I got the original iPad when it was first released, back in 2011. I didn't really need one then (does anyone really need an iPad?), but it looked cool. And I thought I would use it.
Now that the new iPads have come out, I'm still not going to upgrade. In fact, I don't think I'm ever going to upgrade. And that's OK with me.
Apple unveiled two new iPads — the iPad Air 2 and the iPad Mini 3 — at an event in Cupertino, California, on Thursday. They boast faster performance, better cameras, and Touch ID, Apple's fingerprint sensor technology.
The iPad Air 2 is now 18% thinner, at 6.1mm. CEO Tim Cook said you could stack two of them on top of each other, and they still wouldn't match the thickness of the original iPad.
But the original iPad is plenty thin. And thinner doesn't necessarily mean better. It just means thinner.
