I am thinking about gifting a tablet to mom. She uses her mobile a lot for YouTube, WhatsApp and Zoom meetings.
Any tablet would do but as she is currently using an iPhone I thought it would be easier to use an iPad.
What do you guys think, is it worth it?

Any light weight tablet (~10") with decent performance ( Mid range processor? ) & a good screen should do
.
Ipad 8th gen (25-30k for 32GB WIFI) is a decent option
Android, I think Tab S6 sells for 35-40k (w/ bank offers) during sale days

There are budget ones (most popular & sold) by Lenovo (#1 Tablet seller in india)
Tab M10 FHD Plus (15-20k) variant is good but lacks Netflix HD certification
+ Lenovo doesn’t have a very good track record with Software updates.. max u will get one major android update

The good option (P11 pro) costs 45k.. everything is good except the midrange processed used (SD 73X)

Memory is not much of an issue as she doesn’t download much. Only some YouTube videos.

Samsung used to sell A7 WIFI for 14-15k few months back (Renewed for ~10k)
Now, they’ve launched a new variant (just upgraded the storage from 32 to 64GB) and selling it for 19k rolleyes

get the ipad, airdropping and managing stuff between iphone nd ipad makes life a lot easier.. android tabs will eventually start lagging.. ipad 7 if you can get it under 20k and 8th gen goes for 26k if you have hdfc cc – check croma online/offline store..

iPad is definitely a very good choice over Android. Hangs less, apps load faster and run faster, easy to install and manage apps, lots of accessibility options are there especially bigger font size, contrast colors, dark theme, etc. which are very helpful for elder people. The only issue is the weight. iPads are really bulkier than the Android tabs.
Also, don’t forget to buy a really good case for your treasured iPad to protect it from sudden drops or falls. I strongly recommend going for the Spigen cases.

P.S. If you can stretch your budget, definitely go for iPad Air, the lightest tablet that I have ever tried my hands on.
