Not everyone is a tech nut. Even though I upgrade my iPhone every two years like clockwork and always buy the newest iPad, some of my friends are still using first-generation iPad models and even iPhone 3G devices. Downloading cool apps becomes nearly impossible on older iOS devices because developers want to stay on top of the newest technology.
