The best iPads to buy (and some things to avoid) in 2024

If you’re buying a new iPad, there are plenty of accessories you can buy to help you get the most out of your tablet. Below, we’ve highlighted some of our favorites, all of which you can find in Guide to the best iPad accessories. We’re currently testing accessories for the new iPad Pro and iPad Air and will share our thoughts soon.

Zugu case for $50: This is our favorite folio case for iPad for many reasons. Not only is it durable (complete with a hard bumper), but it also has a magnetized cover that stays closed, and the cover allows you to position the screen at eight different angles. The cover is also magnetic, allowing you to securely stick it to the refrigerator. It’s also reasonably priced, comes in a variety of colors, and has room for your Apple Pencil.

Logitech Combo Touch (10th generation) for $160: Combo Touch comes with an integrated keyboard, trackpad, and kickstand, ideal for getting work done on your iPad. It’s also removable so you can easily remove the keyboard when you don’t need it. It connects via Apple’s Smart Connector, meaning you never need to fiddle with Bluetooth or bother with charging the battery.

Paper-like Folio Charcoal Case ($70): Paperlike is known for its screen protectors, but the company also offers a great case. It’s designed like a sketchbook, complete with a polyester fabric cover that feels lightweight and high-quality. You can also elevate your iPad on two different levels. It doesn’t come with an Apple Pencil slot, but has a large closure that prevents it from falling out. We tested it with iPad Airbut it is also available for iPad Pro (both sizes).

Apple Magic Trackpad 2 for $110: For a spacious trackpad, the Magic Trackpad 2 is a great choice. Instead of physical buttons, it has a Force Touch sensor where you can feel different levels of pressure on the pad. With support for various iPadOS gestures, you won’t have to touch the screen as much. It automatically pairs with your iPad via Bluetooth and recharges using the Lightning port.

Logitech K380 Bluetooth keyboard for $40: If you like external keyboards, it’s hard to ignore the Logitech K380. It’s lightweight and portable, and can connect to up to three devices via Bluetooth (there are dedicated buttons to switch between them). The keyboard is powered by a AAA battery, which lasts about four months, so you don’t have to worry about carrying a charger with you.

Twelve South HoverBar Duo 2.0 for $80: HoverBar serves two purposes. You can mount it to your bedside, kitchen counter, or shelf (for comfortable, hands-free viewing of content), or you can use the included stand at your desk. With the 2nd generation version, you can now remove the arm from the clip and attach it directly to the base—making it easier to switch between both modes.

12 StayGo South mini USB-C Hubs for $59: Regardless of the iPad model, ports are limited. This hub from Twelve South features an 85-watt USB-C port with pass-through charging, a USB-A port, HDMI, and a headphone jack. If you have trouble fitting the case to your iPad, the included socket-USB-C-to-plug-USB-C cable will fix this.
