Apple iPad 9.7-inch 2018 Best One’s for Your Kids
Apple is known as the smartest brand in the market due to its much anticipated products. From smart TVs to iPhones to tablets, it has always created hype among the masses. The Apple iPad pro has already done wonders and with constant updates, the iPad experience gets better. You may consider Apple’s newest iPad a perfect fit to the educational needs of advanced learners. With constant updates Apple keeps on introducing, your teen may be able to carry it to his college years (unless it never gets dropped without a safety case).
Calling 9.7-inch iPad affordable may sound ambiguous but that’s what it is. A low price comes at the cost of certain compromises and you may expect the same with the new iPad. We recommend it to those who actually love the idea of stylus.
A perfect learning tool for older kids
This is not an iPad for younger kids but it is introduced for the older kids or advanced learners. If you are looking for an iPad for toddlers, you should look somewhere else. It comes with extreme versatile features which the whole family can enjoy. For kids, there comes various kid-proofing options to feed your child with the relevant learning stuff. The App Store is always there to provide your kids lots of educational apps and other learning material. Download the app of your specific interest and dive into the ocean of knowledge. Besides Apple being constant to its proprietary Operating System, you can download Microsoft Office from the App store.
Speed & Stylus
The question arises about the major difference between 9.7 inch iPad and its predecessor. The answer lies in its speed and availability of stylus. Although there are no giant design upgrades in this Apple’s iPad but there is an option of using pressure-sensitive pencil. It would be a great addition for those who love doing art work. It draws accurate angles and provide excellent digital sketching. But the Pencil support is not at all necessary, you can always use your fingers instead. Keeping in mind the additional expenses, many iPad users do not consider purchasing stylus.
9.7 inch iPad provides deep parental controls. In the iPad’s settings, you can put limit to the browsing or you are always able to put lock on any app. Also you can install various parental control software for better kids proofing.
The iPad’s screen is not laminated like other Apple’s products. It lacks in providing the touching sense as that with laminated screen. The idea of having a stylus with your iPad becomes absurd once the stylus is lost. There is this possibility as the iPad does not come with any support to keep the pencil safe.
The stylus tip can be lost easily. One way to keep it secure is through the purchase of iPad case that has a pencil holder as well. Extra expenses just to keep stylus safe and to protect the screen from any disaster. A good iPad case comes with a durable screen protector which you may buy to guard yourself from serious repair expenses later.
Talking about the speed performance, it is GREAT. The apps load extremely fast, games run rapidly and the interface response is beyond perfection. For the battery life, Apple claims to provide an average 12 hours battery life after constant browsing. With this iPad, you will be having 32 GB storage and you can buy an additional 128 GB storage anytime.
To make iPad easy to handle, the screen is surrounded by bezels so you may hold the screen with one hand. Like other Apple’s products, there is located a home button below the screen which is used as fingerprint scanner. You can choose the tablet in peach tone, silver or space grey colors. The color scheme is interesting though.
Thankfully, iPad has not given up the support of headphone jack. Also you get the Bluetooth 4.2 availability. The 8Mp rear camera is enough for tablet photography.
The 9.7-inch iPad is not the cheapest in the market (the price is nearly closer to a mini laptop) but you are getting lots of enough tablet features at this price. It is not a perfect iPad for kids but it provides a memorable browsing experience at an affordable price.
