    Who's waiting to purchase the iPad Air 2?

    I'm ready! I'll be selling my iPad Air and upgrading as soon as it's released.

    Why ? What is the difference, and is it worth the expense ?

    One of the main features I'm hoping the iPad Air2 will get is the finger print scanner. I find that so useful on the iPhone that having it on the iPad would be great. With Apple adding the ability for developers to use that feature in iOS 8, I can see a ton of apps taking advantage of it.

    I never bought an iPad Air so it's time to upgrade.

    I'm satisfied with my iPad Air. The finger print scanner is not worth the expense for me. It may not even work. It doesn't work too well on my laptop. I must have worn off the top layer!

    Well, we don't really know what the new iPad Air will have, but it will have to be really groundbreaking for me to upgrade this year. I've upgraded to every model of iPad since the iPad 1, but with the iPad Air I finally feel it's mature enough to last at least two years.

    It's also going to depend on what the iPhone 6 does; which I will upgrade to this year. If Apple can talk me into a significantly larger iPhone, it's going to take over a lot of the tasks I carry an iPad around for; making upgrading the iPad even less important.

    I'll have to have one in my hands before I can decide on the iPhone upgrade path.

    I still have the iPad 3 for quite some time now. I'm thinking about upgrading.

    Ditto. My Air works like a champ and I always keep my devices for a while before upgrading so this will be no different. I went from the 2 to the Air and it will be just as long, if not longer between upgrades this time too.

    I'm with twerppoet on this one - no new iPad Air for me. This one I have is working great and I am well pleased with it. Granted, there could be some groundbreaking thing that may drive me to think more about an upgrade ... but I highly doubt it.

    The new iPhone? That's an entirely different story. As a retiree, I rarely take the iPad out of the house. So, I use my iPhone while I'm out and about. And I want that large iPhone - the 5.5" one of which the rumors speak!

    I so rarely use the phone as a phone (calling), that the perceived "silliness" of holding that large a device to my ear is very outweighed by the convenience of having a large screen. Heck, I'd've even gone with a Mini if it had had telephonic/cellular capability.

    If the iPhone comes out with a larger screen, especially if it's the 5.5" one, I definitely will keep my iPad Air longer.

    Oh, the hope I have for this Tuesday's announcement(s)! :D

    My iPad Air is perfect. I'll be skipping this generation.
