It’s 2019. It’s almost 2020. But as of right now, there are students who are just starting out a new year of school and they need some technology to help them with their studies. It’s not always easy to make a decision on which device is the best, but this article will help make that decision a little easier. Let’s look at the best iPads for students in 2019.
iPad Air 3 for the budget-conscious
The iPad Air 3 is an impressive little device for students in 2019 if they are on a budget. It has some pro-level features like the Smart Keyboard and Apple Pencil. And the processing is surprisingly fast. Even with those features, it only clocks in at $500. That’s a price that many students can afford if they save up for just a bit. If parents are the ones footing the bill, that price might not bring too much resistance from them either.
The iPad Air 3 just came out in 2019, so that means it will have the latest features and latest iOS. If you don’t need pro level features like Face ID and don’t need a huge screen, the iPad Air 3 should be a serious contender. It’s a middle of the line device that is perfect for students who want affordability without losing all the features that they want and need.
While we’re on the subject of the iPad Air 3, it’s not all sunshine and roses. The camera is not the best out there, but you can get by with the Air 3 if you don’t need a camera to take pictures. Do you have a phone that takes good pictures? That will probably be good enough for you if you’re watching your budget.
iPad Pro for the not as budget-conscious
The iPad Air 3 is certainly a decent little device for college students. But are there devices out there that are better? Well, if you have a little more money to spend and aren’t on quite as tight of a budget you should consider the iPad Pro. This iPad does everything students need, but the price is about 50% more than the iPad Air 3. While the camera quality on the iPad Air 3 is nothing to brag about, the iPad Pro offers amazing picture quality.
You can also expect crisp, beautiful pictures and videos when you’re using your iPad Pro. It has a Liquid Retina Display with Pro Motion and True Tone. You can expect a wide range of colors that the iPad Air 3 won’t be able to come close to.
Basically, if you have the money to spend and it doesn’t really matter how much you pay, go for the iPad Pro line. It’s certainly worth the money. But if you’re watching your money like a hawk and the less money you spend on technology means that you can afford some meals while you’re a student, go for the iPad Air 3. You won’t be disappointed with either option as long as you know what to expect.
