I'm going to pose this question for the rest of the iOS family in a bit. For now, I'm focusing this question on the third generation iPad as I happen to have one (two, if you count my father's) that I use for MDM, beta testing, Jailbreaking and other such fun things. If it's likely that iOS 9 will not be supported on the third generation, I will probably look to sell both mine (and my father's) before iOS 9 actually releases so that I can actually get some kind of a monetary return before they are more or less out of date software-wise. That all being said, I'm guessing the attitude here is that anything with an A5 Processor is probably out of the question (given the slow performance of iOS 8 on the iPad 2, first generation iPad mini, fifth generation iPod touch, and the iPhone 4S), but given the fact that the third generation iPad has 1GB in its A5X versus the 512MB that the other A5-based iOS devices have, as well as a substantially better GPU (which, I understand evens out in terms of performance when the retina panel is factored in), I'm wondering which side of the cutoff it will be on. What say you? ---------- For the record, I'm going to guess that it isn't likely. But I'd be more than open to any educated opinions that suggest otherwise (provided there are facts to back it up).
