Useless, freezes constantly, drops programs, doesn’t respond

published

This is the worst piece of technology I’ve ever bought and has been so since day 1. It freezes constantly. It shuts down programs constantly, it closes web pages constantly. It shuts down apps constantly. It’s absolutely useless. The screen often won’t respond. I wouldn’t ever buy another.

Purchased in August 2020 for $499.00.

Got this iPad awhile ago and it is super fast, easy to use. The screen is quite good. It is fantastic for reading and games. The new OS gives it even more in-depth usability. Recommend.
