How to choose the best iPad for college


This is one of the decisions that we have to make on occasion and that is quite complicated to answer for several reasons. First and foremost, an iPad for college can be quite easy to choose depending on a few factors. Always economic factor must be taken into account. and this is for many of us the main problem when choosing an iPad or another.

There is no doubt that if you have money you can choose the iPad you want, regardless of the needs or power demand you need, better or worse screen, greater or lesser capacity, etc. In any case, today we are going to see some of the main factors that can determine us towards the purchase of a specific iPad model for the university.

From the start we have to say that all the iPad models that the Cupertino company has in its catalog can be useful for university, we should not close any doors on these iPad models since everyone has enough ability to be useful in college assignments and out of them. The best thing about the iPad is that it is a very versatile device and offers all users features, design, power and quality.

The model to choose must have a minimum screen

Possibly many of you may think that the iPad mini is a good candidate for university, this iPad has a really good value for money but despite having support for keyboards not the best screen that we say to see documents or files in it. This iPad has many positive points compared to its larger brothers, but for university tasks we should discourage its purchase.

It is true that the latest generation model of this iPad mini has really good processor power and screen quality but as we say it is still a somewhat fair size depending on what tasks are going to be carried out with it.

Be that as it may, if you are one of those who is in love with this size of iPad for its portability and power options We recommend the latest model of iPad mini. In this case we gain a little more screen thanks to the elimination of the frames and the design more similar to the larger iPad. Keep in mind that for the price of an iPad mini we can have a 10,2-inch iPad, which is the next one we are going to see.

The 10,2-inch iPad could be a good candidate

The Cupertino company itself sells it as the straight up iPad for college days that offers loads of features that make it an ideal iPad for college kids. This iPad has the 13 Bionic chip and will not fall short in any of the tasks that we want to use it. Besides, his 10,2-inch screen is really perfect for college kids who don't want to have an iPad that's too small or too big.

Powerful, versatile and very simple to use. The new iPad is designed so you can enjoy what you love like never before. Work, play, create, learn, communicate and a thousand other things. All for less than you imagine.

Clearly the strong point of this iPad is its price. The design offered by this iPad is for many old but more than enough to take it to the university and get us out of any trouble outside of it, without a doubt this is for many of us the best iPad that we can buy when it comes to going to college or enjoy it at home. This iPad model can be obtained on the Apple website for €379, but if you are a university student, remember that you have a discount so it can be really cheap.

iPad Air can be a very good option

Another of the star iPad of the Cupertino company is the iPad Air. This iPad offers the user a radical design change compared to the 10,2-inch model previously mentioned in this article, we can say that the design of the iPad Air launched by Apple is one of the most beautiful and functional.

In addition, the new iPad Air offers the user the option of using Touch ID and not Face ID, this is positive for many users and negative for many others. In any case, the current iPad Air could be a great alternative for users who are thinking of taking an iPad with them to college.

On this iPad model the price already rises to 649 euros in its version of 64 GB of internal storage. This price, which is not excessively expensive, could be lowered with the offers for university students and you can also add Apple's Magic Keyboard, which undoubtedly offers greater productivity to the team. If you also want to add the Apple Pencil, you really have a complete kit, that is at a somewhat higher price than the iPad Air alone costs.

The iPad Pro and all other iPad models

On the other hand and to finish with this recommendation of the possible candidates for all those university students who want an iPad, we cannot leave aside the company's Pro models. The entire range of iPads are really interesting for college and outside of college, but of course if we consider the iPad Pro as a purchase option, they can also be very useful.

Obviously here the price factor fully enters and it is that these iPads are the most expensive models that the Cupertino company has in its catalog, so all of them are good candidates as long as the pocket allows it. Like the other iPad models we can use the Magic Keyboard, Apple Pencil, and other accessories from the iPad range but in this case we also have the option of choosing the largest model with a 12,9-inch screen, with M1 chips and a Liquid Retina screen.

In this case, the iPad Pro starts at €879 in the most basic pro model with 128 GB of storage space. As with the rest of the equipment and you have the university card you will have discounts on them but of course, in this case it is not as profitable as in the rest of the iPad devices in the range.
