Compare iPad features and specs to find the right one for you. No matter if you’re using it for gaming, browsing, WFH, or remote learning. Here are a few key things to keep in mind while choosing a new tablet:


Size: Touchscreens bring images to life and make it easier to work, read, and play games. Most tablets are between 7"-10", with a few even going up to 18”, so the size you’ll need will mostly depend on what you plan to use it for.

Processor: Just like a computer, your device’s processor powers everything it does. How fast you can launch videos, stream music, load web pages, and open apps depends on how many “cores” are in your processor. Simply put: the more cores you have, the smoother things will go. 

Memory: How many apps, music, photos, and eBooks you want stored on your tablet will give you an idea of how much memory you’ll need. And if you want more speed, you’ll want RAM (Random Access Memory) too. The RAM starts programs quicker and keeps them running faster.

Battery: Reading, working, and playing games takes a toll on your battery. If you’re worried about your tablet running out of juice in the middle of something important, look for one with a long battery life (at least 9 hours) or plan ahead with some accessories to keep you charged on-the-go.

Wireless Technology: Do you mostly use your tablet on the go? If so, consider getting a tablet that can connect to cellular networks (4G, 5G). Don’t forget to upgrade to an unlimited data plan for 5G access and add a line for your new tablet. Wi-Fi connectivity is standard on tablets.

Accessories: Don’t forget iPad accessories like Magic Keyboard, Apple Pencil (2nd gen), or AirPods Pro. AT&T has a great selection of tablet cases, wired or wireless chargers too.
