The name may have changed, but the latest iPad still reigns supreme as the best tablet overall and the best 10-inch tablet you can buy. The latest iteration of the Apple tablet is totally redesigned and is much slimmer and lighter than before.
It uses a turbo charged version of the brilliant 64-bit Apple A7 processor found in the iPhone 5S
and also comes with an excellent Retina screen. Samsung has actually surpassed Apple in terms of tablet screen quality, but this is still a very good display.
The iPad Air impresses in all departments from gaming to browsing, and with iOS 7
on board you get all the benefits of the latest Apple mobile operating system, a fantastic range of apps and access to iWorks and iLife suite of apps for free.
It has one of the best battery life measurements of any tablet, hitting more than 10 hours of constant use and comes with a decent 5-megapixel camera.
If you can stump up the £400, you will not be left disappointed by what is undeniably the best 10-inch tablet you can buy by quite a margin.
