Thats weird, must be a low seller and they quit support already. Apple that is.

Ipad air 2 is newer than ipad 4. The naming on Apple is weird because they introduced the "air" line, and the "mini" line. Ipad 4 = 2012, iPad Air 2 = 2014
You can see the timeline on the image here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IPad_Air_2#History

Apple is basically declaring obsolete everything that is not 64 bits. Ipad 4 is the last 32 bits ipad that Apple made, that's why it can't update more than ios 10.
For more geek talk, they are also declaring obsolete OpenGl and enforcing their own graphics api called Metal. Metal only runs on 64 bit devices, that's why the iPad 4 can't run it either.

In short, apple is enforcing everyone to buy newer systems. The way to do it is by enforcing iOS 11 minimum for all updates. That ios only runs on 64 bits.

If you get an Android device, i would suggest anything that supports Android 9 since it's the latest android. And at the minimum Android 7 (that's already a pretty old system).
Androids are way cheaper and run just fine. Unfortunately, there are so many different versions depending on which country for that someone from there should tell you better than me.

I'm using a samsung s5e running android 9, seems to work great but wouldnt call it inexpensive. It is a replacement for a galaxy tab a I had that also worked well and priced lower.
