Debating A New iPad Model
Hello to the applevis community! I am looking into purchasing a new iPad since my 1st gen mini cannot receive the 9.2 update. If you were going to upgrade, would you go with a 4th gen mini or an iPad air 2? I have heard of some problems with the original iPad air and bluetooth, as well as some VoiceOver quality issues, so has anyone else exxperienced this in the 2nd gen air? I will also carry the new iPad in a bt keyboard case, so does anyone have any suggestions for cases for either iPad version? Thanks in advance for all of your help! :)
It depends on which screen size you want. The iPad Air 2 and Mini 4 are nearly the same as far as I know. The only thing that is different is the screen size. So, get the Mini 4 if you want a smaller screen. As for 9.2, it should be able to be installed on the original Mini. I don't own an iPad, so can't say all this for sure. I hope this helps.
I have the iPad mini 2 I still can upgrade to iOS 9.2. Like Chris said it depends on the screen size and portability
I don't know if it would affect your decision, but the First Generation iPad Mini is in fact able to run iOS 9.2. If you're not able to update it, please feel welcome to create a new forum topic and we'll try and help you get it figured out.
I never liked a big screen, so I would get the Mini.
Thanks for the info! I was able to download the update, but there is no button that says install. The name of the update is also dimmed. I did some research and read that only the iPad mini with retina display can run the 9.2 update, but perhaps I was miss informed?
