Quality and Big Improvements
I bought this iPad 8th generation to update from the iPad 2 Mini I've used for the last 5 years. It won't be used for working, only home entertainment, but this will be a good investment going forward. It is a lot faster and more responsive than my old iPad 2, regarding both the touchscreen and quickness in the system. The screen is a big improvement from the old one, which does have Retina, but this looks sharper and more detailed. The 8th gen was magically easy to transfer all my info from the old iPad, in less than 10 minutes.
The features such as Picture-in-Picture and Dual Screen are much easier to use on the 8th generation. The sound is clearer, and the mic picks up my questions to Siri even through the iPad case I put it in.
My only issue is: though the 8th gen has a round earphone jack, it does not fit my Apple earbuds' jack plug. It does fit the earbuds' Lightning plug through the Lightning jack, but then I can't use earbuds when plugged into power source. I'm still exploring all that this new iPad has to offer, so I'll probably solve that soon. Read full review
