iPhone/iPod touch Vs. iPad

iOS and iPadOS
Hi, I am currently an iPhone user but am considering purchasing an iPad. I do understand that there are differences between an iPad and an iPhone, however, I am unsure if there are significant differences from a blind perspective. If a person owns an iPhone or iPod is there any reason they should purchase an iPad? Is there anything that the iPad can do that an iPhone or iPod cannot? Are there any helpful iPad only apps? Thanks for your input, Gabriella

There are some music creation apps that are iPad only. While I'm interested in them, my curiosity isn't up to the price of the iPad over my iPod Touch. For me, the convenience of something that can go in a pocket is more important. too.

I find that the people I know who are most happy with an iPad over the other 2 are low vision users. The few blind people I know that have iPads typically have bought them to supplement the use of an iPhone. In other words, they don't want to have to do everything with one device. Good point, but not worth the extra money imho.
