iPad Sales Down

3 posts in this topic

I heard on the news yesterday that iPad sales were down and Apple lowered there prices to help jumpstart sales for the iPad. I have an iPad3 (older one) that still works good and never had any problems out of it. One down side to the iPad (not sure about the newer ones) that the WiFi signal sucks. iPads are good for checking emails, browsing the web, taking photos, playing a few games but other then that, I find it not useful for anything. One great thing about the iPad though is battery life. I can use it all day long before charging it. I find the iPad great for traveling. 

Would I buy an iPad again? Actually I would. It is very convenient for checking and replying to emails, checking the weather, FaceTime, taking photos while traveling, and checking the website without having to turn on my computer or laptop. My iPad stays on all the time. I never turn it off.

Always on and bigger than phone, that is the reason of using tablets. But doing some useful, not much.

But, good that they needed to lower the price (I also noticed)... iPad Pro looks good, but it too close of a good computer prices. We still have iPad 3 (the same as you) here in use (16gb sucks), but I am personally using Android nowadays.

I had thought about buying another one but I am waiting till my iPad3 dies 1st or becomes totally worthless. It has been dropped and the glass of course broke and now has a dent by the speaker. Had the glass replaced and can't tell the glass was ever broke but the dent by the speaker couldn't be fixed. I went with the 32GB iPad because I knew 16GB would be too small over time. And I sure wasn't going to pay for what they wanted for the 64GB one. 

I think prices were a bit too high for the iPad. Like you mentioned, you can buy a nice laptop or desktop for the price. Can't remember for sure as it was a while back ago, but I think I paid $500-$600 for mine. I can't say it was a waste of money. My wife and I use it every single day for checking things quickly and we both use it on the treadmill too. Actually, as much as we have used it, I can't believe it still works and still holds a battery charge.
