48 hours with the new iPad (2018): our first impressions

When we first heard about the new iPad from Apple, we expected it to be a much cheaper device that would appeal to scholastic equipment buyers.

What we got was a device that’s identical in looks to last year’s cheapest iPad, but with some key upgrades. Apple Pencil support and the newer A10 Fusion chipset are the headline features, as well as a maintained price point in most places (although it’s a touch cheaper in the UK).
