    I can only assume you mean to say that the models you mentioned are the ones you think will be supported via iOS 8. Is that correct?

    Welcome to iMore Smellylemon.

    Not sure about the iPad 2 getting the update for iOS 8.
    I've had more people complain about the iPad 3 lagging on iOS 7 than the iPad 2 on iOS 7 so it's interesting...

    I doubt every piece of hardware with specs below the first iPad Mini will get iOS 8.

    I think he meant he woulnd't upgrade till he could JB.

    Sticking to OP I think any device with an A5 or up will get iOS8, mostly due to the iPad Mini still being sold, and I don't see a rMini taking that price point just yet.

    iPad 2 will NOT join the IOS 8 party. It's life cycle was ended (discontinued as in) even though that the iPad 2 has acceptable hardware to run the new OS.

    Correct me if I am wrong but iPad 2 is the same spec as iPad mini. I think people who bought into the mini will be a bit annoyed if apple don't upgraded them to iOS 8 this I turn means iPad 2 should also benefit. I do agree iPad 2 is about at the end of its life but with the mini sharing many parts this maybe the final iOS for it.
    I know if I had a 2 I would not be that worried but if I had a mini that I maybe only had 2 years as a posed 4 for the 2, I would not be happy. Just my thoughts

    IOS upgrades depend on its lifecycle of the said devices and not on its hardware.

    I think you are probably correct, but for the record, Apple's policy on upgrades would leave the iPhone 5 out of the upgrade cycle. iPad 2 by this same policy should not have got anything past iOS 5 though, so it's a policy they regularly violate to the consumers benefit. There is always the possibility that they will invoke their written policy on this matter though and leave out the iPhone 5 and anything contemporaneous or previous to it.

    All they have said on paper about upgrades (their policy) is that a device should get all the point upgrades to the OS it shipped with, the next full number update, and all the point updates associated with that second OS. iPhone 5 shipped with iOS 6 lest we forget, and iPad 2 shipped with iOS 4.

    I think hardware plays a big part, the iPad OG got dropped really quickly compared to the iPhone 4 since it had 256mb ram.

    I believe due to the dual core A5 chip in the iPad 2 and mini 1st gen they will still get iOS 8. They can run iOS 7 after all the design changes and considering iOS 8 will only be having features being added I doubt it will tax the older generation hardware much more but probably will lack some of the new additions.
