So, how am I supposed to find out what kind of processor is in my iPad?
It’s fairly straightforward on any of my PC devices to open up the control panel and see exactly what hardware is installed, as well as the version of drivers, etc. But I’ve no idea how to do that on Mac devices. (Which is why, other than the iPad, I never use Mac: they are not user friendly for people who like to look in the “guts” of the machine.)
On a related note, I downloaded the latest OS update a couple of days ago. Now I find that the iPad wants to set up functions that I do not want, and it is giving me no option to tell those functions to go away and stop bothering me. So whenever I go to use it, I have to tell it to cancel the set-up. Arggh.
I don't think you tried very hard.
On a Mac computer put your cursor on the Apple (upper left corner) in the menu bar, and select "about this Mac" (first item) in the drop down menu. All of the information you want is available right there, and enough more to make my eyes glaze over.
