The 2nd generation Apple iPad, which was released in 2011, is officially legacy.
Typically, the company lists gadgets as “vintage and obsolete” products that ended more than 7 years ago. Apple will no longer service or support such products, and service centers can no longer order parts to repair them.
iPad 2 was declared obsolete back in May 2019, but then the US and Turkey made the exception, the local legislation of which requires long-term support for 10 years. This deadline has expired – and the other day iPad 2 became obsolete all over the world without exception.
Recall that the second generation iPad has made a huge leap over the first in terms of design and performance. The tablet features a slimmer design, a front-facing camera for FaceTime calling, and an A5 processor that’s twice as fast as the original iPad and up to nine times faster in graphics.
