Few points to note

There are few iPads to avoid is you are looking for the older versions like Apple iPad 1-4, iPad Mini 1-3, iPad Air. Though there’s a chance an older iPad could still perform decently, but unless someone is giving you one for free, try to hunt for a newer model. Many of the older iPads no longer receive software updates, and they’ll seem so slow compared to your phone and your computer.

The Mini 1 and iPad 1-2 also have very low-resolution screens. Also if you want a tablet for your kids then you can buy Amazon’s Fire tablets instead, which are cheaper than any new iPad and still have tons of kid-friendly features and parental controls.

Also for those who cannot afford new iPads, Apple is there to help you out.  Apple sells refurbished iPad or older iPad that still work efficiently. Finally, always remember to update your iPad iOS and the various apps that you use for your iPad.

Now make the choice which one suits you best and buy the iPad either directly from the Apple store online or at a physical store near you or compare the prices at other stores to get a good price.
