    I am not an owner of an iPad Air, but I managed to get my hands on one. What a wonderful device! I sure wished I had one! It was a really powerful device.

    So. The question is, even though the iPad Air is a very powerful device, will you even bother upgrading when a new iPad is release?

    For me though, if I had one I would not bother getting one. The iPad Air is a very powerful device. Its more than enough for me.

    I won't be upgrading, I love my iPad Air, I just can't see the point in getting the next one.

    Unless there is something really new and useful, I would not, after only one year. For example, when the retina displays came (third Gen iPad, 2nd gen iPad mini), I thought that was enough for me to upgrade even after only 1 year. I don't see what will be on the scene this time that could induce me to upgrade. Yes, more RAM would be nice but I'm not sure it will make much of an impact on day-to-day operations for me. Touch ID would be nice, but I'll get that on the next phone I get in fall, and even though I use my iPad everyday and use a passcode on them, I'm not going to upgrade for that. I might get a full-sized iPad, however (not as an upgrade). If something really unexpected pops up, then I'll re-evaluate and make a decision.

    I wouldn't upgrade so soon, unless the new Air is going to be light years beyond the first, which is highly unlikely. The current Air does it for me in every way and I've never had a problem with it. I expect it has a lot of service left to provide.

    The conventional wisdom used to be buy a model, skip the next one. I'm not sure that's true any more. I'd expect to see huge leaps if I were to update from iPad2 to iPadAir, but having made that move, I'd probably wait for 3 or even 4 new models before I updated again.

    I went from iPad 2 to iPad Air and will probably not upgrade for the next couple of years.

    No, my 2012 retina display that I leave at home is still good.

    iPad 1 > iPad 2 > iPad Mini 1 > iPad Air

    In all aspects, my jump to the Air a couple of months back has been a major upgrade. With every new iPad, I always get the fully kitted version - cellular with the highest storage variant. I don't see anything "major" with an upcoming Air. Unless they come up with a 12" version. That would, however, be chained to a coffee table though. I see myself staying with the current Air for at least two years.
