I need urgent advice on ipad choices – my life is now complicated and unbearable. and I am scared.
Hi everyone. I have autism and my ipad was my AAC communication device. I used an app called avaz. This is a picture of my AVAZ app. [https://i.imgur.com/Cun8vXv.jpg](https://i.imgur.com/Cun8vXv.jpg)
My ipad stopped charging. It was an ipad air. It was bought previously with a grant I was awarded many years ago, I think 2013. I need to know what the oldest ipads are running ios 12 and above are so I can work out how to get a new one second hand. Being over 25 makes getting some of the grants very hard as I am no longer a young adult but I did begin the process today too of trying to get assistance that way.
It has complicated my going out and my ability to communicate as well as my ability to process things such as feelings.
I just am not even sure what I should be looking at as I just mostly used the ipad for communication. AVAZ, email, skype and various talking. But also a few games. But I know it has to be over ios 12 for avaz to work at its best. As there were some updates I needed ios 12 for.
Also. A big question I have. Do I need to get another grant for AVAZ or is it tied to my ios account and will work on a new ipad?!? As it was a 200 dollar communication app.
