New iPad review

 

Cheaper and better than an Air 2

Cheaper price ; Beautiful 9.7-inch screen ; Easy to hold design

Thicker than the Air ; Only A9 chipset ; No 256GB version

The new iPad may not be the most innovative product Apple has ever created, but it's an upgrade on the iPad Air 2 and the new version makes for a fantastic option at an even lower price than iPads of years past.

Apple iPad 3G review

 

Now out in the UK, we look at the iPad Wi-Fi + 3G - is it worth the extra cash?

Great user interface ; Fantastic app experience ; Great screen ; HD video looks brilliant

Not convinced about the keyboard ; It's pricey ; Tariffs not cheap either

Apple iPad review

 

There are two ways I could write this Apple iPad review: the pessimistic way or the optimistic way. For a device that has polarised the gadget community as to whether it is the "second coming" or merely "sucks", the thing that both approaches have in...

Watch movies, play games, read books, great screen

Will cost you to fill it with useful stuff, can't multitask yet, limited to what Apple offers you

So what's the score, what's the rub, and should you buy it?

Apple's new iPad isn't revolutionary, inventive or, well, new. But for most people it's the tablet you should buy.

The iPad can be both delightful and frustrating to use at the same time.

Apple iPad 3G review

 

Apple has set the iPad free with 3G data and GPS. But is it built for life on the road?

Status symbol tech that’s bigger, smarter and faster than the iPhone – but certainly not more practical

Apple iPad Wi-Fi review

 

Waiting a few weeks for the UK launch of the iPad wasn't an option. Here's our hands-on with the first oversized iPod Touch to hit US shelves

Dizzying, dazzling and debonair, Apple’s must-have iPad is simply the best gadget you don’t really need
