I suppose just sticking it out with the iPad 4 would be an option. I probably won't be doing it though. I would prefer to have the same OS on my iPhone 6 and my iPad. I'm also not thrilled about the idea of no more security updates on a device I use that much and eventually some apps will require iOS 11. I have also gotten 5 years out of the iPad 4 so I don't feel that bad about upgrading, especially at $329.My wife's iPad 3 still works just fine. Was left behind in s/w updates some time ago. No need to update.
That depends on what you mean by broke, doesn't it?If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
If you have an iPad Pro already not worth it.I bought the 9.7 iPad Pro last year so I'm hoping to wait at least another year before being tempted again. Hopefully the expanded dock and updated task switcher aren't hardware dependent.
I was considering the wifi model over the cellular one too, $20 a month in my opinion is not worth it (AT&T) plus I have my cellphone on me all the times so tethering can be used, I find myself finding wifi spots almost everywhere. Also it's nice to save $150...I liked just about everything I saw, especially the new Mac Pro with 18 cores. Only disappointed that there was no mention at all on the next iphone.
I also have an ipad 3 here that my wife uses. It was an expensive one with 64GB and Verizon cellular. But last year I disabled the phone number altogether since we just use tethering now. Saved $45 a month off my Verizon bill. I haven't checked but it doesn't seem to be restricted. I should check what iOS is is at. I also have the original ipad and the grandkids play a few games on it. My ipad is an air2 and it works great. I now use it as my main screen for my drone.
If Apple offers a full 4K screen on the new iphone 8, I plan on getting one. I need the 4K screen for my VR goggles. The iphone 6+ is just too grainy in the goggles. If Apple doesn't give us a 4K screen, then I plan on buying a Sony that offers a true 4096 UHD HDR screen early next year. Need to do more research on this first.
I was a little confused on the wOS4 as to how much will be supported on the original Apple watch. I know the swimming apps are not supported, only on the watch 2 that has water proof capability but the other new features look really interesting.
harshness- I wouldn't worry too much about the Apple stock. If it goes down to $145, I'll start buying more again. There is just way too much growth potential with Apple. It always falls off after these big announcements then recovers to even higher highs.
I've read they are doing that to some apps that aren't written to support 64 bit.Broke, I suppose, includes an app we use, Mixologist. I gather there is more than one app by that name.
Apple has been warning it is inefficient, wastes memory and should be updated. Now they flat out say it won't work with future OS updates.
Sigh. App seems to have been abandoned.
