    I decided not to upgrade my iPhone 4 as is supposed to be slower. Is the iPad 2 any good on iOS7? I don't really want to slow my device down by upgrading. I know you don't get all of the features but for the animations and other features is it running smoothly?

    Thanks

    I upgraded my iPad mini, which is basically the same as a iPad 2, and it seems to be working okay, I like how you can now stream movies you own, but where are the movie posters?, and in the control center, no flashlight or calculator? Love iTunes Radio!

    Go ahead and upgrade. My iPad2 runs better overall, including faster picture downloads in Safari. I mainly use mine to surf the web.

    It's great on iPAD 2, but no SiRi, alas, but we knew that already - I downloaded Evi to compensate for that a while back.

    It takes a bit of getting used to and you may choose to decrease brightness a bit as there is so much "white", plus opt to bold text under Settings > General > Accessibility, but that was mainly for my bad eyesight.
    If you consolidate lots of Apps into folders on the main screen you'll be glad to know that now you can pack a lot more into a folder than before.

    Wifi is better and screen changes noticeably more quickly. Has a "cleaner" look which some may prefer. Overall, a worthwhile upgrade.

    Have done the update and all seems to be working Ok, however, while I can see a video option on the camera I can't get it to work either!

    Oh, and when I double click on the home button to shut down the apps running in the background, I see the apps and the page they have open (a new feature I haven't seen before), but no matter what I do I can't seem to shut them down - they just open instead. Ideas?

    Ok, sorted the apps issue. Touch/hold the icon just opens the page/function without bringing up the red 'close' dot, but a multi finger sweep of the app to the top of the screen closes the app.

    Have you not got the words on the side. They slide up and down if you touch them.

    1. It was in the start but after using my iPad 2 with iOS 7 for a while and "tweaking" my device using settings it was faster than iOS 6. Crash of apps, lag, safari loading, downloading, all gone better.

    2. You don't get panoramic pictures, Siri, and AirDrop ONLY. I browsed my iPad 2 with iOS 7 and you actually get photo filters, square pictures and videos. I can't call that filters in camera is needed since you can just do the exact same things in the photo's app.

    3. The animations actually run smoothly, so as the Dynamic (Live) Wallpapers where the bubbles moves when you move your device. Its pretty awesome and just reduce battery life by a few minutes or seconds, or not even reduce your battery life!

    Also a few reason you should update it also:

    1. It will help increase battery life.

    2. You will miss the new features.

    Good luck, and may the odds be ever in your favor.
