    Since Apple stopped supporting meaning no software upgrades, it just did not work well with many App.s so it was time to just remove it from service.

    My other older iPad4 is still pretty useful but in no way does it work as well as my new iPadPro, now i plan if the new iPad Apple introduces is getting good reviews, after around six Months it will be my next iPad.

    I don’t blame you. My ipad 3 was terrible on 9.3.5. ipad 4 was livable on 10.3.3 but I decided to trade them both in at Bestbuy a couple years ago and got $275 to use towards an Air2(on sale) which still serves me well to this day.. I’m also waiting to see what Apple releases this month before pulling the trigger on a newer device. To be perfectly honest, I would be satisfied with a 10.5 iPad pro unless the new one blows me away

    What are your plans for the iPad 2? I recently "decommissioned" my iPad 2 and repurposed it to be a dedicated iCade and Duo Pinball device. It runs iMAME and pinball games just fine.

    I still have my iPad 1 which I use as the "picture tube" in a vintage TV that I gutted out and have it playing vintage TV shows and commercials.

    That really was a good offer glad you got that Bestbuy deal, my new iPadPro is a real improvement over my iPad4, i was in my apple store today asked if they knew when the new iPad would happen, told me they would know the same time i found out.

    I just put the ipad2 in it's box for now, i also have two Samsung Anaroid tablets that i put pictures and videos on from my computer a lot simpler then dealing with Apples iTune or the apple i-cloud.
    But i use my iPads a lot when i don't want to mess with the computer, just never really was happy using the Samsung tablets they work good but still i like how the ipads operate.
