TS1702 Why won't apple support my 1st edition iPad any longer. Apart from greed?

Why will apple no longer support my iPad 1.
I am no longer able to read magazines I have subscribed to because the app now needs iOS 6.
And apple won't let me upgrade my software.
Rip off I thinks.

Neither Apple (nor any other company) will support a product forever. The iPad one is, by technology standards, obsolete. It has nothing to do with corporate greed - unless you define greed as making a profit.
Your iPad still works, apparently. If you wish additional functionality, buy a new one - it is your money and decision.

  • Why won`t apple support siri on iphone 4 ?

    Why won't apple support siri on iphone 4 ?

    We are just users like you. So we can't answer that question. However, there are hundreds of posts about it, so a search of the forum might be enlightening.
    The iPhone 4 is four generations out of date. Have you noticed that when any company releases a new product or version of a product it has features that previous versions did not? If it didn't then what would be the point of coming out with a new version?

  • Why won't Apple support printing to mobile 3 rd party printers

    Why won't Apple support printing to mobile 3 rd party printers

    It's up to the printer manufacturer to provide an app for printing from. Many do, and any support AirPrint which is what iOS devices use for printing.
    It's not Apple's job to create printer drivers for every third party printer on the market. Printer manufacturers provide drivers with their products.

  • Why won't Apple support Flash?

    I posted this same question on an Adobe Flash forum and the answer I got was that Apple has to approve Flash for its operating system.
    If this is true, why won't Apple do this? Not supporting it means we, the customers, lose out on a great deal of internet content--which we simply can't view in the Safari mobile browser.

    As a non-techie user, this is seeming like a chicken-and-egg sort of thing: the Apple people point to Adobe. Adobe people point the finger at Apple.
    In either case, I and other users seem to be on the loosing end of things. 
    David.
    Please show us where we might see a copy of the Adobe Flash Player for IOS then, and we will know who's the chicken, and who's the egg.

  • TS1702 Why won't my apps install on my ipad? it keeps waiting. Please help

    Why won't my apps install on my iPad, it just keeps waiting. Please help.
    Thanks.

    These are all steps that have worked for some other users in the past. They may not work for you, but they are worth a try.
    Make sure that you do not have a stalled download in iTunes - a song or podcast .... if you have a download in there that did not finish, complete that one first. Only one thing can download at a time on the iPad so that could be what is causing the problem.
    If that doesn't work - sign out of your account, restart the iPad and then sign in again.
    Settings>Store>Apple ID. Tap your ID and sign out. Restart the iPad by holding down on the sleep button until the red slider appears and then slide to shut off. To power up hold the sleep button until the Apple logo appears and let go of the button.
    Go back to Settings>Store>Sign in and then try to update again. Tap one waiting icon only if necessary to start the download stream.
    You can also try deleting the waiting icons - tap and hold down on an icon until it wiggles - the tap the X on the icon to delete it. Then try to download again.
    You can try resetting all settings. Settings>General>Reset>Reset All Settings. You will have to enter all of your app preferences and device settings again.

  • Why won't apple make iOS 6 for iPad 1

    I was exited to get an iPad when they came out 2yrs ago and paid a premium price for it.  Apple won't support it?

    search back about how many complaints there were because iphone4 were slow with ios7 and you will see
    it's the same reason why microsoft don't support win7 on 386-25Mhz computers

  • Why won't apple support the charging cable I bought?

    I bought a cheaper charging cable online. It worked just fine before the ios7 upgrade. Now the software won't let the cable charge my phone because I didn't pay apple $30 for it. This is ridiculous and the opposite of why I was an apple fan before. Not to mention how overpriced the apple cable is. Not cool.

    Apple has no obligation to support someone else's product. Why you would expect that is beyond understanding.

  • Why won't Apple support "text blocking for teens while driving"?

    I was watching the Today show and they did a spot on teens and texting.  Did you know that 18 teens die PER DAY because of texting?  Fortunately, there are many products out there that can block texting and phone calls (except 911) while the car is moving.  Unfortunately, Apple will not support any of these products.  Why?  Are they not concerned about the safety of our teens?

    This is a user-to-user forum. You're not actually addressing Apple here. Submit your feedback using the Feedback page:
    http://www.apple.com/feedback
    You might also want to contact your carrier and have them block text messaging on your teenagers' phones if they have demostrated they can't use texting responsibly.
    Best of luck.

  • Why won't Apple support iBooks on Mac

    I am curious as to why Apple doesn't have an iBooks App for the Mac

    Nobody knows, and Apple isn't saying.  The issue has been discussed here many times already in the last year.

  • Why won't Numbers 3.2.2 sort data any longer?

    I have a table that will not sort.  I have entered projections for the coming year according to category and need to sort them by date.  The sort feature is grayed out.  My spreadsheet is getting long (my projections for the coming year take me to row 595) but it is only ten columns wide.  I cannot sort even a smaller portion of this table, although other tables in my file seem to sort OK--though not all.  None of my dates in the portion that I want to sort are formulas.  Any help will be appreciated.  Not sure what my options are here. 

    Quinn,
    I'm a dork, is all.  Not sure that there is any technical help available for my internal software.  I am still having trouble getting used to the changes in 3.2.2 and 3.2.1 from the earlier version I was using.  I hadn't specified the column for the sort command.  Sorry to have bothered you guys!

  • Why won't my Airport Utility/Time Capsule Work any longer?

    Time Capsule has not completed a back-up in over a year. Prior back-ups appear to be incomplete.  Once started, Time Capsule gets hung up during attempt to connect and eventually fails. All efforts to reset, unplug, have failed to help. It is connected to an iMac and otherwise functions perfectly as Wi-FI for my iPAd and iPhone. Any thoughts/direction will be most appreciated.

    What model TC? Exact number from the base.. A1xxx, and how old?
    Do a full factory reset.
    Is connected to imac mean ethernet? Please do the setup in complete isolation from the network.. so nothing plugged into the TC except imac and turn off wireless in the imac.
    Do the setup again, with minimal setup.. I think I would just erase the drive and start over as the old backups will take longer to sort through than starting over.
    Once you get a clean fresh new full backup from TM.. then see how you go putting it back in the network.
    If it still fails, even isolated then it is faulty.. more than 3years old TC is not reliable.

  • Why won't Apple Mobile Device Support install with itunes setup??

    Why won't Apple Mobile Device Support install with itunes setup?? I keep trying to reinstall, and installs everything but Apple Mobile Device Support. How come. will someone please help me?? I updated windows, and thoroughly removed everything before i reinstalled itunes. I don't know why it's Apple Mobile Device Support isn't going on there. HELP! Is there anyway i can just download and install Apple Mobile Device Support by itself???!

    For general advice see Troubleshooting issues with iTunes for Windows updates.
    The steps in the second box are a guide to removing everything related to iTunes and then rebuilding it which is often a good starting point unless the symptoms indicate a more specific approach. Review the other boxes and the list of support documents further down the page in case one of them applies.
    Your library should be unaffected by these steps but there is backup and recovery advice elsewhere in the user tip.
    The section Install missing components has advice on breaking down the iTunes installer into the individual .msi files which might prove useful if a component such as Apple Mobile Device Support won't install normally.

  • Why apple give up 1st gen iPad to support IOS 6

    WHY APPLE GIVE UP 1ST GEN IPAD ,IOS 5.1.1 IS Last OS UPDATE FOR 1ST GEN.
    AI........MY 1ST GEN IPAD CANT UPDATE TO IOS 6 ...GIVE UP

    This question has been discussed several times during the past couple of days...concensus seems to run along the lines of the A4 processor and memory in the original iPad not being able to handle the demands of iOS 6.  Performance would be so degraded it would not be good to use.

    About AirPlay and Airplay Mirroring
    AirPlay Mirroring requires a second-generation Apple TV or later, and is supported on the following Mac models: iMac (Mid 2011 or newer), Mac mini (Mid 2011 or newer), MacBook Air (Mid 2011 or newer), and MacBook Pro (Early 2011 or newer). For non-qualifying Macs you can try using Air Parrot.

  • Why won't Apple admit the problem with 6th generation nano power button?

    The power (sleep) button on the 6th generation nano is obviously faulty and poorly designed. Why won't Apple step up and make it right and issue a recall to fix or solve the issue so many people are having? Apple, do you hear us? Make it right! You know it's wrong! If a power button fails after a couple of years, that's a sad design. Shame on you!

    No, they don't hear you posting here. My button is working fine after 3 years.
    This is primarily a user-to-user technical support site. You've wasted your time here.
    Go down to Contact Us at the bottom right, get Apple's address and right them a letter.
