The first thing you have to know is that it is an iPad model has arrived to replace the 9th generation iPadIn other words, it is an evolution of the most basic and economic model that Apple sells. For a long time this model has also been known as the “student iPad” since in the famous quality / price ratio, it was one of the best equipment sold by the Cupertino company.
Well, after using it for a while I can affirm that, of course, this 10th generation iPad it is the best iPad a student can buy To this day, since both its price, which it is true that it has increased, and its features, make it a really balanced device that this type of user can get much more out of than before.
Strengths of the iPad 10
The first thing to note, although it really is the least important, is the change of design, since finally, the most basic iPad also has an all-screen front, just like the rest of the models. However, the most important thing is in the Replacing the Lightning port with USB-C. That is where Apple makes the difference, making this device much more usable by different users, since with a USB-C port, the possibilities when connecting different gadgets are infinitely greater.
And if we talk about gadgets, another move that Apple should applaud is the launch of the Magic Keyboard Folio. It is true that it would have been much better to make this iPad compatible with the Magic Keyboard, however, the fact that these users can use a keyboard with a trackpad makes the experience of using an iPad “like a computer” much more satisfying. and comfortable than before.
Weak points of the iPad 10
We do not stop talking about accessories for this iPad, and it is that although it is true that I consider the Magic Keyboard Folio a success, it must also be said that the fact Apple Pencil that the buyers of this equipment have to use is the 1st generation is a great missed opportunity by the Cupertino company, for various reasons.
First of all, in order to charge the Apple Pencil, users will have to use an adapter and a cable, something really inconvenient, especially considering that this equipment is for regular use on the go. In addition, it cannot be magnetically attached to any part of the iPad either, so when it comes to transporting it it is much more uncomfortable.
Finally, among the negative points, we must mention the price. I personally believe that due to the increase in features of this iPad, the price increase may be justified. However, it is once again a missed opportunity for Apple, not having maintained the price of the 9th generation iPad on this device, or failing that, having increased it slightly, since in that case, Cupertino would have sold this iPad as Churros.
