Ok this is the deal, can anyone tell me with certainty if an Apple I Pad  (5th Gen) 32 GB wi-fi do the job of downloading the DJI GO 4 app?

Don't see why not, I'm using an IPAD mini 2 WIFI version. I've been using it for over an year, with no issues.

Hi, Picanoc Jack, the Apple I Pad  (5th Gen) 32 GB wi-fi is not on the compatible mobile device list of the Mavic pro: https://www.dji.com/mavic/info#downloads, the performance is unable to be guaranteed, you can have a try.

It’s comparable if it runs latest version of iOS..  Apple manages compability not the developers.. once dev has opted for iPhone and iPad versions Apple then handle all backend compability.. basic end on devices ability to run min specs for the os needed.    that’s how iOS works it’s a highly unified OS..  

Basically this means say dji submitted an iPad version to Apple with min spec needed being iOS 11..  any iPad running iOS 11 will be able to utilize the app even if it’s a bit slow..

technically on iPads if you have a direct link to iPhone version as well and running same min OS Apple allows iPads to install iPhone version as well and just runs it via a scaler..that’s how unified the OS is.. not like android where there is legitimate concern if compatibility one device to the next sometimes depending on hardware/software.

If it's the Apple IPad I think it is, it won't.  Really need model number to be sure - one way or other.

If you already have it, give it a try.  
If you are looking to buy it, get Model number of it from Settings / General / About menu.  Then check whether GO4 will support it.  
Worlds of caution, if a SmartTablet or SmartPhone can barely run GO4 now, that does not mean device will be able to run GO4+, GO5.

Issue is, the iPad or iPhone might run GO4 app, but that does not mean iPad or iPhone has enough horsepower to keep up with load put on it by GO4 app when drone is flying, sending back video, and trying to store the video.

That is why people need to go by blessed device list put out by DJI.  
I would never go with bare minimum on DJI's blessed list.  Always better to have some spare CPU cycles, large caches, extra memory, better graphics co-processor, etc.  Factoring in, you are putting a $1,000 or more drone on the line.
