    iPad 2 Won't Turn On

    My mother got an iPad 2 in early 2013 and used it until she got an iPad Air 2 in 2016. Around that time, she accidentally dropped the iPad 2 with a cheap case in front of our door step and it cracked the screen, but it still worked fine. After several months to a year, it just stopped turning...

    Remote access for Ipad 2?

    Hi there I bought an Ipad 2 for my mum a while back. She's not the most technologically literate by far and it can be difficult to explain to her how to use it especially since she lives in another county (she knows the bare basics). I also have the same model Ipad 2 and I want to know if...

    I recently bought an iPad 2 from a second hand seller, the iPad works great overall and since I was able to downgrade the firmware on the iPad 2 to IOS 6.1.3, I thought it was a great find. After a few attempts of loading the signed IOS 6 iPsw file I saw no result. I realized that my iPad that I...

    iPad 2 battery question

    I have an iPad 2 that I have probably kept plugged in continuously for 3-4 years as a weather monitor in my kitchen. I noticed the battery was starting to drain and not recharge recently, and discovered I needed a new 30-pin cable, which I replaced. I ran CoconutBattery on my iPad and found...

    iPad 2

    Unfortunately I cannot afford to upgrade my IPad 2. I don’t understand why APPLE stopped allowing updates. I am stuck on IOS 9. It seems a way for Apple to make money. My parents old tv has outlasted two LCD tv’s. Product design from 60’s, 70’s were designed for a lifetime, not what it’s...

    Issue with News App

    Running iOS 11.1.1 on an iPad 2. While reading articles on the News app the app will unexpectedly shut down. When I reopen the app it will go back to a story I had previously read. I think it is doing this while updating but is very annoying. Haven't been able to locate a control to keep it...

    iPad Is a 2nd Generation Ipad (WiFi only) worth keeping?

    Hello, I was in the process of cleaning out my closets and found my old 2nd Generation 16gb Ipad. I didn't find the charger. Do guys think it would be worth it to get a charger? Or you think it's too old to upgrade, in order to be able to use with current OS and current programs? Thank you

    General App Store Nagging to Update an Incompatible App

    An update for an app on my iPad 2 and iPhone 4S (both running 9.3.5) continues to show, even though it is incompatible with both devices. Is this normal? I don't think I've encountered it before, and I'm pretty sure I have some apps that have ceased supporting those devices. I thought that by...
