    I don't have 67megs to spare for another upgrade.
    Can I get rid of the red 1 on my settings?
    Thanks

    You can't remove it. All you can do is ignore it.

    Well, you know that a better explanation may help for more constructive advice: 1) What iPad model do you own; 2) What iOS is installed; 3) What do you mean by 67 Mbs; and 4) Why not upgrade? Might help us just for starters - Dave :)

    What I usually do is take a look under general>settings>usage>manage storage and delete the largest apps then I go back to the App Store and retrieve them from the 'purchased' section

    If you're referring to the space required to perform the OTA iOS upgrade, then your best bet is to connect the iDevice to the computer running iTunes, and update it there. AFAIK it doesn't have available space requirements this way, and that red 1 will go away when you're done (yep, the only way to get rid of it).

    I am certain that many of those using this forum would disagree with that sentiment.

    Safari is very slow and keeps feezing.

    The cursor hangs below where it should be for writing.

    My iPad is generally sluggish.

    I find it difficult to understand why Apple choose to release a new IOS that leaves users in a worse position.

    Many of us have already upgraded to iOS 8.x - I recently went to iOS 8.1 on my iPad 2 & wife's iPad Mini - we've had no issues and I suspect many here feel the same - the latest version does solve many of the problems w/ the initial release(s). Dave :)
