I'm not a big fan of some of Apple's latest software updates which changed the layout of iTunes on my devices. I still prefer the version that iOS 7 retains on this refurbished device which I bought on Overstock.com.
I recently upgraded to the 2017 iPad from a much earlier version (iPad 2) and am so happy I did. I've not had any issues with lag like other non-Apple tablets, and so far it has ran everything I've thrown at it. The features of the newer iOS didn't take long for me to become accustomed to. One thing I *really* like about iPads is that apps don't eat through the internal storage, and both backups & photos are saved on the cloud automatically - so I can access my pics from my pc on the fly. The battery life on this is amazing - again, so much better than the non-Apple tablets I'm accustomed to, and it's fairly equivalent to the iPad 2 I had. I can stream video services all day & not have to worry about the battery dying (which typically, on a binge-watch-kind-of-day, would be 8-10 hours). It also charges fairly quickly. The camera is pretty decent quality-wise - I won't win any photography awards but it's fine for casual captures. It took me awhile to justify the cost of upgrading, but I'm so very glad that I did. It's now replaced not only my older iPad, but my other non-Apple tablets as well, and has become my go-to-device for almost everything.
I have always bought preowned iPads and loved them and told myself they were perfectly serviceable and worked fine but secretly wanted a new one. Now as many of the apps I use are no longer able to be updated because the IOS on my iPad could no longer be upgraded. I thought it was time to not only move on to a different pad but to buy new for a change. What can I say? I am loving it - not only updating my old apps but adding a few new ones. It supports on demand video and has plenty of memory. Do I need this with already having a laptop and desktop, etc? No, but I am really enjoying it. So easy transferring everything from old iPad. My old iPad 2 would sometimes blink out right in the middle of a game. The sharpness of the picture on this iPad 2017 is superior to previous iPads I've used and is definitely easier on the eyes. Once I decided I wanted to buy new, I did research for the best price and considering the memory of this iPad, I think this was a terrific buy. Very fast delivery and I'm enjoying my new toy.
