If you’re looking to buy a new iPad in 2019, you’ve got your work cut out for you: Apple has done its best to confuse its newest lineup of tablets, and there are plenty of older models with similar – if not identical – names.

There’s the iPad Pro range, high-end power tablets with all the power of a computer, smaller models like the iPad Air and iPad mini with different sizes and levels of power, and the main iPad line.

These slates run on iOS 12, although they’ll all soon see a boost when iPadOS lands in a few months, so if you have an iPhone you’ll be familiar with the way they run, but since iOS works so well on tablets you’ll find all the iPads easy to use however much experience you have with tech.

So if you’re an expert tablet fan looking for a new high-powered slate, or a new prospective tech owner looking for your first iPad, our list of the best iPads will help you find the best gadget for your budget and needs.
