I've had a launch day ipad that I replaced right away for a light bleed issue. But other then that my ipad 2 is still serving me well. I felt no need to upgrade to the latest models. I'm sure ios8 will be the last upgrade option for iPad 2 users.. I will be looking in 2015 to see if they have anything that will catch my eye. I really like Touch ID and the lighting connector, on my 6 plus, that would be a great addition to my next ipad. Until then my iPad 2 is still pushing along. Who else's ipad 2s are still kicking?
