    Are you saying that I just spent a ton of money for a product that will only last for approx 3 years?

    No I am not. I am saying the battery has an expected operational life. In 3 years the battery will only be 80% as powerful as the day you bought it. But it will still work properly.

    Think of it this way. If you get 10 hours of usage per 100% charge today, in three years you will only get 8 hours per charge. In 6 years your battery might only give you 5 hour of usage per 100% charge. And yes, the battery will eventually fail. At that point you have two choices. Buy the iPad (9th Gen) or buy a new battery, if you can find one ;)

    There is an issue reported about issues with the battery indicator on the new iPads. It sounds like a software tweek will come out in the near future to fix it. MacRumors has the story.

    If your battery is weak, Apple has a program to swap you a refurbished iPad for $99 if you don't have Applecare. It of course cannot an upgrade.
