iPad 2

Hi

I have an iPad 2, good few years old at this stage. Mainly the kids that use it. I notice some apps are not working properly on it lately. It has iOS 9.3.5 and no option to further update it.

I know ios 13 is out now.

In regard to ipad2, is 9.3.5 the highest I can go? and essentially Apple want me to buy a new device.

9.3.5 is what’s supported by the older iPad alright.
You are not forced to buy a new iPad.

My children still use an iPad mini first gen and an iPad with 30 pin connector.
All the required apps still work that they use.

What apps are not working for you?

It’s a 9 year old computer, hardly apples fault if it struggles to run the latest and greatest apps. We have an old iPad 3 and it still works perfectly for YouTube, Netflix and general browsing.

For the keyboard, you should be able to drag the two halves back together and they will snap into place

Fair enough. Thanks, that keyboard trick worked.

App Store
They probably deleted the old app and tried to download the current version from the App Store.
Go into their account on the App Store, go to downloads and you can download the compatible version for your software. My 8 year old is the same for Minecraft

The Keyboard Split
That's a setting change that I guarantee your kids done themselves. You can go back into keyboard settings and turn the full keyboard back on.
