Almost all the reviews on Amazon are a full five stars with the average rating from thousands of shoppers 4.8 out of 5, suggesting that the affordable tablet ticks all the boxes for people.
‘The latest iPad is so much better than my original,’ praised one Amazon shopper. ‘The picture quality is amazing and the apps open much quicker. All in all Apple have this absolutely right.’
Another added: ‘I decided to upgrade from a Samsung Galaxy Tab S. The iPad 9th Generation is wonderful by comparison, fingerprint recognition works, updates come regularly, battery life is more than enough to leave it on day and night for days at a time. It recognized my iPhone 12 and configured itself using the setup from the phone. I wish I changed to Apple sooner.’
