Funny that. I have the same iPad. I was having a look earlier at the newer models, but now they’re pushing iPad Pro. It costs something like twice as much as the model I bought 4 years ago. Is it twice as good, not at all. Similarly I’ve got a 5-year old MacBook Air. It still runs fine, but I can’t see myself upgrading both the iPad and MacBook Air, not when I can get a Surface Pro or something similar for around half of what I would pay for both new Apple products.
Similarly, why would you want to spend £1,000+ on a phone which would be outperformed by an Android model costing £100’s less? I remember going to buy an iPhone 4 from a T-Mobile store maybe 10 years ago for £500. £500, for their flagship phone. Even with inflation I would guess they have almost doubled their prices. Their huge profit margins they now boast about show how for Apple it is more about marketing and lifestyle branding these days rather than doing anything truly innovative now.
