As in a number of categories, the best iPads have long been market leaders in the tablet space, and with good reason. Not only are they reliable (they enjoy a closed hardware ecosystem in much the same way as Apple’s contenders for best laptop and best desktop) but their sleek, trademark industrial design is also evident in this halfway point between smartphones and laptops.
Tablets are a perfect compromise for those moments when you don’t want to lug around a full-sized laptop (or any of the attendant bulky accessories) but want a bigger surface to read books, browse the web, or watch films than a tiny smartphone. I can personally attest that they’re fantastic for reading comics on the go—combine the crisp display of one of these iPads with a comic subscription service, and you’ve got an amazing way to read access thousands of comics everywhere you go. This is especially evident in our top pic, the 2020 11-inch iPad Pro at Amazon, which combines a big, crisp screen with a powerful processor and a suite of handy features. It’s the perfect hybrid, and easily tops our list of the best iPads.
