Smartphone users often update their phones every year or two, while tablets often last for a few years. If you are an owner of the five years old third-gen iPad, you should know that Apple plans to declare it obsolete by the end of this month.
This information was confirmed by a leaked memo that Apple has sent out to employees informing them about their plans. Both the WiFi and cellular models will be cut from the list of officially supported devices. What does this mean? Well, there won't be any official repairs available, but you can take it to third-party/unofficial repair shops.
