    Just wondering which devices will be able to handle the new software.

    No, iPad mini 3 won't support iPadOS.

    It’s crazy iPad Air 2 is still supported almost 5 years in its life cycle. It was such a significant jump in specs (double the ram, triple core).

    I just sold my cracked screen iPad Air 2 cellular 64gb (got it free from work). My 4 year old son must have dropped it 500 times from 2014-2019. That thing was almost indestructible.

    Loved that iPad. It’s like iPad 2.

    Wonder what people consider the “next iPad” who’s support will last 5 plus years PLUS run well. That’s the key. Running well

    iPad 10.5?/12.9 iPad Pro second gen?

    Yup. I bought iPad 2, iPad Air 2, and 2nd generation iPad Pro 10.5”. My next purchase will likely be the 4th generation iPad Pro 11”, hopefully with 6 GB RAM.

    Given the first generation 12.9” iPad Pro came with 4 GB iPad in 2015, and the 3rd generation got some models with 6 GB, it makes sense it will go 6 GB across the board the next time around.

    Don't forget the GPU (I think 2-3x as fast as Air 1).

    The Air 2 was way better than iPad 2. The 3-year old iPad 2 performed worse than a 3-year old Air 1.

    The Air 2 may have been the first to break the barrier but I reckon 5+ years will be standard moving forward (perhaps with the exception of basic iPads which shipped with already 2 year old chipsets).

    Was your son 4 years old throughout 2014-2019? If he’s 4 now, how could he have dropped your iPad in 2014? I mean he must have been at least 1 or 2 before he could handle an iPad, no? If he was 4 in 2014, he should be 8 or 9 now.

    I’m confused.

    Yes. He was 4 back than. He’s 9 now. So he used it for close to 5 years. Dropped it a ton of times throughout the years.
