Buying a used iPad

Recommended Posts

Hello there,

I own the PC version and I'm really happy with it and was planning to buy iPad version but currently I don't own one, I thought of buying a used one, iPad mini 1 or iPad mini 2, will it work fine?

I searched everywhere for a complete list of supported devices but all I found was "Requires iOS 11.0 or higher" on app store, and as far as I know the iPad mini 1 and iPad mini 2 support iOS 11.0

Ideally buy an iPad Pro, but here is the Serif compatibility list, don’t stray from the list it would be an expensive mistake.

I think the minimum screen size needed is 9.7.

That’s what I use but it needs to be a very recent iPad or a Pro model, the iPad’s originally mentioned will not work.

The above list is missing the 6th generation iPad (9.7" non-Pro, but supporting Apple Pencil) released in March 2018. The earliest supported model is iPad Air 2, released in October 2014.

I’d buy the best you can afford, John Ruskin comes to mind, “It's unwise to pay too much, but it's worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money - that's all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do”

The Affinity apps run OK on my iPad Air 2, but I’m glad I went for the 64 GB model. I’ve filled up half of that space in less than a year.

A used iPad Air 2 costs me about 4 salaries.

I'm getting it mainly for Affinity Designer on the go, is the app fully working without a pen? Only using my fingers I mean.

It’s so much better with Apple Pencil, but hey everyone has to start somewhere and it is perfectly usable with your fingers too.

I mostly use my fingers, but I do have a third-party stylus that I use occasionally.
