    Hello,

    My dad is thinking of having new iPad is it worth getting iPad Air 2 or wait for new one? I know it impossible to tell what the changes are but is it worth it never less?

    so you can grab my existing one :lol:

    Erm..... can't see whats going to be on the new one other than perhaps more battery life, faster, more capacity? so I'm not particularly anxious about that

    iphone 6, iwatch probably the next focus of my excitement :D

    :lol: I never said that :whistle: but better battery life, more capacity and being faster, sound much better to me and a definite reason to upgrade :wink:

    Hey, you've got a Pebble, why would you need an iwatch :D

    Chris has just said you've got to arms, so he can't see the problem :laugh:

    I don't see the point of the watches :sorry: If people want larger phones because they want larger screens, why would they use a watch with a small face :unsure:

    Is it a "male gadget thing" :lol:

    BUT they'll be able to do all the fitness stuff, heart rate monitor, steps taken, and you can choose how you want it to look which is always cool :lol: new watch faces etc

    I have the iPad air and it's great. I really don't know what more they can do to it that will improve it. I would wait until the new one comes out and grab a bargain. :)

    I'm hoping for an i watch!

    The new iPad is rumoured to have the fingerprint scanning facility, so an added layer of security... Well worth it for something that will likely store a fair amount of personal information.

    There's a slim chance they'll also give it the new 802.11ac wifi, meaning it will network a little quicker. I think the current one has the MIMO (multi-ii, multi-out) antennas but not the full speed.

    It's only a matter of a few months, I'd wait.

    Oh, I forgot to mention... I want an iWatch too, if for no reason, than I can talk to Siri from my watch and pretend that I'm Michael Knight from Knight Rider.

    When is the new ipad air due out?

    I currently have the mini, but I'm using my ipad more and more for my cake business and notice the image quality isn't as crisp as it could be

    Usually, it's updated just before the Christmas buying season, so late in the year, around October/November I'd guess.

    Ha! Now is fine, as long as you're not going to stare longingly at the new model and wish you'd have waited!

    There are a few rumours of a 30% thinner iPad mini, Jeff.

    Hello Dad and I have decided to get the new iPad air.... I got iPad air 64gb cellular... I have decided to synchronise my mac lap top, iPad and iPhone so it becomes one system. So far so good...

    I am wondering if there is any new app that I have missed that made specially for iPad?

    Does anyone have Guardian iPad edition? What is it like? I really like the look how evernotes and moleskine work together....
