The best iPad to buy in 2018 is a tricky answer for us because there are quite a few Apple tablets on sale today.
The iPad Pro is certainly the most powerful, and that comes in two sizes, the massive iPad Pro 12.9-inch version and the flagship 10.5-inch edition. But neither are the best for average consumers looking to save money.
The slightly confusingly named New iPad (2017) is a better value and the best iPad for most people because it covers all of the basics you need from an iOS 11 tablet. Finally, the aging iPad mini 4 (launched way back in 2015) is probably on its way out eventually.
