We are currently a 3 iPad household: 2012 iPad 2 with 16 GB storage and 512 MB RAM 2014 iPad Air 2 with 64 GB storage and 2048 MB RAM 2014 iPad Air 2 with 64 GB storage and 2048 MB RAM One of those iPad Air 2s is mine and I use it frequently, and the the other is my wife's, although lately it's become the kids' iPad, along with their iPad 2. Although the iPad 2 is uber slow, it still plays Netflix cleanly, but in the last year or two we've noticed that Netflix hangs a lot requiring us kill all apps besides Netflix and/or reboot to make Netflix work properly. Moreover, the kids are complaining about the iPad 2. So it seems appropriate to finally retire that iPad 2 for most usage, and let each kid have an iPad Air 2. Both are 64 GB and they have headphone jacks, and I had purchased for them each a set of wired Bose noise-cancelling headphones for the plane. This is a great babysitter on the plane. That means I want a new iPad for myself. It seems Apple is trying to extract as much money from people at the high end, but that's fine with me since I won't bother with one. I'm looking at the next non-Pro 10" iPad. My predictions for a new non-Pro 10" iPad: 2019 release (or at latest 2020) New design, with smaller bezel 4G LTE option. No 5G support 3 GB RAM (or 4 GB if we're lucky) Starts at 32 GB RAM, with 128 GB option No headphone jack Apple A11 Bionic 8-bit display, 264 ppi IPS Retina, not P3 and not TruTone, and with no anti-reflective coating USB-C connector Supports Apple Pencil 2nd generation Improved rear camera with 4K HEVC recording No home button Face ID Two speakers Bluetooth 5.0 Gold, Silver, Space Gray Not sure how many of these predictions will turn out to be true, but I won't buy another iPad until it gets more than 2 GB RAM, and I'm pretty sure this will have more than 2 GB RAM. IMO, RAM is the best indicator of longevity. I refused to buy the crippled-at-launch iPad, and waited for the RAM to double for the iPad 2. For the Retina iPads I skipped the 1 GB models and waited for the 2 GB iPad Air 2. And now I will skip all 2 GB models, and get a 3 or 4 GB iPad.
