among the Top 10 companies in the world.

In the laptop sector, Apple's market share was 9.3% in 2014 and 10.3% in 2016. The latter corresponds to the 5th place. In the smartphone segment, Apple achieved 15.3% in the first quarter of 2016, which means a market share loss when compared to the 18.3% in same quarter of the previous year.
Nevertheless, Apple ranked second place behind Samsung in both years.

There are tons of reviews on Apple laptops, smartphones and tablets. The ratings are significantly above-average (as of 2016).


83.26%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
