The iPad is an excellent option as an affordable tablet or even entry-level 2-in-1. It’s powerful, has a fantastic operating system, and serves solid battery life. Go for a third-party keyboard instead of Apple’s expensive Smart Keyboard, though.

This is the best tablet under $500 —but I can’t help thinking that it Apple would have made it better if there were any meaningful tablet competition in this price range. Even though the processor is getting a little long in the tooth and Apple’s Smart Keyboard is too pricey, it remains impressive t...

It's bigger and has great software, but it's no faster than before

from Engadget

Apple’s new entry-level iPad packs a new, bigger screen and a magnetic Smart Connector. It’s no faster than the model it replaces, which sometimes feels limiting, but its blend of improved software, long battery life and a great app ecosystem still mean it’s the best tablet you can buy for under $500.

The new iPad is a slightly larger version of the iPad 6 that supports the Apple Pencil and Apple Smart Keyboard. However, there have been third-party iPad keyboards on the market for years, so Smart Keyboard support is not necessarily a reason to upgrade from the iPad 6 to the iPad 7. The Smart Keyboard, while being well-made, is also extremely expensive for a detachable keyboard.

This is the best tablet under $500 —but I can’t help thinking that it Apple would have made it better if there were any meaningful tablet competition in this price range. Even though the processor is getting a little long in the tooth and Apple’s Smart Keyboard is too pricey, it remains impressive that you can get a computer this good for this price. It’s not a device that I would recommend upgrading to if you have a tablet you’re even moderately happy with, but it is a device I am sure you’ll be happy with if you buy it.

By including options such as the Smart Connector and improving the screen size, Apple has made the iPad as appealing as it probably can without changing the price, and as such, as I see this as a quiet and rare push to bring people to into Apple's wider ecosystem by making an extremely attractive entry-level device. It's also a relatively affordable Apple device to buy if you'd like to take advantage of Apple's offer of a free year of Apple TV+ for buying a new Apple device.

The new cheap iPad could have felt amazing with a sleeker new design, perhaps one that replaced the iPad Air. The new cheap iPad could have been easier to use with the addition of FaceID, a feature that would have needed a beefier processor. Then again, these kinds of things would have driven up the price, which would have defeated the purpose. After all, Apple’s cheapest iPad is great, first, because it does all the things an iPad does and, second, because it’s cheap.
