This means my iPad 3 is going to be completely useless. I bought it in 2012, and admittedly it is quite an old device in today's standards. However, the original battery in it still works for more than 9 hours (I only use this for extremely basic stuffs, so I only charge once a month). Whatever I'm using it for, it is still working perfectly fine and I want to keep this device. However, if Apple forces out 32 bit apps, this iPad will become completely useless. What do you guys think about this? Should Apple be doing this?? I understand that they want progress, but I dont want my devices to be completely useless because of it. I actually think 5 year of service isn't even that long for $600 I've paid for.
