Apple's latest iOS 10 tends to obsolete almost 40% iPads
According to the report, as of March 2016, iPad 2 had 17% market share, iPad 3 held 9% and iPad mini's (first-generation) share stood at 15%.
At WWDC 2016, Apple announced that the following devices will be compatible with iOS 10: iPad 4th gen, iPad Air, iPad Air 2, iPad Pro, iPad mini 2, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 4, iPod touch 6th gen, iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone SE, iPhone 6/6 Plus and iPhone 6s / 6s Plus.
Claiming to be Apple's "biggest iOS release ever", the iOS 10 now has a new lock screen with richer notifications, quick interaction options with apps, and 'raise to wake' feature. Users can directly jump inside apps and access more functions right from notification alerts. They can reply to text messages, view live status update and even clear all app notifications with one tap.
Once Apple releases the latest version of its mobile operating system, iOS 10, millions of iPads will become obsolete.
