Sentiment Score[*] 78%
Reviewers from Digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
This is Apple's 2020 iPad — the 8th generation for those who are counting. The 10.2-inch display is a step down from the iPad Air, though not in its 2160 x 1620 resolution. The iPad benefits the most from the iOS 14 move to have notifications and alerts not take over your entire screen.

Sentiment Score[*] 82%
Reviewers from Pcmag have found the following[***]:
Apple's eighth-generation iPad is a speedy, reliable remote-learning tablet for a time when most schooling is happening at home. Starting at $329 (or $309 for students), it's the least expensive iPad Apple offers. The two-year-old A12 processor is a significant jump in power over the A10 in the previous iPad.

Sentiment Score[*] 80%
Reviewers from Phonearena have found the following[***]:
The 2020 iPad can easily handle any tasks – from writing essays and researching topics simultaneously, to gaming, video editing and even music production. It supports the first generation and Apple's Smart Keyboard accessory, both of which add plenty to the experience. The only significant negatives about the budget iPad is its outdated design and the cost of its accessories.
