The iPad is where the tablet craze all started, with Apple popularising the portable, touchscreen machines. These days the famous iPad brand comes in a number of different looks, sizes, and configurations that might suit you, but which should you choose? We at Techscheme have had a good old look to help you decide, remember, we can offer you savings of up to 12% on Nation Insurance contribution on every product you buy with us.

iPad Pro 12.9-inch

The 12.9-inch iPad Pro is the big daddy of the iPad clan, the large, and crisp screen is perfect for getting work done, you may even find it a pretty suitable back-up to your laptop. That’s pretty much what it’s designed for, it’s a little large for one-handed use but in terms of power, there’s nary a tablet that can match it.

The A9X chip with embedded M9 motion coprocessor makes this an absolute beast on the tablet market. Super quick and powerful, there’s no tablet task that this won’t handle, and it’ll manage a lot of the stuff your laptop might. It’s great for artists, it’s great for tablet gamers, it’s great for anyone who wants, or needs a tablet that can do just a little bit more, while still being more portable than your average laptop.

iPad Pro 12.9-inch RRP Savings Techscheme Price

iPad Pro 9.7-inch

There’s a smaller version of the iPad Pro, and while it’s pretty similar to its namesake there are a few subtle differences. Firstly, it’s smaller and lighter, which makes it a bit better for carrying around, it’s also available in Rose Gold which the larger model isn’t. There’s also the matter of the display which is ever so slightly better here, although you’d need to be a real aficionado to notice.

In terms of their insides, the two devices are pretty much identical. The 9.7-inch has a bit more battery life, but the 12.9-inch charges faster. You’ll also find that the 9.7-inch iPad Pro has slightly better cameras, which makes sense for a more easily portable machine. Ultimately, the smaller iPad Pro is for people who want everything the Pro brand offers, just in a smaller package.

iPad Air 2


Now for the iPad Air 2, the slightly older 9.7-inch Apple tablet. It’s still and impressive machine, even if it can’t quite match up the iPad Pro. You’d expect that of course, but in terms of design it’s just as slick looking as Apple ever have been, it’s light for its size and its display is still impressive.

The A8x chip with embedded motion coprocessor may be less powerful, but it can still handle multiple open tabs, games and even drawing easily. Essentially, this tablet is for people who don’t need their iPad to have all the latest bells and whistles and want to save a bit of money at the same time.

iPad Mini 4


Lastly, we’ll talk about the baby of the group; the iPad Mini 4 is the smallest and lightest of the iPad bunch. Sitting at just 7.9-inches it offers something a little different to the other iPads out there, seriously easy portability. The Mini 4 is the easiest to just pick up and go with, and while that might mean sacrificing a little power, it’s worth it.

The processor is half a step behind the iPad Air 2, so there’s not a lot of difference between them. It works great for messing around with, as well as working on documents when on the go. It’s the iPad of convenience, perfect for the person who needs their tablet to be always available and easily usable while saving a few pennies.
