iPad (9th generation) review: Basically the same but still the best

Another year of modest improvements, but at this price there's no competition.

Apple iPad (9th generation)
  • Expert Rating

    4.00 / 5


  • Double the storage of last year
  • 12MP ultrawide front camera
  • Affordable price


  • Tired old design
  • Still keeping that first-gen Apple Pencil alive

Bottom Line

It's past time for Apple to make more sweeping improvements to entry-level iPad, but the strong software ecosystem makes this the tablet to beat at this price.

Would you buy this?
