I have had issues with my iPad 2 running super slow after the IOS 8 upgrade. I have since upgraded to IOS 8.1 and the problems continue. I have stopped my apps running in the background, cleared the cache and history, changed the DNS to 18.104.22.168, powered it on and off several times and still have problems with it running really slow. Using Safari is virtually impossible as it takes seemingly forever to load and I might as well forget upgrading apps when needed. Any help to make it run faster would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
