Default iPad recommendations?

I need a new iPad. Mine is so old that the technology wonít support many of the apps today. I think I bought it in 2010-11? Anyway, recommendations? I will use it for websurfing, kindle reading, maybe pictures.

One tech website that I follow reviews the ipad line whenever an update comes out. If you are interested in the ipad mini (smaller screen), they really like it:

the larger screen ipad air they also say is very good:

Mine is a 6th generation 128 GB. It’s a couple years old and gets a ton of use.

Current model is 9th generation. From $329 for 64GB.

I have a a iPad Pro that is 2-3 years old and it has been a work horse. I have a cover that includes a keyboard and the iPad really doubles as my lap top. The key board did die but since it was bought a the same time as the iPad Apple covered it in the apple care program and replaced it no questions asked even though it has obviously seen a lot of wear. My pro model uses a USB-C connector for charging and that is a bit inconvenient since we are an Apple family and everything other devices uses a lightening cable.

I'm glad you asked this question. I need a new iPad and am torn on what to buy. I'm leaning towards the iPad Air and the new iPad mini. I have an old mini now and I do love the size. It fits nicely in my larger purse, etc. However, I also like the Air....what to do, what to do.

Iím always happy to help other people spend money!
