An iPad is a tablet computer that is manufactured and sold by Apple. It runs on Apple’s own iOS operating system and is designed to be more intuitive and user-friendly than a regular tablet. iPads are available in various sizes, with the majority of models featuring a 9.7-inch display. iPads also come with a variety of features, including a camera, accelerometer, gyroscope, and GPS.

Tablets, on the other hand, are generally more versatile than iPads. They can run either Android or Windows operating systems and often have a larger screen size than iPads. Tablets also come with a variety of features, such as a touchscreen, camera, and GPS, but they can also have features like USB ports, HDMI ports, and expandable storage. Tablets are often more powerful than iPads, making them better suited for tasks such as video editing and gaming.
