    I'm thinking it is due to the hardware and performance. Just like other OS's before it... sometimes support has to be dropped somewhere.

    It's the hardware. It has half the RAM of most current iPads, and a much slower processor.

    Old hardware I imagine. A5 just wasn't built for it, and there is no way they can do it on 512MB memory.

    1.It doesn't have the RAM (512MB vs 2GB in the Air 2)
    2. Old A5 chip with weaker graphics capabilities (compared to the Air 2)
    3. Lack of Retina Screen makes it really fuzzy to look at

    Because the mini 1 is just a smaller iPad 2. It has outdated hardware that really isn't capable of this.
