The standard iPad has retained the same revolutionary design since its debut in 2012, with a few notable tweaks and improvements. Today, the iPad continues to give consumers a great balance between processing power and portability.
The 10.2” iPad runs on the A12 Bionic chip with Neural Engine, which helps boost multitasking capabilities without putting additional strain on the battery. When paired with Apple’s Smart Keyboard, the iPad can manage tasks with the same processing power and functionality as many notebook computers. The fingerprint-resistant touch screen and 2160-by-1620 resolution also give the iPad a leg up over most other comparable tablets.

The standard 10.2” iPad can be customized in both its hardware and storage capabilities. Models come with either WiFi or WiFi + cellular data functionality, as well as options for either 32 GB or 128 GB of local storage space. Combined with the 8MP wide camera, this makes the iPad the perfect device to create, store, and manage photos and videos.
At its core, the iPad is designed to be as capable as a desktop computer, but with greater mobility and versatility. Weighing in at just over 1 pound, the iPad is extremely light and easy to store in a small bag or briefcase. In addition, the iPad can handle up to 10 hours of web surfing or video streaming on a single charge, allowing users to use the device at virtually any time — even when they’re away from a power source.
