The quiet voice emanating from the back simply says "can I have a go on the iPad?" Gone are the days of I-spy and Top Trumps, for most rear-seat occupants on a long journey, a tablet is essential. It'll allow them to watch TV shows, read magazines (preferably CAR) and even surf the web all on one device. Being able to mount them in the rear will aid comfort too, and there are two main ways to do this.

Option one is to look at the top end of the market (Bentleys, high-end BMWs, etc) and make sure you spec the rear entertainment packages that include touch-screen tablets built into the front headrests. Admittedly, this is an expensive option which may put some people off. Spending £100,000 on a BMW 7-Series for the benefit of some screen mounts isn't the best financial advice. The best choice is to look for aftermarket iPad car mounts, something we've done so you can shop with confidence.
And don't worry Android fans, most of these iPad mounts can easily accommodate other tablets, as well as Nintendo Switches, smartphones and even portable DVD players.
