Hi, my first device was an iPad 4 (that I still have) on iOS 6 and I thought it was superlatively good, I couldn’t believe a company in the real world could produce a product with such an attention to details and performance throughout a whole operating system! Then, eight months later iOS 7 came out and made me lose a great deal of respect for Apple. iOS 8 and 9 made me lose even more consideration for their current software. So I’m trying to find an iPad 4 with iOS 6 on it. My best trail right now is someone selling her never-opened iPad 4 (though she wants a high price for it, not sure I can have her sell it to me at a reasonable price), but what I am afraid of is this: does Apple sell devices with an updated operating system? What I am afraid of is this is that this is an iPad sold after March 2014 and that it has iOS 7 on it. If that’s the case, is there a way to check at which date an iPad has been manufactured? If anybody know of a magic trick to get an iPad 4 with iOS 6, I’d love to hear it! In the meantime, I’m hunting my country (France)’s most popular classified media site to try to find an iPad 4 with iOS 6 still on it, but that’s quite an undertaking.
