Anyone want to share their experiences of minimum requirements for an iPad to run POS for about 2500 items? I would rather buy a used 2nd or 3rd gen but want to know if either will do the job and what memory requirements are recommended. Thanks.

Hi Anna

Here are some guidelines for the maximum supported number of products and variants by iPad type. Anything above these figures may well work, but we don't give any guarantees:  

iPad 2: 2000 products, 4000 variants
iPad 3: 3000 products, 6000 variants
iPad Air: 5000 products, 8000 variants

Also, It's always a good idea to remove any unwanted apps and products to increase the POS app's performance. 

Hope that helps!
