    The first thing we need to do is get your post to a subforum suitable or your problem.

    Please explain a little more as to what is going on. If your iPad is running poorly after the update there are any number of things that could be wrong.

    Well, Safari is running very slow now, sometimes I can't even get onto a website. Also, I have a very difficult time connecting to the App Store. All I know is that it ran so much better before I updated it. From what I can tell by looking online, others are having problems with the new update as well. I am a teacher and I use this iPad with my students. I am very disappointed.

    I would suggest resetting network settings. This problem is not universal. Since I updated Safari has become blindingly fast.

    Do you have the wifi only iPad? You might need to reset your network settings and re-enter your password information.

    Settings | General | Reset | Reset Network Settings

    Make sure you have all of your network info handy before you do this.

    Not a bad idea. I've read here and there about some connectivity issues that were corrected with a network refresh per say.

    My wifi isnt working properly. Not able to access facebook, surf safari, go app shopping or itunes for that matter. Hopefully they get the update fixed for us soon! Its driving me crazy. I did 2 things to my ipad 2 and although its not running great, it is running a slight bit better. Go to settings, wifi, click the blue circle next to your access point, then scroll down and click auto for http proxy. If that doesnt help, you can go to general, scroll down to reset, cluck reset network settings. This is what i read off another post and like i said, its not back to normal, but slightly better. Only thing is to be patient and wait for them to fix the update. :)

    Thank you for the suggestions. I will try resetting the network settings. Sure hope it helps. In the meantime, hopefully Apple can fix the
    Update. Thank you again!! Dina

    I have an iPad 2, but since the upgrade to iOS 6 it seems to be running slower. When I open apps like Pages, it takes longer to load, and the multi-tasking gesture which used to allow me to easily switch between open apps (with the four finger swipe), only works about half the time. When it does work, there seems to be a lag as well. It's really frustrating to me. I tried restarting my iPad, but that didn't seem to have any effect. Any thoughts? Any similar experiences? (I'm kind of wishing I could downgrade to iOS 5 just to have better performance again).

    I had a 3G network connection problem, which is a rare experience for me, a few days after my update but it was resolved by resetting my iPad: Pressing the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time (for about 10 seconds) until the Apple logo appeared. That cured my connection problem when my less drastic steps to solve the problem failed.

    I love Pages and ditched all my other similar apps, but the sometimes glacial length of time it takes for the app to open and the screen freezes have been a constant problem for me since iOS 4.

    Since upgrading my iPad2 to iOS 6.0.1, I've also noted some intermittent loss of Wi-Fi connectivity? For example, this morning in the bedroom (just across the hall from my router) I wanted to check my email but could not get a Wi-Fi connection on the iPad; however, w/ my iPod Touch, the Wi-Fi was fine (older 2G device). When I brought to iPad to the den, the Wi-Fi returned. If this becomes a 'major' intermittent issue, I'll either reboot my router/modem, change the router's transmission channel, and/or reset the network settings on the iPad - annoying!

    You can buy small wifi re-emitters you can stick in any outlet. Works fine!
