The 10.9-inch iPad remains one of the best iPads for someone on a budget.

A “little powerhouse”, the Apple iPad Mini is ideal if you need a more portable iPad. It has a smaller 8.3-inch screen but that makes it the perfect middle ground between your phone and a laptop. Performance is pretty good from the A15 Bionic processor which is the same as the one on the iPhone 13. There’s support for the Apple Pencil too making it an ideal tablet for sketching out designs or taking notes. If you want a smaller tablet, this is perfect. Previous iPad Minis weren’t so great performance wise and had a smaller display, but the 6th generation model fixes that.

Apple iPad Air (5th Gen) 256GB Wi-Fi — $650, was $749

Offering incredible value, the iPad Air is a great option if you don’t want to splurge on the iPad Pro but you still want plenty of power. While the screen isn’t quite as good as the iPad Pro, everything else about it is high-end including its M1 processor. Thanks to plenty of accessory compatibility, it’s a good bet for when you need to be more productive, but is great for relaxing, too. All-day battery life keeps you going into the late hours without a charge.

Apple iPad Pro M2 11-inch — $849, was $899

The 11-inch XDR display is one of the most impressive features of the iPad Pro lineup, as it can reach 1,600 nits of brightness and provide a crystal clear image, wide color gamut, and support for HDR photos and video.
