Tablets have increased productivity in the workplace and made it easier to enjoy entertainment at home. Apple® iPads® combine the best of both worlds, giving users access to a wide array of apps available in the iTunes® store. They come in different sizes and with advanced features that streamline organization and operation. Staples® carries several models to suit nearly any user, whether for pleasure or business.

iPads Come in Several Models
Since the first iPad launched in 2010, Apple has released several additional models including the Pro®, Air®, and mini™ versions. Each one has an interactive touchscreen that makes it easy to navigate between apps and functions. The screen size varies from 7.9-inch on the mini to 12.9-inch on the Pro model, and all incorporate a Retina® display that provides crystal-clear clarity with a minimum of 2048 x 1536 resolution.

iPads Incorporate Advanced Technology
Apple integrates patented technology into each iPad it releases. Advanced CPU and graphics chips make operation seamless, with removable or embedded coprocessors that increase the device's speed even while running multiple programs. The iSight® camera ranges from 8 to 12MP, depending on the model, and makes it easy for users to take panoramic pictures and videos. FaceTime® cameras have a lower resolution that ranges from 1.2 to 5MP.

Each model comes with Safari®, though it's possible to download and install different browsers from the iTunes store. Advanced models come with additional features, such as the Touch ID® function that gives users more individual control over the device. Apple Pay® incorporates the Touch ID feature for payments in apps.

Which iPad Is Best for Business Use?
If you plan to use the iPad for work or running a business, it's essential to make sure you have enough storage and memory to efficiently run the programs and store the files you need. The Pro model offers up to 256GB of built-in memory and 4GB of RAM, making it a viable solution for the workplace. If you're using it for personal use, using a model with 16GB of built-in memory is sufficient. The screen size also varies, which is important for visibility. Viewing spreadsheets and data, and manipulating graphics is easier with a larger screen, so it's important to consider this factor as well.

Do iPads Have 3G or 4G LTE Connectivity?
That depends on the model that you choose. Some are designed for Wi-Fi connectivity only, while others you can add to a cellular data plan to use it anywhere there's service available. Each of the devices specifies whether it's compatible with a cellular plan, so research is essential prior to purchasing. The other option is to connect your iPad to a mobile hotspot, so you can use your cellular data with a Wi-Fi only device, no matter where you go.

What Colors Do iPads Come In?
iPads come in different colors, with the most common shades being silver and space gray. The iPad mini, Air 2, and Pro also come in a gold color scheme, and select devices come in rose gold.
