Anyone else using an iPad2 noticed a distinct slowing down of virtually everything?
I have not yet and own an iPad 2. I am still waiting to see how it goes for everybody else.
Have you restarted your iPad to see if that might fix it?
Sorry. I have the Air and it seams to work fine on it. I haven't installed it on my work's iPad 3, because it might mess up my work app. I'm currently testing the work app on my Air.
Yes, a restart was the first thing I tried, and it's not made a lot of difference. If you haven't downloaded it yet, it might pay to wait a while!
Yes, distinct pause before apps load and display, slow Safari, Spotlight search sometimes gets certain data from iPad, other times does not get the same data. Great difficulty printing, all printer operations ignore printers that were previously available in IOS 7, now only have one printer available, and that's a high quality graphics printer - no good for general use. And that is despite all my printers being available to my network via wifi. Keyboard, which should suggest words, only works in some apps, not in TapaTalk ! In fact it now seems to have given up the ghost altogether. Also network connection occasionally drops unexpectedly for quite a few minutes, then comes back - eventually. And why the change to tabs (and closing them) in Safari ? RIDICULOUS !
Certainly wish I had waited !

Looks like iOS 8 is definitely a wait-and-see update for the trusty iPad 2. Maybe even a 'no thanks, like what I have now.'
As tempting as it is to always get the new iOS updates, gonna really try to exercise good judgement this time.
(OK, OK, I'll wait - don't update now - just don't do it. OK, OK!)
Work has been very busy for me to even think about updating to iOS 8...probably a good thing right now. I also need to make sure that I have adequate storage on all devices before making the move.
I have iPad mini. That's basically the same as a 2, right? I'm having all kinds of trouble. Everything is so slow; Safari Slow enough and unpredictable as to be nearly unusable? Is it just my device? Did I download improperly somehow? I am so stressed and frustrated about it, wondering if this is what I'm going to have to live with from now on. I'm a long time Apple fan, but if this is an "improvement" over version 7, I think it's time to reconsider Android. Is there any advice? Anybody else having extreme useability issues?
The iPad 2 is pretty much older technology when compared to the iPad air. I have a ipad 2 and have realized that this update may not be one I do for this device. A new device is certainly one to think about soon.
Installed 8 last night. Performance seems about the same. At this point I don't see any big changes. Not that impressed.
