Why buy an iPad for your creative projects? When it comes to drawing tablets, you may be inclined to go with a product from Wacom or XP-Pen or Huion – all excellent brands. However, Apple's family of tablets shouldn't be overlooked by designers, especially considering the smooth precision of the Apple Pencil and the myriad drawing apps available.

Of course, there's the matter of cost. Apple products don't come cheap and the iPad is no exception.

Then there's the stellar quality for which Apple is known – with the iPad, you get what you pay for.
