The ninth-generation Apple iPad isn't the latest version of Apple's entry-level tablet -- that's the 10th-generation Apple iPad -- but the device remains on our list of the best iPads as the top choice for those who are on a budget. That's because the ninth-generation Apple iPad still offers great performance by today's standards despite the affordable price tag, as it's powered by the A13 Bionic chip that was launched with the iPhone 11 series.
