How iPad developers help Apple to eliminate the iPad first edition
In worst cases software can stop working after an update on an iPad 1. Software rollback to an older release is not in Apple's interest.
I wrote this article out of frustration regarding the good old Apple iPad 1. My wife still uses the iPad 1 for reading books and for maintaining her weights in an app called Monitor your weight HD from Husain Al-Bustan (Kuwait). She is already doing this for more than 2 years. It's not the app that frustrates me, it is the way how the lack of version control on the Apple iPad is used to force users to buy a newer iPad.
