I'm a first gen iPad user. I don't understand why Apple is completely neglecting us. I can understand holding off on the cooler stuff for the newer iPads but we are the people who helped the iPad turn into what it has. Atleast give us and updated email, safari and stores. Why not? Androids have had those features for awhile. Just give us the second best thing out their. Don't let your three year old product fall behind the pack of android tablets. We paid to much for that. This is an Apple product, people respect that. When people ask us if they should buy an iPad, we don't want to have to say "buy an Android, they care about you even when your device is three years old, Apple forgot about us."

iPad, iOS 5.1.1

    You do realize you are wasting your complaints on your fellow users? Direct it at Apple. http://apple.com/feedback/

    "...buy an Android, they care about you ..."

     

    Especially in relation to upgrades that is the funniest thing I have read all day.

    This is a user to user forum. Apple is not here. Apple does not respond here.

     

    Many folks come here and curse Apple because the original iPad has issues with iOS 5. iOS 6 would likely be worse. You got what you paid for with the version of iOS that came with your iPad. Everything else has been icing on the cake.

    I just hate the thought of replacing it though, especially when it still looks and acts the way it did when I brought it home.

    Then don't replace it. Is iOS 5 not good enough? Are you not able to live without iOS 6? I see no reason for you to replace it unless you absolutely need iOS 6.

    If I were you I'd sell the iPad on Amazon through their trade in program and get an iPad 2 or a new iPad.

    I was just a little upset and wanted to see if anyone felt the same way.

    Trust me, there will be hundreds. This forum will be choked with comments in the next couple of weeks and then again when iOS 6 is issued and all the folks who have been oblivious to the issue realize they didn't get the upgrade either.

    So you and he were following the keynote (it wasn't a press conference) on a blog?

     

    Which version of Android is he running?

    He'd get more selling it privately or on eBay.  Also look at the Apple Recycling Program.

    Hold off, there may be a new iPhone in four months time. The new iPad is the same shape as the iPad 2 but a tiny bit thicker and a little heavier for the batteries. And it gets a bit hotter to the touch.

     

    There is always a trade off when you try to make a mobile device more powerful and more capable.

    Probably 2.2 or thereabouts. Latest is 4.0 but I don't think his Droid can run that. There will be several features in iOS 6 that will not be available on his version of Android. As the start of the keynote section on iOS 6 showed the updgrade path on Android is chaotic. I would hate to be a developer for that format.

     

    OK, so you waited to view it later.
