Apple's 2018-edition iPad is a competitively priced, 9.7-inch tablet made with the classroom in mind. Its big highlight is the support for the Apple Pencil, while specs put it in between the iPad Pro and the 2017-edition iPad in terms of features and performance. The iPad starts at $329, but a discounted price of $299 is applied if the tablet is meant for school use, while students will receive 200GB of cloud storage for free.
