As the above list reveals, there are now a great many different makes and models of iPad on the market. As such, it is difficult to produce an overall review covering the features and functionality of all models. Instead of that, therefore, we are going to focus on the general strengths and weaknesses of iPads when it comes to using betting apps.
Why Is It Good for Betting Apps?
As well as some bookmakers offering a specific iPad betting app for download, the iOS mobile apps offered by basically all online betting providers will also work on Apple’s premier tablet. What that means is that, unlike users of some types of mobile device, punters with an iPad will always have a choice of either a downloadable or a web-based mobile betting option. That is the most notable of a handful of factors which make iPads good for betting on the move.
A further notable advantage which iPads offer for mobile betting is their increased screen size and quality. That makes it far easier, after all, to view a greater range of information at the same time and is particular good when it comes to watching a live stream or viewing live scoring information whilst also perusing available betting markets.
Why Isn’t It Good for Betting Apps?
For a long time after the launch of iPhones, iPads and other Apple mobile devices, the company’s App Store did not allow the inclusion of betting apps. That, therefore, was a notable disadvantage of iOS operated devices when it came to betting on the move. Fortunately, however, that is no longer the case and, as such, there are few real weakness of the iPad as a device for mobile betting. Depending upon the particular model of iPad a punter owns, however, one small weakness is that their tablet is probably a little less portable than some other mobile devices.
iPads are a line of tablet computers developed, manufacturers and sold by tech giants Apple Inc. The tablets all run the company’s iOS mobile operating system and the first generation iPad was released on the 3rd April 2010. The most recent iterations of the tablet, the 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro (2017) devices, were launched in June of 2017. In the seven years between the launch of the first iPad and the release of those latest models, the iPad has become unquestionably one of the most popular tablets in the world.
Each different generation of iPad achieved huge worldwide sales and within less than five years of the release of the first iPad, Apple had sold over 250 million of the tablets. Sales of iPads peaked, however, back in 2013 and since then Apple have seen Android operated tablets eat into their popularity and market share. At time of writing, in fact, iPads are the second most popular type of tablet computers behind Android operated devices.
Interestingly very few bookmakers have dedicated iPad betting apps and instead most offer a general iOS option to punters… and given the market share decline for Apple in the tablet world we can’t see this changing any time soon.
