I am really disappointed that the ipad does not support Java.  I need to use it for school as they run a blackboard system based on java applets.  In addition my iMac has died, and even though it is 6 years old, I am still dissapointed.  I am wondering if Apple is planning on addressing this issues in the near future?  If not I may be switching back to microsoft or android.

iPad, iOS 7.0.4

    While there is no native Java support, youcan download some Browsers that support Java from the App store.


    Just search fro Java Browser in the App Store.


    By the way, Windows tablets don't suport Java either unless they are running the full Desktop/Laptop Windows 8 OS.  The standard tablet version does not support Java or flash for that matter.

    Unlikely any iOS device will ever run Java.  See if there's a dedicated blackboard app for your school system.


    Feel free to switch to any device that works for you.
