Before jumping into the latest and cheapest iPad prices, however, it's worth considering the extras that can really make your mobile gaming, or gaming in general, experience better: what about one of the best set of cans from our best PS4 headsets?

Items on these lists are often compatible with mobile devices so you shouldn't have anything to worry about in that respect, and it's these items, along with that new iPad, that will enhance your mobile gaming time with your new or upgraded console and get your 2020 off to a brilliant beginning.

iPad Pro

The biggest and most beastly of the iPad family, the iPad Pro is a glorious piece of kit which can reach the size of what feels like a small television. It's our favourite gaming tablet due to its seamless and effortless performance that's only matched in excellence by the lovely, lovely display.


This is the 'regular' iPad - the iPad that comes up if you just talk about or search for an 'iPad'. This finds itself in the middle of the pack on size, coming in at around the 9 or 10 inch size. A wonderful tablet that'll give you that famous Apple performance.

iPad Air

The iPad Air is for those who want a bit more than the regular tablet. It has a superior display, a super-fast chipset that matches the latest versions of the iPhone, and a higher resolution front-facing camera to up the ante on the picture/selfie front.

iPad Mini

The littlest of the bunch but still a great device. This is a lovely tablet for those of us with smaller hands - and that extends to little humans too. It'll still give you that great performance we expect from an Apple slab but won't take up the same space as its larger siblings.
