When it comes to choosing an iPad, there is a wide range of options. While the model of iPad is really down to personal preference, it is important to be aware of compatibility with Apple's latest iPadOS (iOS 15) for longer term benefit.
iPadOS 15 is compatible with all iPad Pro Models, iPad Air 2 and later, iPad 5th generation and later, and iPad Mini 4 and later, and was released on 20th September 2021.
The Performa Sports iPad app will work with iOS 12 and above, but iPads that are compatible with the latest iPadOS (iOS 15) offer a number of operating and feature benefits as well as a longer shelf life for the device itself.
Checklist for choosing an Apple iPad:
iOS (Apple’s mobile operating system) - iOS 12 as a minimum (compatibility with iOS 14 & above is recommended)
Storage - more local storage means you can carry more game videos on the iPad
Connectivity - Wifi comes as standard and Cellular is not required
Screen Size - the 9.7-inch or 10.2-inch screen display sizes are ideal but the larger iPad Pro or smaller iPad Mini displays also work fine
