iPad Pro buyers guide

There's a lot to consider before you buy or upgrade to a new tablet, even the all-new iPad Pro. First, you need to make sure you really want an iPad Pro and not an iPad Air or iPad mini. Then, you need to figure out what storage capacity and color you want, if Wi-Fi and cellular is a must, and whether or not you need AppleCare. If you're not sure about any or all of that, don't worry. That's why we're here—to help you pick the perfect iPad Pro for you!

Should you get an iPad Pro or a MacBook?

For the first time Apple has an iPad that's close to a Mac and a Mac that's close to an iPad: The iPad Pro and new MacBook. The iPad Pro runs iOS 9 on an Apple A9X processor. The MacBook runs OS X El Capitan on an Intel M. Both can are ideal for planes and coffee shops, classrooms and conferences, home and office. But which one is better for you?

Should you get the iPad Pro?

There's never been an iPad like the iPad Pro. It's bigger, with an amazing 12.9-inch laminated Retina display. It's also more powerful, with a desktop-rivaling Apple A9X chipset. There's also the Apple Pencil, which enables new worlds of creativity, the Smart Connector, which allows for all new, all better keyboards, and an experience that's just as empowering but even more accessible than a traditional laptop. It's not for those who prefer the ultra-portability of the iPad mini or the balance of the iPad Air, but if you want the biggest window possible into apps and the internet, it could just be for you!

What iPad Pro storage size should you get: 32 GB vs. 128 GB?

The iPad Pro comes with 32 GB or 128 GB of storage. Picking between them can be tough, especially since cost increases along with size, and as apps and content get bigger, operating systems are getting more efficient. The last thing you want to do is pay for storage you don't need... aside from running out of storage when you need it most. So, how much iPad Pro storage is enough?

Which iPad should you get: iPad Pro, iPad Air, or iPad mini?

Apple offers more iPad options then ever. There's the ultra-portable iPad mini 4, the full-sized iPad Air 2, and now the ultra-powerful iPad Pro. It's not just the screen sizes that vary either, the processors go from ridiculous to ludicrous, and the prices... they go up too. So, do you go with small, big, or bigger? Portable or powerful? Which iPad should you get?

What iPad color should you get: Silver, gold, or space gray?

The iPad Pro, iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 4 come in a wider variety of colors—or metallic finishes—than ever before. There may not be a rose gold version like the iPhones 6s, at least not yet, but there is space gray, silver, and gold. The space gray still comes with a black faceplate and the gold, like the silver, comes with a white faceplate. With greater choice in colors, however, comes a harder choice: which one should you get?

What iPad Air or iPad mini storage size should you get: 16 GB vs. 64 GB vs. 128 GB?

The iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 4 come with 16 GB, 64 GB, or 128 GB of storage. Picking between them can be tough, especially since cost increases along with size, and as apps and content get bigger, operating systems are getting more efficient. The last thing you want to do is pay for storage you don't need... except for running out of storage when you need it most. So, how much iPad storage is enough?

Apple TV buyers guide

There's a new Apple TV in town. It doesn't do 4K but it does do Siri and apps, and that makes it a significant improvement over the old—but still for sale!—Apple TV. Whether or not that means it'll be a compelling upgrade for everyone, and who can get away with the 32 GB version and who needs the full-on 64 GB version remain open questions for some. If you're one of them, we can help you figure out the answers!

Should you upgrade to the new Apple TV?

The last time the Apple TV was updated it was 2012 and it shared the stage with the iPad 3. The new Apple TV was just announced in 2015 and it shared the stage with the iPad Pro. That should give you an indication of just how long, and how big, the leap between generations really is. But if you have a 2012 Apple TV, and it still works and does what you need it to do, should you consider upgrading?
