    Default Will you upgrade from the iPad Air to the iPad Air 2?

    When the iPad Air 2 come out in October, will you or will you not upgrade to it?

    I can't decide!

    No I'll keep my iPad Air. Using a smart case and wanting my screen to unlock when I open, I could care less about Touch ID. And the processor seems plenty fast enough. I'm good.

    I have a Mini with Retina, but I won't be upgrading to the Mini with Retina 2 or the Air 2. The A7 is plenty fast for the next 2 years at least.

    No.
    Right now I'm having problems with Apple ID and iTunes, enough of a headache for me to consider leaving Apple, but if my problems are solved today, and I can stay with Apple, I am keeping my iPad Air.
    I really don't care for the Touch ID thing, and I really like my iPad as it is, right now.
    I have no complaints about the battery life and I love the speed.

    What I will NOT do, however, is upgrade to IOS8 for at least several months IF I see that people like it: I learned that the hard way with IOS7 on my old iPad, lol.

    My iPad 3 is still going strong for me but I will probably pick one up and pass the 3 on to my kids. They use it as much as I do as it is. I'll just make it official.

    My thinking now is that when a new iPad Air is announced, I will be looking to buy the original iPad Air at a discount and sell my iPad2.

    No. Touch ID isn't enough to make me upgrade. My iPad Air is working very well so I don't see the need to replace it. I will get the new iPad mini retina though.

    No, I'll keep my iPad Air. It's running beautifully and I don't see it having any problems in the future. I'll end up keeping it for at least 3 years.

    If it all becomes true and all these new devices come out besides the iPhone 6 of course it is going to be interesting on whether one should ditch their mini r like me and get a new air if one comes out with significant changes that the first one.

    These are going to be some nard questions to ask and decide what to do. I have really become accustomed to my mini r. I only wish I would have bought with my carrier and not just WIFI.

    There's only speculation that it will be announced in October, but I'm in a similar situation. I've been using the iPad Mini for almost a year, for work & play, and am on the fence about bumping up to an Air.

    Wait or buy....

    Not sure. I love my Air and it does everything I need it to. But I'm an Apple junkie so I may sell the Air for an Air 2 if hubby doesn't complain too much. My kids have minis and I just prefer the full size. But except for TouchId the Air isn't lacking at all. I mainly use it around the house and only keep a passcode on it to keep my kids off of it so I just have a 4 digit passcode which isn't too bad. My 5S I have a long complicated passcode because I have TouchId and rarely need to enter it.
    TLDR…the current Air will do everything you need unless Touch ID is important to you.

    I don't see that there'd be new options that could tempt me.

    Maybe if suddenly RAM became an issue, but my Air runs really nicely for now -- it isn't like how iOS 7 made my iPad 2 run a little choppier. As long as iOS 8 runs fine on the Air -- and if it doesn't, that's when I'd get really angry at Apple TBH -- I see no particular reason for an upgrade. An Air with LTE and 128 GB of storage is enough for anyone.

    Maybe by the Mini 4th Generation I'll upgrade, but upgrading iPads every year just seems like too much money to me. An new iPhone every year is somewhat reasonable, but a new iPad every year isn't realistic for me at least.

    Depending what on the specs of the Air-2, then I might.

    At this time, no plans to upgrade. My iPad Air works great, it was expensive, and given Apple's penchant for iterative, rather than revolutionary upgrades to its devices, I doubt any new features will be announced (Touch ID notwithstanding) that will make iPad Air 2 a "must have," especially for those with an iPad Air. Of course, if Apple surprises everyone with a revolutionary take on tablets, I reserve the right to change my mind...;-)

    More and likely I'll upgrade to the iPad Air 2 to replace my 4th Gen, especially if it has the TouchID. I love my 4th gen but after messing with the Air, it makes mine feel like a brick, plus I love the design of the Air.
