Eb, help please!!
My youngest uses assistant technology Proloquo2Go to help communicate. We are looking at a second hand iPad mini for school.
Is there a way I can see if I need an iPad 1 or 2 or what?
Good sellers?

The minimum iOS should be listed for the app, you’ll find info In the App Store

Then maybe google minimum  iOS for the iPad your wanting to buy

We have a mini and can’t upgrade iOS beyond v9 so it’s pretty restrictive on what apps we can use.

The App Store will show what iOS or device each app is compatible with. Looks like you'll need iOS 12.4 at a minimum.

Here's a list of which iPad and Mini models support iOS 12:
Seems like you'd need a Mini 2. I have an iPad 4th gen and it doesn't go beyond iOS 10, so you'd something newer than that. 5th gen at least.
