    As it's only a few months old why didn't you take it back to Apple to get it replaced?

    I hope a long time! And when it starts to not perform as well, I hope I can afford the newest iPad at that point. :D

    I like to skip at least one generation on Apple products well(the cheapest ones) but in my opinion a good solid 5 years it would be alright.

    My iPad 2 was bought in 2011(before Siri existed), and has lasted 6 years. It still works correctly, but it has a few glitches. For instance, sometimes it will randomly flip upside down repeatedly. It also randomly turns off, becomes unresponsive, or just glitch out. But these glitches simply add to the fun of having an iPad, and are easily ignored after getting used to them, although it is hilarious seeing my friends freak out when it "pranks" them ;)

    My iPad 3, from 2012, still works fine, though it's battery capacity is down to around 70% of new.

    My first iPad 2 bought in 2011 lasted just over two years, when it developed a hardware fault. The authorised reseller said It was terminal and offered to sell me a replacement (presumably refurbished) unit which I accepted and it is still working today alongside an Air 2 purchased last year.

    I got my iPad 3 when it first came out in 2012 and it's still working ok. A bit slow at times though so I'm looking to replace it soon.

    I still have a fair amount of iPad 2s come in for screen replacement. They mostly are hand me downs to the kids though. The 1st gen iPad mini is also one of the more common screen repairs I do.
