5 iPad Models Should Not Buy in 2019
2iPad Air First Generation
The first-generation iPad Air is another model you should not buy in 2019. It has now been six years old from its release in the fall of 2013. While the device can still update to the latest iOS 12.4 version, but similar to iPad Mini 3, Apple will stop the update for iPad Air in September. Thú, it’s a big deal since you cannot get any security updates and your tablet will not be protected when having bugs or malware.
The hardware component of iPad Air is also outdated, and you should better choose an iPad Air 2, or newer iPad Air model if you can afford. They have stronger hardware and are updated to the upcoming iPadOS 13 version in this September.
