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.
