    Hi, and thanks in advance. There are private, apple trained technicians. Has anyone used one (my ipad is off warranty so that is not an issue) to upgrade memory. I have 32gb, and would like to go up to 64. Is this even possible? I imagine it would involve swapping memory chips.

    As already stated, you're stuck w/ 32GB of internal storage on your iPad; but, you may want to tell us 'why' you need to double that memory, e.g. videos, music, etc.? There are certainly cloud options and off-device storage, such as the Apotop Wi-Reader below, that might serve your needs? Dave :)

    Well, I cannot give you a personal recommendation from experience, so can only mention some options - most of my video watching is done via streaming (Roku device to my HDTV), DVR recordings, and DVD/BDs - however, that Apotop Wi-Reader has been on my wish list for a while - see Gabriel's thread HERE; the manufacturers of external drives also have products that provide Wi-Fi streaming (check the Seagate HD HERE); and of course apps on your device, such as Netflix can provide streaming over a Wi-Fi network. So, just a couple of suggestions to think about - good luck! Dave :)

    Here, thanks to iFixit, is why it is not something to be asked lightly:

    The yellow bordered chip is the memory, in this case 16 GB

    Here you can see it next to the processor (to the left, the cap has been taken off of the A5 processor)

    Life is to short just use an external wifi adapter as you can stream movies to multiple devices at the same time. It works great

    Thanks. Are they hard to set up and use, and which one would you recommend: Seagate?
