    i am thinking of getting one for my mom. She doesn't care about speed or display quality as much as I do. But I want a device which will be supported at least for 3 more years. Will the Air 2 last that long?

    I'm assuming by EOL you are referring to software support by Apple? The Air 2 should get iOS 11 & iOS 12, and possibly more. That said rumour is that a new budget iPad will be released next month to replace the Air 2 in the lineup. It will probably be sold at the same price as the Air 2 but should receive software support by Apple for 1-2 years longer.

    IPhone 6 will be dropped before the Air 2... I think it will receive iOS 11,12,13,14 and maybe 15
    It has 2gb of ram , and performance it's nearly indentical to iPhone 6S/SE . My guess that it will be supported until 2020 or 2021..
    I will be in the market for a new iPad in 2020. The iPad Air 2 will be the new iPad 2 . If the iPad 2 runs iOS 9 , I think iPad Air 2 can run iOS 15. Hahahaha

    I'm rocking a air 2 quite happily. Once the Pro has better baked in handwriting recognition, then we'll talk about an upgrade but I'm not compelled to an upgrade for either of the current pro offerings

    Air2 will suit, but if you're in no hurry, wait for the annoucement and then decide.
