Yep that’s my only issue, the battery is at 77%. Its like $100 to replace it.On mine right now. Still holds up well. Only downside is the battery is starting to show its age but for my light reading at night and watching videos , it’s perfect for my needs.
Can’t you just slap on any recent iPad 5th-6th gen Smart Cover? Did they really move the magnets around?We are still using two Air2s and are now running IPadOS.
The biggest annoyance is that Apple no longer make the smart covers for them and I am having to fix the old covers with glue once in a while. I have looked for alternatives but nothing compares for simplicity and versatility.
Nope - bought one on recommendation at an Apple Store but took it back. The slight design difference means newer covers won't work as a stand in landscape mode for Air 2. That is one of my main uses of the cover.Can’t you just slap on any recent iPad 5th-6th gen Smart Cover? Did they really move the magnets around?
Seems any Smart Cover for 9,7” except the Pro should work, however the magnetic lip was a bit thicker on gen 1 iPad Air covers so they fit but in a slightly less elegant manner (according to zollotech on YouTube). Don’t know if they kept the thinner lip anyway for the more recent 5th/6th gen covers. It would make sense if they did for the Air 2’s sake.
There really isn't any benefit to staying on iOS 12, save for a few bugs and incompatibilities with specific apps (until those apps get updated).I do and it’s still thankfully running iOS 12
I’m keeping it on that as long as possible
