Hi Kelvin,

These days it's not best practise to have device specific CSS unless it's to fix an issue with that device, nowadays it's better to have 3 main breakpoints which consist of the following.

  • small (typically from 0px up to 640px)
  • medium (typically from 641px up to 1024px)
  • large (typically from 1025px up to 1440px)

The advantage to using media queries such as these is we allow the site to expand and contract naturally without forcing it to go a certain way which can lead to a broken design on smaller devices, it's not exactly the answer you were looking for but hopefully this will help you get things working better between your iPad and Nexus.
