The new iPad is the best tablet you can buy right now

Apple’s new iPad for 2017 is officially our favorite tablet in the world right now, offering a bright 9.7-inch display, full-metal premium design and a lower price than ever before.

It took top spot from the iPad Pro 9.7, which was ranked number one until today, that's slightly more expensive but offers professional features such as compatibility with the Apple Smart Keyboard and Apple Pencil.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 meanwhile sits in third place offering a HDR-ready screen, a stylus in the box and the best design on an Android tablet right now.

Apple’s new iPad has received a five star review from TechRadar - the first tablet to get that honor since the iPad Air 2 in late 2014 - thanks to a lower price than every other iPad on the market.

The rest of the best tablet list features entries from Google, Microsoft and Asus as well as other tablets from Samsung and Apple.
