There’s a huge variety of Apple iPads to pick from, and not all stores make it clear which model is the latest — not only plenty of different models, but also plenty of different generations.
There are four different models of the iPad currently available: the straight-up iPad, the iPad Mini, the iPad Air, and the iPad Pro. Among the four of them, there are several different generations.
The standard iPad is in its 7th generation, and latest model came out in September 2019.
It boasts a 10.2-inch touchscreen, an A10 Fusion processor and an embedded M10 co-processor, as well as 32GB of storage space on the basic model. It’s certainly enough to get you through your basic needs, though you may want to upgrade to a bit more storage space if you’re planning on using the iPad to download a lot of videos, store many pictures, or play a lot of games.
At Apple’s $329 price, this is the cheapest current iPad you can buy (except the 9.7-inch model from 2018 if you can find it on sale).
Like the most recent iPad Mini, the most recent iPad also offers first-generation Apple Pencil compatibility. Unfortunately, it doesn’t support mouse input. Finally, it’s often available on sale for as low as $249.99.
