Is It Worth Upgrading From The Original iPad?

Only you can decide whether it’s really worth upgrading your iPad if you already own one. You’re not going to notice any major changes, and many of them can be seen simply by upgrading your old iPad to the newest operating system.

That said, if you love technology then you’ll definitely want to upgrade for the faster performance, and some of the newest features such as the two cameras, improved gameplay thanks to the new gyroscope, and new apps such as iMovie for putting together your own videos and home movies. In fact the camera alone could be worth it if you’ve been waiting for it ever since the first iPad was released. You’ll also want to consider the fact that you can recoup some of the costs by selling your old iPad if it’s in good condition.

Pros And Cons Of The iPad 2

But if you’ve ever played with a friend’s iPad then you’ll know what I’m talking about. All of your reservations go out of the window once you get your hands on it and start playing with all of the apps.

In all seriousness, the iPad 2 has found a huge, unexpected market. On the one hand it’s an extremely capable productivity device, used by business people all over the world to keep up with emails, check appointments and work on documents.
