Introduced in 2010, the iPad was Apple’s “next big thing” following the success of the iPhone. Software-wise, it runs iPadOS, the big sister of the mobile operating system that powers the iPhone, with features and optimizations only available on the tablet computer.

iPad is currently available in five Retina display screen sizes: 7.9-inch, 9.7-inch, 10.59-inch, 11-inch, and 12.9-inch. The 12.9″ and 11″ Pro models were last updated in early 2020. The 10.9″ Air was updated in September of 2020. The mini was last updated in 2019 as well. The 9.7″ iPad was last updated in September of 2020.

The tablet is at the heart of Apple’s education strategy. For enterprise customers who deploy it in mass, they use mobile device management products like Jamf and Apple Configurator to manage them.

It’s pitched as an “everything machine” in that it can be used for work, play, and everything in between. Official accessories include the Apple Pencil, Smart Keyboard, Apple-branded cases, Apple Pencil 2, Apple Pencil 1, and the Magic Keyboard.
