The Editor's Choice iPad 2020 uses Apple's new A12 Bionic CPU. According to Apple, the new CPU offers 40% faster CPU performance than its predecessor. It also promises 2x faster graphics. On Geekbench 5, which measures overall performance, the iPad 2020 scored 2,685, which is a big jump from the 2019 model's mark of 1,429. 

In our iPad 2020 review, our new iPad didn't flinch whether we were playing Mortal Kombat, performing edits in Pixelmator, or racing our bike in Sayonara Wild Hearts. However, what impressed us the most was the new iPad's battery life. Apple rates it at 12 hours, but we managed to squeeze out 12 hours and 57 minutes, which trumps the 11:58 battery life we got from the 2019 iPad. 

Overall, the new 2020 iPad is an excellent tablet and an even better value for just about anyone.
