The home button
The most obvious thing that makes it possible to differentiate diPad models is the presence or absence of a button on the screen.
The iPad Pro 2018 models do not have any, but they offer an almost all-out design.
If your iPad has one, then that means it came out in 2017 or before.
USB Type-C, Lightning Connector and 30 Pin
To identify your iPad, you can also refer to their connector, Lightning or 30 pins. The latter only concerns iPad 3 and 4th generation.
With the photo below, find out what a USB Type-C port looks like, of which only the iPad Pro 2018 are dots.
The Lightning port is smaller than the 30 pin.
It is easy to distinguish an iPad Pro from others because it is equipped with 4 speakers, located at the top and bottom.
The other models have only 2 speakers, placed right and left of the connectors.
IPads equipped with a Retina notch offer a much better resolution than the others (1st, 2nd and 3rd generation).
And, from late 2012 (iPad 4), this type of screen has become the norm for all.
3G, 4G or Wi-Fi connection
IPads are also distinguished by their connectivity. Some only have Wi-Fi, others combine WiFi and data (via a micro-SIM card).
These were developed from the 3rd generation, early 2012.
The last thing that will help you identify your iPad is its storage capacity (32 GB, 64 GB, 128 GB or 256 GB).
To find this information, go to General information capacity.
If it has a space of 512 GB, then you are in possession of a iPad Pro 2017. You just have to measure it to determine if it is the version 10.5 inches or 12.9 inches.
LiPad 2018 is the latest iOS tablet. This iPad 6th generation has a memory of 32 GB or 128 GB, its screen size is 9.7 inches. It is compatible with the Apple Pencil.
