Is it really worth updating your iPad to one of the latest models, such as iPad Pro? The improvements in performance may look good on paper, but do they actually translate into meaningful improvements during real-world use?
Two years ago Apple unveiled its radical new look for its iOS mobile operating system with the release of iOS 7. Not surprisingly, reactions were mixed. Though almost everyone seems to have got used to it, we still get an email or a comment from users once in a while who ask us if there is a way to downgrade to iOS 6.
When iOS 8 was released, users of older devices such as iPhone 4s and iPad 2 had complained about performance problems.
The iPad 2 was introduced in 2011, and the device continues to be sold today at a price of $399, just $100 less than its introduction price. This year, Apple finally will discontinue the iPad 2 according to a report.
Hot on the heels of a $50 discount on the Retina iPad mini, electronics retailer h.h. greg is offering a discount on the iPad Air and other iPad models.
The iPad 2 held its own against the iPad 3 and iPad 4, but the latest sales data from Consumer Intelligence Research Partners suggest interest in the aging tablet is slipping. Instead of the iPad 2, customers are buying up the iPad Air and the iPad mini.
