Also known as Apple iPad 5th Generation Cellular, the iPad Cellular 2017 features a 9.7-inch Retina screen that has a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels -- unsurprisingly one of the best displays in its subcategory (at least on paper) as of mid-2017, while it sports a 32.4Wh battery whose 10-hour usage time may not be the longest of the bunch, but is still respectable given its set of high-end features. That being said, it offers an 8-megapixel rear cam that has both auto-focus and image stabilization features, among others, and sticks to a resolution of only 1.2-megapixels for its selfie shooter.
