Engadget Review

Once again, Apple has squeezed a bunch of components from past iOS devices -- the processor from the iPhone 7, the Pencil-friendly touch sensor from the first iPad Pro -- into a familiar body. While that might not sound terribly exciting, it all comes together to offer one of the most pleasant experiences you'll find from a sub-$500 tablet. Whether schools will embrace this machine as enthusiastically as Apple hopes remains to be seen, but it's the best cheap iPad Apple has ever made and there's enough performance and polish here for everyone.
