iPad 8 (2020)! Unboxing and Initial Impressions!

by birtanpublished on October 2, 2020

The ipad has been pushed into its eighth generation that's pretty that's pretty crazy can you believe that there's been eight generations of this thing i love i love the ipad so what comes in the box and is it any good let's find out what's up everyone i'm the everyday dad and if i can figure it out you can figure it out so it should come as no surprise to anybody that i love the ipad i'm a gigantic gigantic fan of ipads in all ways shapes and forms i really like what they've been doing and i used an ipad

7th generation for a very long time until i did end up getting my ipad pro so let's see what we get with the eighth generation ipad i mean honestly i don't think there's gonna be a lot that we're gonna see difference wise but i am excited nonetheless so we do have the 32 gigabyte ipad 8th generation wi-fi model let's crack it here we go are you ready all right let's set this aside what i'm curious about we'll set you over here

For a second what comes in the box because apple has announced they're going to start being a little more environmental and not including so many accessories like with their apple watch and i feel like that will start trickling down to all things but as we can see we do have a usbc to lightning charger which i mean is nice if this is your first ipad and i also like that it's usbc i'm kind of over like usba would i have preferred to see usbc just

All over the place on this instead of lightning at all yes i would have very much liked to have seen that but you know you gotta you gotta get what you get so here we go we do have the charging cable do we get any cool stickers stickers no no stickers oh let me tell you fam i was nervous there for a second we weren't gonna get any stickers but thank goodness apple thank you for coming through i gotta start putting these stickers on i'm so excited to get stickers

I gotta make sure we actually start putting them on places we've got the instructions all right thank you for that thank you for that all right all that boring stuff out of the way let's get to the ipad it does feel i mean it is basically the exact same chassis as last year's model so that should not come as any surprise all of the big changes are going to be under the hood but this is still i know a lot of people don't like the older apple design

Aesthetic with the big bezels but i still i mean i love how these look like this ipad and all ipads like the power that's on hand here is just insane and the thing that i still like on the older generation of apple design as opposed to the new stuff i mean sure the new stuff has tiny bezels very high quality displays very high refresh rates but it doesn't have touch id touch id is so important to me like in the world where we have to wear masks all the time now like touch id is king and this feels fantastic like

This just feels like a good high quality apple device we do still have the smart connector on the bottom so the smart keyboard should work nothing else one camera let's turn it on let's see does it actually come with ipad os straight out of the box because there is a new version of the ipad operating system there's a new version of mac operating system there's a new version of the iphone operating system so let's see if we actually get ios english united states

Uh we'll set it up manually uh we'll do this i don't really want to do any of this all right fine we'll set it up you guys don't get to see my wi-fi password it may take a few moments to activate my ipad glad i'm not in any bit of a hurry you'd think this wouldn't come as a surprise to me as we unbox technology all the time establishing it should not surprise me but sometimes it always like as i sit down i'm like wait all right we do want i don't want you guys to see my fingerprint i'm kidding

Touch id easily is something that needs to come back and one of the things that i'm most excited about the ipad air version 4 it's going to have touch id built into the on off switch which i hope they do really well because i'm very excited so i had to walk back over to my macbook to allow my apple id to be used on this and here's something exciting here's something exciting do you know which password i always have the hardest time remembering my apple id because you're always like you never actually

Use it it just the phone automatically remembers it so it's like yeah remember my apple id and then when you need to type it in again i always have to reset it but this time i didn't small victories small victories you you saw it here first gary actually remembered his apple id password that that deserves some celebration right there man this does i mean this display even though it is the older display it just looks good what other we don't need pay what

Other computer or period what other device can you get for like 320 bucks that looks this good widgets okay so we do have ipad os straight up built into this about gary's ipad software version 14. so we do have ipad os 14 straight up built into this and it feels not now i mean look it's pretty like it's pretty darn fast like this is an intuitive device we got all of the widgets we've got our

New stories we've got our battery life that's my favorite my favorite widget having used ipad os on my other ipad this battery widget is amazing because it not just shows very clearly the battery life of the ipad it also very clearly shows all of the battery life of everything attached to it so like if you have air pods one of the problems i always have trying to figure out like how much battery life do my airpods actually have you can see it right here it's great it's great what other widgets

Do we have access to one thing that i don't necessarily like as much about the ipad os implementation of widgets are you can't put widgets on the home screen you only get widgets in this little thing on the side here so what we just do we have calendar photos maps music podcasts notes the smart stack if you don't know what smart stack is it's the widget that will show you all of the widgets so you you don't have to have all sorts of stuff cluttering up this little side tab

You just have smart stack and swipe through them all the files widget is was a newer widget um and it's it's a way that apple's trying to get after one of the biggest complaints of using an ipad and that's the file system yeah i was kind of really hoping that maybe by the time that ipad os was officially released they'd let us actually put widgets here on the home because you can do that on ios 14 you can put all your widgets here and it just makes i think it makes more sense to have

Widgets on the home screen of the ipad because you get so much more real estate here than you do on the like the phones even the biggest phone does not come close to how big this ipad is but no i think it let's how does that let's find out let's really quickly go to youtube.com see how the speakers sound after the microsoft duo i have a problem with trust when it comes to uh mobile device speakers let's go to everyday oh we gotta listen to ads did

You know geico is now microsoft released the very ambitious duo one week ago and in that time those speakers sound pretty good only phone slash tablet which yes it was really hard for me to give up my ipad for a whole week so how well did it hold up is this just a bunch of cool hardware and terrible okay no the speakers sound good which is fantastic everything seems to work great it is ipad os 14 which gives us some really cool additional features over like ipad os

13. we'll have to now that that's out we'll have to get it on our ipad pro but yeah so this has been the unboxing initial impressions i would say initial impressions it's an ipad so while we've got this ipad here let's go to apple.com if they sell the old models refurbished i don't know that you're going to be able to tell the biggest difference refer bits they've got ipad air so they do not sell refurbished 7th generation ipads on the refurbished website if they do

It's not there today so initial impressions are if you were looking for the cheapest way to get into the apple ecosystem for like a computer standpoint and i do absolutely consider the ipad the ipad pro the i consider all the ipad line a legitimate way to get into apple as a computer system um this is going to be the cheapest one you can get again i picked this up for 329 this is the base model i highly recommend

These we'll do more videos and comparisons and stuff as we go along this is just my initial impressions initial impressions are it's a lot like the ipad 7 it's just faster with the newer operating system and you can get it for the exact same price so why wouldn't you what are some things that you would like to see out of the brand new ipad leave me a comment below i would very much we're going to dig into this thing but i'd like to make the video you all want to see so leave me a comment below on what you want to see and we will get to that

And if you liked this video if you liked this video and you're like gary you know what i kind of want to see what else is out there you can go watch that microsoft surface duo video by clicking right over here click click click click click click click thanks for watching
