Article should have semi-protection[edit]

The iPhone, iPad, iPod and iOS version history articles are already protected. This article should follow soon.
On a side note, I suggested to move the iPad model comparison stuff to this article similar to what was done in the iPhone article. 84.173.206.33 (talk) 01:41, 27 March 2016 (UTC)

Listing iPad model names[edit]

All devices in this article are listed by their article titles, which are by default named "[Device] ([no.] generation)" when they do not have an alternate official title such as the iPod touch models and the original iPad models pre-iPad Air. As such the iPad (2nd generation) should be listed as such, not by its marketing name "iPad 2"; if this format was used for all devices, then all iPhone 'S' models would have to be listed with a lowercase 's', and the 3rd and 4th gen iPads would need to be listed as "The new iPad" and "iPad with Retina display" respectively. I made this change to the article twice, but it was reverted both times by an IP user, so I am seeking the response of the community here to prevent an edit war. – Nick Mitchell 98 talk 05:40, 5 April 2016 (UTC)

You are assuming that Wikipedia article titles are always correct, but they are not... E.g., the IPhone 6S article uses a capital 'S' - which is wrong. And the iPad (2nd generation) article title is definitely wrong too (was introduced as "iPad 2" and this has never changed since then: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201471). Similarly, we could easily create an iPad Air (2nd generation) article. Who cares if the device is actually marketed as iPad Air 2??
Btw, Apple is changing some model designations from time to time. E.g., "The new iPad" => "iPad (3rd generation)"
MAYBE Wikipedia article titles should change as well in such cases... 84.173.218.12 (talk) 13:31, 7 April 2016 (UTC)

You are wrong in this instance in reference to iPad Air 2 not being the official name, it is obvious that what the Apple markets their product as in a specific language is it's official name in that language, in this specific case, iPad Air (2nd generation) is marketed as the iPad Air 2 in English and has been since inception. This is not a hard to draw conclusion Jasonanaggie (talk) 04:22, 9 April 2016 (UTC)

The iPad 2 article title has been changed. 84.173.207.52 (talk) 13:56, 9 April 2016 (UTC)
<< @Anthony Appleyard: [...] There has never been any consensus to move this article away from "iPad 2". SSTflyer 07:58, 9 April 2016 (UTC) >>

iOS/tvOS/watchOS versions[edit]

Please list stable software releases only. 84.173.221.176 (talk) 09:49, 8 July 2016 (UTC)

Improve accessibility / legibility[edit]

Could someone repeat the header rows at the bottom (and maybe the middle) of each of the comparison tables and add tooltips to the colour squares that give the colour names? That would make it quite a bit easier to read the tables. Thanks! — OwenBlacker (Talk) 16:03, 12 July 2016 (UTC)

Removal of older devices[edit]

There is at least one editor that feels that older devices should be removed from this list. Since this is not the List of currently supported iOS devices, I feel that is not at all in order and have restored the info. I would like to get others input and gain consensus before this is unilaterally removed from the article. Toddst1 (talk) 23:42, 14 September 2016 (UTC)

Please don't remove information just because it's old, it's still interesting and occasionally useful. 79.176.116.104 (talk) 23:40, 20 May 2017 (UTC)

Broken things to fix[edit]

The "Feature comparison of iPod Touch, iPad, iPad Mini, and iPad Pro" table is a mess - a lot of information starting from the iPad 2017 column isn't aligned correctly (what looks like it belongs to iPad 2017's, is actually for iPad Mini 1st) 79.176.116.104 (talk) 23:39, 20 May 2017 (UTC)
