INSANE Value!!! 10 Reasons YOU Should Buy the iPad 8!


in this video i’m going to give you 10 reasons why you should buy the ipad 8 which i think is massively underrated when you look at what you get for the money and that brings me right to the first reason which is the price of the current lineup of ipads the ipad 8 is the least expensive starting at 329 dollars for the 32 gigabyte wi-fi only version and then moving up to 429 for the 128 gig version and if you get one of them through the education store you can knock off an additional 20 bucks this means you’ll be getting all the benefits that i’m going to be talking about for what i think ends up being a fairly reasonable price the next reason why i think the ipad 8 is a great buy has to do with portability the 10.2 inch display is encased in a similarly sized footprint to that of the ipad air 4 but of course we’re getting larger bezels on the top and the bottom so the display ends up being smaller as far as portability i think this is a great size for a tablet where it’s big enough to offer advantages over using a phone and at the same time it’s small enough to where bringing it doesn’t become prohibitive and don’t get me wrong i love my 12.9 inch ipad pro but with the magic keyboard it’s quite heavy and

pretty big so bringing it with me requires more of a consideration at number three we have durability for a tablet the ipad 8 is actually quite durable and of course i recommend always keeping it in a case for additional protection a display on the ipad 8 is not fully laminated meaning that the top glass is actually a separate layer than the display and touch layer while that creates a smaller air gap it does mean that if the glass gets scratched or broken and needs to be replaced you’ll pay a much lower fee because it only requires that layer to be replaced with a fully laminated display like on the ipad air 4 and the ipad pro because the top layer the touch layer and the display are laminated into a single layer the entire display would have to be replaced and therefore the price would go up last week my brother-in-law called me because he was buying two new ipads for his young children and he was debating between the ipad 8 and the ipad air 4.

And without hesitation i just said ipad 8 end of story just go buy them at number 4 we have the apple pencil and the ipad 8 is compatible with the original first generation apple pencil which adds a ton of functionality you can draw take notes edit photos and do so much more with this super powerful tool i have a video dedicated to apple pencil tips and tricks so if you want to learn more about it check out that video right there if you don’t want to spend the money on the apple pencil you can always pick up the less expensive logitech crayon both of them worked well for me but if budget is not an issue i do prefer the apple pencil at number five we have gaming i love playing games on my ipads the display is bigger than my phone and it’s much easier to see what i’m doing now for some reason i prefer to play pubg on my ipad 8 versus the air 4.

It seems more comfortable to hold and maybe because the larger bezels i don’t know but i don’t feel like my hands are covering as much of the game i’ve also had no issues with lagging or overheating which is something that i run into using my iphone now of course if the game supports it you can also connect a controller like the playstation dual shock 4 or the steel series nimbus plus and then use that to play alright we still have five reasons to go so if you’re still with me and have gotten value from this video give it a thumbs up it lets me know what kind of content you like so that i can make more of it and i still see that over 90 of you are new viewers so hit that subscribe button the number six reason to get the ipad 8 is the accessories now unlike the ipad air 4 and the ipad pro there’s no magic keyboard which might be a good thing since it would cost as much as the ipad 8.

now instead i opted for the less expensive logitech slim folio which actually has a pretty nice keyboard if you want to add a trackpad you can grab the logitech combo touch and if you want a keyboard that’s not part of the case check out the k480 i use this board with different tablets because it can be paired up with up to three devices and it adds a row of function keys which add functionality like volume and multimedia control as well as other functions that would normally require a keyboard shortcut and using the control center at number 7 we have the charger the ipad 8 comes with a 20 watt adapter which is the same one that comes with the ipad air 4 and more powerful than the 18 watt adapter that comes with the ipad pro it uses a usbc to lightning cable for faster charging and because the ipad 8 still has the older lightning cable you can use the same chargers you currently have for your iphones or older ipads i do like usbc charging on my ipad air 4 and the ipad pro but

because i have an iphone it does mean that i need to have two different types of cables on my desk at reason number eight we have ipad os so while the ipad 8 is at the bottom of apple’s ipad lineup it still benefits from the latest ipad os updates that means you can multitask and split view use slide over for additional apps take advantage of various gestures switch between apps customize the control center use airdrop and a lot more features i have part one and two of my ipad tips series published already and a third one on the way so if you want to learn about a lot of incredibly useful ipad tips check out that series when you’re done with this video but don’t leave yet because i have two more reasons at number nine we have processing power now some people underrate the ipad 8 because it still uses the a12 bionic chip whereas the ipad air 4 and the ipad pro use the newer a14 and a12 z chips respectively while it’s true that these two have more power the majority

of users and the vast majority at that don’t use the full processing power of their ipads if you’re watching movies streaming music playing some games and using the ipad 8 with some productivity or note-taking apps you don’t need any more than what the a12 chip can do it’s also true that the ipad air 4 has more ram at 4 gigabytes and the ipad pro has even more at 6 gigabytes but unless you’re doing things like working with a ton of layers in procreate you’re unlikely to notice the difference if you need that extra processing power or the additional ram then it’s a good idea to jump into one of the higher end options but i use lumafusion for video editing lightroom for photo editing several different note-taking apps like notability good notes evernote nebo and endless paper and i haven’t experienced any issues so make sure that if processing power is going to be a deciding factor that you take into account what you actually plan on doing with your ipad and that way you don’t spend extra money where you don’t need to the next reason to choose the ipad 8 as

the headphone jack so unlike the ipad air 4 and the ipad pro which require you to use a usbc adapter or a usbc hub if you want to use wired headphones the ipad 8 still has a 3.5 millimeter headphone jack you can of course still use wireless headphones but it’s a great feature for kids because you don’t have to worry about another device to charge when i’m gaming it’s also great that i can plug my headset directly into the ipad without needing a 3.5 millimeter to lightning adapter which saves me from having to bring another piece of gear with me remember that i have links in the description to all the products i talked about hopefully this video was helpful click on my face to subscribe and then watch one of these videos you know what i always say buy it nice or buy it twice good luck and see you soon
