iOS 10 will make 40% of all iPads obsolete
"Here's an interesting fact: every iPad that Apple had sold, with the exception of the iPad 1 (which first went on sale in April 2010 and was discontinued a year later, and over that time some 15 million units were sold), can run the latest iOS release.
At Monday's WWDC 2016 keynote speech, that all changed.
Apple announced that it was dropping support for three aging iPads: the iPad 2, the iPad 3 and the first-generation iPad mini.
That means that come autumn when iOS 10 is released, millions of iPads will become obsolete. How many? Well, according to data compiled back in March 2016 by mobile engagement platform Localytics, it could mean that some 40% of all iPads currently in use will become obsolete because they will no longer receive security updates and patches.”
