I currently have an iPad 3, bought just after release, almost two years ago. However, since iOS 7 was released, it's experienced significant slowdown and it's now become and essentially unusable device. Especially when you see it next to my iPhone 5s. Therefore, I'm extremely exited to get a new iPad which will bring all the new features to it. I've been planning to get one for a while, but like most, was expecting the new iPad to be a modest upgrade above the iPad Air. However, I now think that feature wise, it's looking like this could be a bigger upgrade than the iPad Air. Remember, the iPad Air only really had two main features. - New Design - A7 Chip However, for the new iPad Air, it looks like it's going to have a plethora of new features. - Retina HD Display - A8X Chip - 8 MegaPixel Camera - Touch ID - Apple Pay - Split Screen MultiTasking - Gold Option - 2GB RAM This really does make for a really significant upgrade, and in my opinion, a bigger upgrade than the iPad Air was. Essentially the iPad Air was about cramming as much about an iPad 4, with a Retina Display ect.. Into a far thinner design. Whilst this is about adding further technologies to it whilst making it thinner again. What do you think? Are you not excited to get a new iPad?
