    By now, you already know why iOS 8 is so great and you’re probably looking to download it as soon as possible on your iPhones, iPads or iPods. However, there are some bad news, as well. Being highly praised about fast update cycle for older devices, it seems that this time Apple will make quite a lot of users unhappy. According to Apple, the oldest iPhone model to get iOS 8 will be the iPhone 4s and the oldest iPad will be the iPad 2.

    Well they didn't get 6 or 7 so it's obvious that they won't get 8.

    Yea, it never got 6 or 7 so why the surprise it won't get 8?
    I'm thinking whoever wrote this article doesn't own an ipad1 and probably never even used one. They probably think it's got a camera.

    I think what you said is unnecessary and offending. You crossed the line.

    I am still waiting for someone to test iOS 8 beta for the iPad 2. I am sure it could work fine in the iPad 2.

    I'm thinking the iPad 2 will do just fine with OS8.

    After all Apple would have done their due diligence before making this announcement!

    I'm just so happy it has made the cut! ;)

    Huh. Tell that to iPhone 4 users.

    The iPad 2 is doing really well. It survived around 5 or 4 OS. And it is still going really good! The iPad 2 is a really good budget tablet!

    The iPad 2 is a great device!.....it was my first and I will always treasure it!!

    Not sure if I like it being called a budget tablet though! ;)

    But times have surely changed and I guess you are right!! :)
