The iPad 2019 with 128GB of storage and 4G network compatibility – in addition to Wi-Fi – is the most expensive model of Apple’s affordable tablet, but also the most versatile. For sales, Amazon now offers it with a reduction of 140 euros on its original price.

The iPad 2019 doesn’t offer much of an improvement in its technical specifications compared to its predecessor, but it does have the merit of being more versatile than before thanks to its Smart Connector. The latter can accommodate a keyboard to turn the tablet into a laptop. Add to that the Apple Pencil and you’ve got a real productivity ally, and it’s 4G compatible for use anywhere.

Instead of 629 euros, the iPad 2019 (128 GB, Wi-Fi + Cellular) is now available for 489 euros on Amazon. Namely, it’s normally the price of the same model with Wi-Fi and 128GB of storage, but without 4G.

To better understand the offer

  • What are the features of the new iPad 2019?

The iPad 2019 is no different from its predecessor in terms of technical specifications. We still find the A10 Fusion chip for a fluid daily experience, an estimated autonomy of about ten hours (rechargeable via the Lightning port) or the same duo of 8 megapixel cameras at the front and rear. In terms of design, the same thick borders around the screen are present, with of course the Home button equipped with Touch ID to unlock the tablet with a fingerprint.

  • What makes it different from the iPad 2018?

First of all by its slightly more imposing design. The iPad 2019 features an always-Retina LCD screen with 3.5 million pixels, but with a diagonal of 10.2 inches, compared to 9.7 inches for the 2018 iPad. Next, Apple added a Smart Connector to its affordable tablet, allowing it to accommodate a homemade keyboard and thus be considered a hybrid tablet. With Apple Pencil compatibility always on board, the iPad 2019 is a real productivity booster.

According to the Cupertino firm, it can easily replace a computer in the same price range. It is also possible to transform the tablet into a game console by connecting via Bluetooth an Xbox, PS4 or MFi certified controller. A feature that takes on its full meaning with Apple Arcade.

  • What does compatibility with the 4G network bring?

Since the first iPad of the name, Apple has always equipped one (or more) model(s) of a generation with a SIM card port. The point is simply to stay connected even when you don’t have access to a Wi-Fi network. However, the iPad 2019 is not compatible with eSIM or the integrated Apple SIM card, so you must use a French operator of your choice, preferably on the 4G network. Be careful, the nano SIM is the only accepted format.
