It was April when I finally admitted that I may want to buy a new iPad. I knew that the new iPads would be announced in October so I didn’t want to buy an iPad that had been previously released. I figured I could wait until the new ones were announced. Who knew what sort of new features would be announced. Plus, I had been using my old iPad 1 for so long that I could wait to buy the newest of the new. I had the money to buy the iPad back in April, but I set it aside for when the time came.
Well, the time has finally come. New iPads were announced mid October and released last week. My gold iPad Air 2 arrived on Tuesday. I picked it up from UPS about 5 minutes before we had to leave for our prenatal class. I didn’t open the box because I knew I wouldn’t want to stop playing. When we got home from our class, it was well past bedtime so I didn’t even take my iPad out of the box that night! I had it in my possession for over 15 hours before I actually turned the thing on! It was amazing self restraint on my part.
I set it up as a new iPad and am adding the apps and content as I go along. I am really liking starting from the ground up. I am still working at getting it just the way I want it, but it’s been a fun process. I also love how it syncs over iCloud with my iPhone. Content is consistent on all devices. It makes me happy.
Yes, I feel a tiny bit guilty for spending money on this new toy while I could have bought something for the baby. However, since I set the money aside ages ago, it makes me feel slightly better.
Did anyone else buy or are planning on buying the new iPad?
