Did you know, that after around 5 years your iPad/iPhone will start to work slowly, apps will start freezing or crashing.
The same might happen to Android devices.

It happened to my iPad Mini, that I only used for testing. I kind of can use it to read books.
It has iOS 9.3.6, it is still working, but veeeeeery slow.
Most apps stopped working, my own games just crash. Even Book Reader crashes from time to time.
Battery is still fine, but Apple needs more sales, thus the results:
Apple fined for slowing down old iPhones.
The same happened to my test Samsung tablet, so it’s not just Apple.

The reason I’m writing about this is an email from one of the players:

If you can choose your next device, choose laptop. It small enough, it can work without battery, you can always delete ugly Windows 10 and install whatever you want.
It won’t die in 5 years or sooner, unless you drop it. 🙂
Online version of All-in-One Solitaire is always available to play in any modern web browser.

If you still want a tablet, try to not download and install system updates, stay with original version as long as possible.
Usually every new update has more “features” thus consuming more resources and making your device slower.
