iPad generations: which Apple tablet should you buy in 2024?

There are lots of different iPad generations, so it can get a little confusing. Don't worry, though: our list here contains every single iPad available to buy today, along with details of how they differ. 

We've divided into four, to cover the four broad types of iPad: the iPad Pro, iPad mini, iPad Air, and the basic iPad (which Apple just calls 'iPad').  Sometimes these come in different sizes; for example, the latest iPad Pro comes in 12.9 inch and 11 inch versions. Also be aware that there are often differences between these models beyond just the screen size.
