Apple Users Say They Feel ‘Cheated’ by Fourth Generation iPad Announcement

Just seven months after launching its third-generation iPad, Apple on Tuesday unveiled its fourth gen iPad — twice the speed for the same price as the suddenly old model.

And it’s not sitting well with some Apple users, according to a flash poll of more than 1,400 Apple users.

After noticing grumbling on social networks, a coupon code website conducted a flash poll to ask Apple product owners what they thought of the announcements.

Of the 1,427 people who responded to the survey, more than three quarters, 76%, said Apple released products “too regularly”.

Their anger, though, appears to be short-lived: More than half or respondents said they would be likely to buy the iPad Mini or fourth generation iPad.
