    Hello - according to the EveryMac Website, you have a first generation iPad Mini - the maximum iOS stated below is 9.3.5 - Dave :)

    P.S. Welcome to the Forum!

    @giradman, much thanks. At least now I know what to do, and that is to buy a new iPad.

    Good luck in your selection - plenty of new and used/refurbished choices, depending on your budget. Dave :)

    ADDENDUM: May be of interest to those replacing their iDevices and wanting to sell the older one(s) - just bought my wife a new iPad Mini 5 for the holidays to replace her Mini 4 - opted for an Apple Trade-in and was offered $120, pending inspection (would have been my 3rd or 4th exchange, all going fine in the past) - well, I was sent an email that the device had physical damage and could be recycled for $0!

    Well, the Mini 4 had worked perfectly before I erased it and removed from her iCloud account - looked almost 'new' and the battery health was over 80% - I had them return the device and tried It's Worth More - offer of $110, again after inspection - they sent me an email that the Mini 4 passed w/ flying colors and we received a check for the predicted amount last week. Not sure that I'll be using the Apple trade-in option in the future? Dave :)
