    Hello!
    Is there anyway I can get my iPad mini faster. I restored it but it is still slow.
    When I buy a pc I can upgrade for at least 7/9 years.
    Can I do this with these iPads or when it's old it's old? Maybe a new battery?
    Thanks

    Hi Msstormy - welcome to the forum! :) You have an iDevice from 2012 w/ internal specs of the iPad 2 (from 2011 - one that I once owned) - the machine cannot be upgraded beyond iOS 9.x - as to 'slowness', you've provided no useful information to offer advice, e.g. what is the internal storage in GB, how much is currently used and is available, and what is 'slow', i.e. specific apps, Wi-Fi, other or all? Please respond w/ more specifics; BUT, if you want to take advantage of the newest iOS and current apps, you'll have to obtain a newer device. Dave

    Thanks for the additional information - you seem to have plenty of storage and free space - please tell us what game(s) you are playing and if this is an issue w/ a specific game(s) or all games; also, how are you connecting to the internet and what is the 'quality' of that connection? If the latter has been an issue, have you tried the game(s) on another Wi-Fi network; if so, any difference?

    In the meantime and if not already done, 'Reset' the iPad, i.e. press both the HOME & ON/OFF buttons together until the Apple logo appears (may take up to 10 seconds), then release and allow the device to reboot - NONE of your apps, info, or settings will be lost - tell us if this maneuver helps. Dave :)
