Should you get the new Pencil-ready iPad (6th generation), or still splurge for the iPad Pro? CNET’s Dan Ackerman and Scott Stein discuss the pros and cons of Apple’s newest iPad.

The new Apple iPad announced at Lane Tech College Prep High School last week has a 9.7-inch Multi-Touch Retina display, powerful A10 Fusion chip, and now supports Apple Pencil with 32GB or 128GB of storage.

2017 and 2018 iPad Difference?
Faster processor
Pencil support

There’s still no smart connector in either of the smaller iPads. The smart connector, available in the iPad Pro, connects to a smart connector keyboard or Smart Keyboard, which docks with iPad Pro via a magnetic connection that provides data transfer and power. Smart Keyboard, also functions as a kickstand.

The iPad Pro has 4GB of RAM compared to the 2018 Generation 6 with only 2GB of RAM.

The 2018 pencil support has a weird charging connection that places the pencil awkwardly sticking out from the 2018 Apple iPad during charging. Also, there is no case for the pencil.

AR, Augmented Reality, works on both the 2017 and the 2018 iPad, so it is not recommended to get the newer iPad for AR.

Additional of a pencil and a keyboard adds about $250 price to the $329 price — about the price of a laptop without the web-capable features of a laptop — no fully-functioning web browser. If your leaning toward laptop capability, CNET reviewers Dan Ackerman and Scott Stein recommend the Samsung ChromeBook Pro, which includes a keyboard, a touch screen and a stylus for $599 at Best Buy.

The charger on the 2018 iPad is only 12 Watts, which means fast charging (less than 3 hours) is unreachable.

THUMBS DOWN FOR …
No Smart Connector
Lame charger
2GB RAM
Only 32GB or 128GB, instead of 64GB or 256GB — especially when there is no slot for external storage.

The new Apple iPad has the same design and overall features as its predecessor, but has a new processor and support for the Apple Pencil. It will be available this week for $329 for consumers and $299 for educators. Dan Seifert reports from Apple’s education event in Chicago. *Correction: The processor is actually an A10 fusion not A10x.

Apple’s new iPad for 2018, the 6th generation, is very good. It’s also the bare minimum Apple could do to update it. Should you get an iPad Pro instead? (APRIL 3, 2018)

Austin Evans: For $329 the new iPad 2018 works with Apple Pencil but is it worth it? (Apple iPad 9.7 inch 6th Generation).
