Apple's second-generation iPad may remain popular with consumers and business buyers alike but the tablet won't support most of the new features coming from the iOS 7 operating system.
iPad 2 left out in the cold on iOS 7
For instance, the original iPad and iPhone 3GS skip iOS 7 altogether while the new AirDrop tool will only come to the iPad 4 and iPad mini.
The iPad 2 will only receive the Siri updates and iTunes Radio, while Filters in Photos and a new capture mode will come to the iPad 3 and newer devices. Even the iPad 4 and iPad mini will miss some features, namely panorama and filters in the Camera update.
