The first iPad was launched in 2010 and, though thin and light for its day, now has the appearance of an aluminium slab that could easily be weaponised given enough force. With a base price of £439 $499, the original iPad was powered by Apple's A4 chip...

While Apple typically always introduces a faster and more expensive iPad, this year's 2018 version (or 6th-generation) updates the 2017 iPad in a more affordable form. It's clear that Apple's tablet isn't just made for those who can afford the expensive p...
