Last month, Apple revealed and launched the 8th-generation iPad. You might have forgotten; it was overshadowed by a radically redesigned iPad Air, two new Apple Watches, and other announcements from the company. But nonetheless, this is likely to be one of the most popular iPads, if not the most popular in Apple's lineup because of one thing: price.
At $329 with 32GB of storage and $429 with 128GB, it's going to be ubiquitous in environments where cutting-edge features aren't called for, like point-of-sale, industrial use, and in schools. But it's also going to be a content consumption device for a wide array of consumers.
All that said, there's very little different about this year's iPad compared to the last. In fact, it all comes down to performance. So we're going to go over just that today, along with a few quick notes on how it compares to the previous model.
