Since its release in 2010, the Apple iPad has taken the world by storm and revolutionised the way we use computers. No longer must we sit down at desks, awkwardly position laptops or squint at a phone screen – the iPad is the ultimate portable device. Those who own one will testify that it’s now simple to watch a movie in bed or relax and browse the internet on the sofa making the digital world that much more accessible. From the classroom to the office, the iPad is a functional piece of kit and has helped drive paperless ways of working, permeating the worlds of business, education and design, to name a few. Keep up with meetings, compose powerful presentations and discover endless entertainment from millions of apps available from the touch of a finger. Technology at its finest, from the crystal-clear display, crisp camera and powerful processing speed all in one sleek slate.
All the power of a computer in one compact and portable device. Large display coupled with a slim design, our iPad pro range is the go-to choice for all busy-body professionals in business, design and creative industry who love to multi-task on the go. Whether you want to stream content, play games, work on documents or create drawings and sketches, we’ve got a great variety of colours, storage sizes and other preferences to make your iPad Pro your very own sidekick. There are 4 internal memory sizes to choose from; 64Gb, 256GB, 512GB and a whopping 1TB. You can also choose whether you want Wi-Fi or if you want one that also has cellular connectivity; allowing you to have access to cellular data the same way a phone does.
Despite its lightweight appearance, the iPad Air still packs a mean punch when you compare all its high-end features. The 2019 model for example is compatible with the handy 1st generation Apple pencil, along with a lovely big screen making it the ideal model for note-taking and sketching; perfect for busy students looking for a quick and efficient alternative to lugging a whole laptop around campus. If you don’t want to empty your wallet on the iPad Pro, save a few quid on the iPad Air instead.
Big enough to enjoy streaming and browsing, small enough to throw (not literally) in to your bag and take with you everywhere you go. Our iPad Mini range proves that powerful things can come in small packages. With a 9.7-inch screen, it perfectly fills the gap between smartphone and regular iPad. The latest model, the iPad Mini 5, features the new A12 Bionic chip which performs faster and more efficiently than its previous generation. Ideal for the gamers, readers, streamers and casual browsers of the world.
Because you’re bound to take your iPad Mini with you everywhere you go, protect your little slate from scratches and damage with our iPad case selection, we’ve got covers to fit all 3 iPad types.
The iPad has various basic features. They all have multi-touch display and operate on Apple’s intuitive operating system, currently at iOS 12. All models have Wi-Fi access, though some also have cellular connectivity.
The first-generation iPad didn’t have a camera, but all models since have had front and rear cameras. In conjunction with dual microphones, one to tune out background noise, this allows the use of FaceTime and similar programmes. Apple’s Retina display, their trademarked name for the high-density displays that they now use on nearly all their products, makes the displays look crisp and non-pixelated, whilst proximity and ambient light sensors make the display automatically adjust its brightness. Later versions have Touch ID, allowing you to unlock the device with your fingerprint and Face ID, allowing you to do so with your face. Software is a big selling point, with Apple’s App Store offering a diverse range of around 2 million apps including social media, mapping, entertainment, productivity, news and many more.
There are many iPad accessories that you may choose, but the most important are iPad chargers. It’s worth buying two – one for home use and one to keep coiled in your bag so you don’t run out of battery when you’re out and about. Although iPads have their own external speakers you can connect to wireless speakers for an extra boost to your bass, pair some Bluetooth headphones for when you’re rolling solo, you can even connect keyboards, a mouse and more through Bluetooth.
One hallmark of the iPad is its famous simplicity, but there are also specially designed kids’ tablets, suitable for curious young minds (and little clumsy butter fingers). We also stock a wide range of tablets from other leading manufacturers, including Samsung tablets which are renowned for their high specs and desirable design. And if you’ve begun to explore eBooks and love having a library in your pocket then Amazon’s Kindle is the market leading e-reader and offers a reading experience like no other, with a crystal-clear screen, Wi-Fi connectivity and many other features.
