Choosing an iPad is more complicated than it needs to be, but we’re here to help with our complete guide to all of Apple’s tablets.

Most people considering an iPad Pro (9/10, WIRED Recommends) should really get the iPad Air, as it offers almost all the goods for a much lower price. Still, there are some reasons to go Pro. Take size, for example. The 12.9-inch iPad Pro is like a magazine; it’s wonderfully large for drawing with the Apple Pencil (a separate purchase). The Pencil is like the one on the new iPad Airit magnetically sticks to the edge of the iPad Pro and wirelessly charges. This slate is also the only iPad with Face ID if you really want the convenience of hands-free authentication, plus it has ProMotion, which offers a 120-Hz screen refresh rate for smoother scrolling and a more fluid software experience.
The 2020 Pro is still one of the most powerful iPads you can get. It has more speakers for better sound quality, more microphones to pick up your voice clearer, more base storage, and the main camera is joined by an ultrawide lens for snapping sweeping scenes, like on the iPhone 12. There’s also a lidar sensorthe kind used to measure depth for self-driving cars. It’s used to improve augmented reality features, though there’s a good chance you barely use AR apps. Like the Air, it’s compatible with the Magic Keyboard and the Smart Keyboard.
