The best iPad to buy (and some to avoid)

If you’re shopping for a new iPad, there are a variety of accessories you can purchase to help you get the most out of your tablet. Below we highlight some of our favorites, which you can find in our Guide to the best iPad accessories.

Zugu case for $50: This is our favorite iPad folio case for multiple reasons. Not only is it durable (complete with a hard bumper), but it also has a magnetized cover that stays closed and a flap that allows you to position the screen at eight different angles. The case is also magnetic, allowing you to stick it securely on the refrigerator. It’s also reasonably priced, comes in a variety of colors, and has a place for your Apple Pencil.

Logitech Combo Touch (10th generation) for $160: The Combo Touch comes with an integrated keyboard, trackpad and stand, making it ideal for working on your iPad. It’s also detachable, so you can easily remove the keyboard when you don’t need it. It connects via Apple’s Smart Connector, meaning you’ll never need to fiddle with Bluetooth or bother charging it.

Paper-Like Charcoal Folio Case ($70): Paperlike is known for its screen protector, but the company also offers a great case. It’s designed to look like a sketchbook, complete with a polyester fabric cover that feels lightweight and high-quality. You can also support your iPad on two different levels. It doesn’t come with an Apple Pencil slot, but there is a large flap closure that prevents it from falling out. We tried it with him iPad airbut it is also available for iPadPro (both sizes).

Apple Magic Trackpad 2 for $110: For a spacious trackpad, the Magic Trackpad 2 is a great option. Instead of physical buttons, it has Force Touch sensors where you can feel different levels of pressure on the pad. By supporting various iPadOS gestures, you won’t have to touch the screen as much. It automatically pairs with your iPad via Bluetooth and recharges with the Lightning port.

Logitech K380 Bluetooth Keyboard for $43: If you prefer an external keyboard, it’s hard to go wrong with the Logitech K380. It’s lightweight and portable and can connect to up to three devices via Bluetooth (with dedicated buttons to switch between them). The keyboard runs on AAA batteries, which lasted us about four months, so you don’t have to worry about carrying a charger.

Twelve South HoverBar Duo 2.0 for $80: The HoverBar serves two purposes. You can mount it to the side of your bed, kitchen counter, or shelf (for convenient, hands-free viewing) or you can use the included stand on your desk. With the second generation version, you can now remove the arm from the clamp and connect it directly to the mount, making it easy to switch between both modes.

Twelve South StayGo Mini USB-C hubs for $60: Regardless of the iPad model, ports are limited. This hub from Twelve South has an 85-watt USB-C port with pass-through charging, a USB-A port, an HDMI, and a headphone jack. If you’re having trouble installing it on an iPad with a case, the included USB-C to USB-C cable will solve the problem.
