Benefits of the product

Some people find the tablet form factor useful because they watch videos, play games, and access social media.

Other people use it in place of a laptop. With the Apple ipad 8th generation you can have all the convenience of a laptop in a smaller package.

If you don’t type a lot then the tablet is perfect for you. (A keyboard can be purchased separately if needed)

Who is the Product for?

The Apple ipad 10.2-inch 8th generation is for those looking for a new Apple tablet. There is not much of an upgrade from the 7th gen except it has a faster processor. So those who have the 7th generation do not need to upgrade right away, but for those who have older models this is the time to upgrade.

What I like about the Product

It is easy to use and boots up fast. The extended battery life and fast processor. Great Gift!

What I don’t like about the Product

We are not typically users of Apple products so this was a nice little surprise gift, but it is still an Apple. We tend to use Microsoft in this household. Because we are not used to Apple software and programs, there has definitely been a learning curve.

Pros and Cons


– 90 days of Amazon Music Unlimited

– All Day battery life

– Siri Voice Assistant


– Does not come with keyboard. (Most tablets do not include a keyboard but we could not think of anything else!)

– Does not come with stylus

There is no specific training, but there are “how to” articles and YouTube videos do exist to help you with whatever you need.

Ease of Use/Usability

Very easy to use if you already know how to use a tablet. If you do not already use a tablet or apple products then there will be a steep (but worth it!) learning curve.

The size of the screen (10.2 inch) makes it easier to see and read.

  1. Hey,

    This is such an informative and positive review. The Apple i-pad 8th generation series does sound like a good upgrade from the last generation. I like to watch a lot of leadership and personal growth videos on my i-pad and it sounds like these videos could be streamed a lot faster and with more strength,

    I’m glad I can transfer the details on my current i-pad to the new one too. That is a good feature.

    I will let you know if I purchase this new generation and I will give my own review of it too.

    Thank you for sharing and keep up the great work with your reviews.

    All the best,
