I've been asked by a friend to help her buy an iPad for her 8yr old son for his birthday around May. He'll be using it mainly for Web, Games and WhatsApp but the family will be using it for Netflix/Prime Video possibly when away on holidays etc, so cellular connectivity is a must. I realise that an iPad refresh is being rumoured for June probably at WWDC. I know the current iPad is a decent enough buy but the screen apparently lets it down when compared to the previous generation, iPad Air 2. You can get some good deals on the Apple Refurb store on an Air 2 with cellular networking, my question though is the Air 2 still a good buy considering it was released back in 2014? I'm still using mine happily enough but I've had my one since launch.
