iPads are supposedly getting more memory, Microsoft wants you to subscribe to their software, and what happens if you break your iPhone screen?  The inside scoop and answer to your dilemma followsWell your current iPad may become a recent memory because it doesn't have enough memory. According to Cnet.com,  looks like the new ones will have 128 gigs , but they will be priced at $799 to start.   That seems to be the only part of the upgrade that will change -  guts of them won't -  same speed, screen etc, just more room for big files - like doctors who want to store X-rays or big movies or something.  However rumors are that they're coming out with an all new one in a couple of months!
