Compared: 2020 iPad versus 2019 iPad and 2018 iPad
Apple launched the eighth-generation 10.2-inch iPad on Tuesday, alongside a refresh of the iPad Air, but is it enough of an update to make owners of earlier iPad models upgrade? We compare the specifications.
During Tuesday’s “Time Flies” event, the vast majority of attention focused on the iPad Air 4, the Apple Watch Series 6, and the Apple Watch SE, as well as Apple’s updated services offering. Apple did take some time to mention that it was updating the base iPad, chiefly by giving it better performance.However, beyond the speed boost, there didn’t seem to be that much of a change for the model, at least compared to what was announced for the iPad Air. Owners of previous iPad models may question whether it is good enough to upgrade to, or whether they should turn their attention elsewhere.
