    I am suprised by how the iPad 2 will still have iOS 8. What if it lags so hard?

    As usual for older devices and the wise, wait until the first (or second) version of the new iOS is out, and listen to what the early adopters say.

    That said, I'm seldom that patient.

    Well I see that the update has a lot of new features, but I doubt the iPad 2 will have all of it. I am not very patient so I guess I'm a dead man. I will just wait for a few days and will update if everything goes dandy.

    A few days is usually easier anyway. The load on Apple's servers usually drops off enough that you can complete the update in one try. :)

    You and me both. Just a few keyboard tweaks is all I really care about. The email program is finally being made better though... That was another one that felt old and somewhat useless.

    It still won't be like Android just because there can be third-party keyboards....

    Thank you for that reply. Just what I am looking for. Looks like Apple peeps are listening to customers. I am not the only one that likes both numbers and letters on the same view.

    I always tell peeps I have an iPad 4. Much easier than saying iPad with retina display.

    I found a great email application by name on MailTo. It is free. This allows to hit SELECT ALL on any folder and either move, delete, mark and other options. The included email application does not allow for one to select ALL to delete all emails at once.

    And most people will understand that; but when reading Apple press releases it help to remember that Apple does not use the terms iPad 3, or 4. Instead they are the iPad with Retina display, and then 3rd or 4th generation when they need to make a distinction.

    I expect the iPad Air will go the same way. The only question (in my mind) is whether they will start the generation number over again (iPad Air 1st or 2nd generation), or default to the year released (iPad Air 2013 and 2014) like they do for new iMac and MacBook models.
