1. Apple iPad Air (2022) – The best of all ( )
Only minor tweaks were needed to make the greatest tablet on the market even better.
Apple’s M1 chipset, a new 12Mp front-facing camera with face-tracking Centre Stage tech for video conversations, and 5G capability are the primary enhancements.
It has the same premium design, Touch ID, and compatibility with Apple’s Magic Keyboard and Apple Pencil. Apple just made their finest tablet last longer.
Consider the 11in iPad Pro if you want 120Hz ProMotion or fewer bezels, but you’ll pay more.
2. Xiaomi Pad 5 – Top for Android
Xiaomi hasn’t released a tablet globally since 2016, but the Xiaomi Pad 5 is a welcome return. The tiny tablet has a 2.5K 120Hz display, amazing stereo speakers, and solid performance.
As with its phones, Xiaomi’s tablet-optimized take on MIUI won’t suit everyone, but it’s usable. While the added connectivity found on Chinese models doesn’t make it to most international markets, there’s still little else on the Android side we’d highly recommend, especially around the Pad 5’s asking price.
