Apple's 8th-gen iPad for 2020 continues to be one of the best deals in tech: a stupendous tablet for less than $500. But there are things that grate: the lack of multi user, the low base storage, and no USB-C. In this review, Dieter Bohn looks at the very good and increasingly annoying aspects of the new iPad.

  • I just bought one of these! I love it! It is a huge upgrade from the tablet that I had before, which was powered by Android. It was extremely slow. This IPad is nice and fast. I don’t care about games or the multi user thing since I am the only one who uses my IPad. However, you make some good points. The price played a huge part in me getting this device. This IPad was in my budget. Sure, IPad Air and IPad Pro are nicer devices, but I couldn’t afford their price tag. Still, this is an IPad. Apple makes the best phones, computers and tablets. I’m sure that you will agree! Apple rules! Peace.

  • If this has a laminated display and 64GB this would be almost perfect.

  • 2:10 To be fair if you buy this for your kids; they can probably share it and 32GB should be enough for both of them to have separate games as they are probably not saving any 4k video or professional apps.

  • The Funny thing abt this iPad is that its 329 and 309 for Education but.... It has A12 Bionic, 3 Colors, 8MP camera, All Day Battery, iOS, Apple Pencil 1st gen ( which is crappy-) and Smart Keyboard which is great for schools, Apple Pencil make it better to animate, Draw and Control Your iPad. Smart Keyboard is a great product to buy if you want to play computer games but with no keyboard. It's also highly PRAISED for the mere and small price. Smart key is 159 and apple pencil is just 99. The iPad is so great and it has a 10.2 INCH which is very subtle for an iPad.

  • You are SO on target regarding multiuser. I'm not a big Apple fan BUT the iPad is a decent device especially with garage band, so we have a couple in our home. I just don't get why this isn't multiuser, especially when I use this for my daughter's music, it would be nice to have 1 iPad in the practice area that multiple musicians can easily access. Obviously there thinking is if they make it multiuser that means less sales.

  • I find the iPad 8th Gen very good we pay 1200 NZ dollars for ours with 128 gig and 4g connection case Bluetooth mouse and keyboard but for me it’s portability cloud connection and you in the apple universe for cheap . IOS 14 runs well . It definitely replaces my laptop . I don’t edit videos but I do work and type on it , watch movies and listen to podcasts read books so I get a lot of use from a basic price product. I don’t know if my family would have shared them well anyway .

  • People do realize the only reason the 7th gen & 8th gen screens are bigger are because there using ipad pro 2nd gen front frames? Hence the gap cause its a different display.

  • Great recommendation, wait for a product that is twice as expensive, or 200 bucks more at least but with half the storage (64gb on the air). This base one is fine for people who just want something that works.
