For a phone, I use Android. (Specifically, an HTC One M8, which is now very old).
For my personal computers, I use Windows.
At work, I use a MacMini.
For reading, I use a Kindle Paperwhite (which I cannot recommend enough).
That is to say, I’m not an Apple fan. But, since I’ve recently started reading graphic novels, I realized that my Kindle Paperwhite was just not big enough. After practically putting the (300 DPI) screen on my eyeballs to read dialogue, I decided it was time to invest in a better comic reader.
All of my Internet research pointed me to the iPad (3 or above) with its Retina screen. The only comparable Android tablets either received terrible reviews or were extremely expensive.
At first, I was reluctnant to go down the Apple path but, at $90-$100 on Swappa, I decided to take the plunge with an iPad 3.
After unwrapping it and updating I realized there is one major problem: Apple prevents anyone with iPads 3 and under from downloading all the major apps by demanding you have iOS 10.0 or above, even though you cannot update iPad 3s or below to iOS 10.
Google Chrome? Nope.
Amazon Kindle? Nope.
Google Play Books? Nope.
For some reason, this isn’t actively discussed or issued as a disclaimer and appears to only come up when you specifically search for the problem.
Now you know!
