TechFriday: Contemplating an iPad upgrade

Posted By on August 1, 2014

Ever since I picked up a secondhand iPad2 a couple years ago, it has been my go-to device for traveling, reading and quick notes. I do miss the full computer experience, but it is hard to beat for day to day mobile computing. Truth be told though, I’m starting to have speed envy and wondering if it might be time to upgrade?


A quick check with MacRumors to see when it might be time to start shopping tells me that this fall could be a good time … and if rumors be true, maybe a little multitasking is coming.

With iOS 8, the existing iPad Air and future versions may gain support for split-screen multitasking, allowing the device to display two apps at once for the first time.
