Compare Every iPad Model Ever Made

From today's models to the earliest iPad incarnations

Apple's iPad is an incredibly popular device, letting users stream movies, surf the internet, conduct business, and much more. If you're in the market for an iPad, you have an array of options. Newer models are available from the Apple Store, but you may decide that an older model would be less expensive and a good fit for your needs.

To make the right iPad-buying decision, it's important to consider each model's features as well as their prices. Here's a quick-reference guide to all iPad models so you can compare them and find the iPad that best suits your family.

The iPad made its debut in April of 2010, costing $499, boasting a mere 1,024x768 resolution, and offering only up to 64GB of internal storage.

The Main Features of the iPad

When you're trying to understand the iPad's different models and prices, there are four main things to consider: size, networking, accessories, and storage.

Size

Various iPad models have come in an assortment of screen sizes through the years: 7.9, 9.7, 10.2, 10.5, 11, and 12.9 inches. Not all screen sizes are created equally, however. Some use better, and often more expensive, technology.

Networking

All iPad models offer Wi-Fi for networking, but there are also versions of both the iPad and iPad mini that offer Wi-Fi + Cellular, with data plans from carriers such as AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon.

Accessories

The iPad Pro models support the latest versions of the Apple Pencil and Apple's Smart Keyboard accessories. The Smart Keyboard helps make the iPad a viable laptop replacement for many, while the Apple Pencil is terrific for artists and note-taking. Other iPad models support older versions of these accessories.

Storage

Top-end iPad Pro models offer 64GB, 256GB, 512GB, or even 1TB of storage, while earlier models are limited to 32GB and 128GB. It's always a good rule of thumb to buy as much storage as you can afford.
