    I come from an Windows environment to Apple. Thought I was leaving all the crap behind me.
    Jokes on me!
    Is it possible to reinstall IOS7 back into my IPad Air? Was quite happy with ver.7 Everything worked fine no probs at all. This fiasco with version 8 reminds of my windows days.
    Wi-Fi is now erratic, cellular is now slow, fav game doesn't work in ver8, freezes at times now when typing messages. I see everyone whinging about ver8 & others offering makeshift solution/workarounds but what is Apple going to do to get us out of this whole, I'll bet this wouldn't have happened if Steve was still there.
    Can IOS 7 be reinstalled? I dread the reply

    If you did not JB your iPad then you can't return to iOS7

    Thanks Alice,
    I like many I suppose have little to no experience with AppLe.
    Point in fact...... What is JB, probably jail break?
    I've heard the term but no idea what that is.

    I suggest you redo the update via iTunes on your computer. 99% of issues that you are experiencing are resolved.

    G'day marioG, a very good idea after any system upgrade is to reset (rebooot) your iPad, maybe even more than once to nicely bed in the new software. Do this:
    Simultaneously hold down the On/Off and Home buttons until the screen blacks out. Keep holding both until the Apple logo appears and then let both go. Then wait until your wallpaper appears. Restart your iPad.
    That has often helped...let us know how you got on:)
    Andrew
