Real-life comarison

As you have seen the benchmark comparison and becomes a mere game of numbers when day-to-day tasks hits. Both the models of the iPad 8th Gen are capable of handling day-to-day tasks like YouTube, Surfing the internet, Social media, and others with ease.

Also, the RAM of the device has been upgraded to 3GB, and this does help when you have a habit of opening quite a lot of apps in the background. A lot of background apps can be kept without disturbing the performance of the iPad and thanks to the A12 Bionic chip it can also handle all the multitasking as well as the split-screen multitasking with ease.

Be a student or any professional, iPad 8th Gen is the best budget tablet to work on. From taking notes to creating illustrations it handles all the tasks seamlessly. The Apple iPencil 1st Gen is the perfect match for this device for doing tasks.

In the case of storage, the 128GB version can provide some more space to move but in the case of 32GB it kind of feels like a restriction, and with the old Lightning port it becomes more restricted to use any other external storage devices with ease. In 128GB you can get enough space to store your apps and movies as well in the device.


See the full review on the iPad 8th Gen 32GB here. The price difference is just INR 9,000 between 32GB and 128GB models, so if you want to just have it for any daily usage purpose then the 32GB version will be the right choice. But if you want to have an iPad for educational and work purposes then you should go for a 128GB version as it will allow you to have more storage space and you can store your works easily.
