A quick and easy way to tell if you have an older (pre 2012) iPad is from the connector. Apple introduced the lightning connector to their range of products in 2012 including iPads and iPhones. So if you have the old 30-pin dock connector which it replaced you know it is pre 2012.

Other significant differences are the retina display and the speakers on newer models. As with connectors the Retina display was introduced in 2012. Retina displays have a higher pixel density than other screens which makes images appear sharper in the later models. The four speaker setup available on iPad Pro models are easier to spot.

Models with mobile as well as WiFi connectivity have a slot for a SIM card. Finally the amount of storage available can be found on the back of the iPad or by going Settings > General > About as above.

How long will my iPad last?

First generation iPads bought in 2010 will still work if they are looked after and can be happily used for simple tasks. But as iPad models become more sophisticated so do the apps. Which often means that the only way to keep your favourite apps working as they should is to upgrade.

When Apple create new models they release new accessories too which means that when your old ones wear out there are no Apple ones available to replace them.

Batteries also wear out over time. The more times they are charged the more they degrade. If your iPad loses its charge within five hours, it could do with replacing.

Once the screen starts to get scratches and cracks, it may be time to start thinking of upgrading. The same things goes for when the touch screen and buttons stop responding as they should.

Which iPad should I upgrade to?

iPad Mini 4

Which iPad you upgrade to will depend on what you want to do with it. Models differ in terms of the size of the screen, storage capacity, core components and mobile connectivity.

iPad Mini 4

The Mini is light and portable with a significant upgrade in hardware from the Mini 3. Similar in performance to the Air 2 but smaller.

iPad Air 2

The iPad Air 2 is still a solid choice with a lower price than the Pro models. Go for this model if you don’t mind about slightly less power and don’t intend to use the Smart Keyboard and pencil.

New iPad (2018)

Sits between the Air 2 and the Pro range. Designed more for browsing the web and watching video than for pure productivity. Like the Air 2 it doesn’t work with Smart Keyboard.

iPad Pro 10.5 (2017)

The entry level Pro has a bigger screen with better resolution than previous models. Compatible with all of the latest accessories including Smart Keyboard. The Pro range is all about productivity, faster performance and other features come at higher price.

iPad Pro 12.9 (2017)

The size of the screen, resolution and speaker setup make the Pro 12.9 the best for entertainment purposes. The powerful components make it best for productivity too. This is the closest thing to a laptop but runs the tablet iOS.

How do I maximise the value of my old iPad?

One of the best ways to pay towards a new iPad is to make the most you can from selling your old one.

Box, packaging and cables

Apple’s attention to detail includes everything about their products including the box, packaging and cables. Unboxing an iPad is a crucial part of the customer experience. Which means that people routinely pay more for iPads in the original packaging. Original cables, charging docks and connectors all add to the value of your iPad.

Condition and cleaning

Apple recommend cleaning your iPad with a slightly damp, lint-free cloth. Don’t use aerosol sprays, solvents or abrasive materials.
