In 2010 Steve Jobs introduced everyone to a new device that was a complete revolution. The first tablet in history, and it was called the iPad.
Quickly, the first version of the iPad was replaced by the ipad 2, some months later. It was a success, and a benchmark in the world of tablets that emerged then. Now, 10 years later, Apple has stopped marketing it all over the planet.
Apple has just ended the second generation iPad in the world. It was announced by Steve Jobs in March 2011, months after the introduction of the first version of the iPad. It marked a big breakthrough in the range of these devices from all manufacturers, and laid the foundation for what a tablet was.
The iPad 2 was already obsolete in most countries of the world since May 2019, except in the EE.UU
Now that ten years have passed since its commercial launch, it is already sold out in these two countries that were lacking. So there is obsolete In the whole world.
The second-generation iPad featured an updated design that was a 33% thinner than the original iPad. It also had new capabilities, including a front-facing camera for FaceTime calls, a gyroscope, and an updated dual-core A5 processor, twice as fast as the original iPad and up to nine times faster on graphics. The iPad 2 was also sold in black and white.
Once Apple declares a specific device model as discontinued, it does not receive any type of technical assistance by the company, nor does it provide replacement parts for repair, either by Apple directly or by third-party companies.
Obviously, these third-party repair companies will still be able to repair damaged units, but already with spare parts that are not. original of the brand.
