The iPad 5, (also known as the fifth-generation iPad, or iPad 2017) was released, as the name implies, in 2017. It was positioned as a lower cost replacement for the iPad 4 and the iPad Air 2, and was initially aimed at educators and businesses, who were looking to equip their personnel with no-frills but efficient tablets for routine usage, at an affordable price. Among the many potential uses, it was envisaged that the iPad 5 would be ideal for use by commercial checkout and kiosk operators, shop floor assistants, and to operate as hospitality terminals in restaurants and other leisure premises, and by the education sector.
With a 9.7-inch screen, the iPad 5 was similar in dimensions and mass to the original iPad Air, and was faster and more powerful than the iPad Air 2, and all the previous iPad models. Marketed at the time as the lowest-priced iPad ever, reviewers praised the improved performance, especially when compared to older iPad models, and were welcoming of the improved battery life and the lower price. The iPad 5 was, however, criticised because it did not support Apple Pencil or a detachable keyboard. It also faced comments that it was not equipped with a laminated and anti-reflective screen, although the display was actually 25% brighter than the iPad Air 2 according to Apple statistics.
The fifth-generation iPad was designed to be a workhorse - destined for use in all kinds of business, education or leisure situations, and therefore intended to be in constant operation. Maybe you need to use yours during a lesson or for homework. Perhaps it’s needed to demonstrate a product to a client, or take an order, or you’re simply surfing the net and checking emails – whatever the situation, you need it to be ready and fully operational. In all these kinds of scenarios, tablet computers are invaluable, but they are also vulnerable – they get knocked over, dropped, trodden on and drinks spilled on them – anything could happen.
