The Home Button

The most obvious thing that helps differentiate between iPad models is whether or not there’s a home button under the screen. The iPad Pro 2018, 2020, and 2021 models do not have one, in particular, to offer an almost all-screen design. If your tablet has one, then it means it was released in 2017 or earlier. As for the iPad mini, they have one regardless of the model in your hands. On the iPad side, the last iteration released in 2022 is the only one not to benefit from it.
