Does the apps installed on an ipad affects its performance on ios 8? My grandma has an ipad mini 1 and i have the mini 3. I have games installed like minion rush,subway surfers,zombie tsunami etc; and other apps . Hers only have skype and facebook and some others which i dont recognize. What i notice is that at times when shifting back to home page is that hers moves a little smoother, mine has some drop frames(just on safari) we're both on ios 8.1.2. I'm pretty confuse though. i don't know if my ipad is defective or not. How do i check..can anyone help? i dont have any other device that has the same hardware as the mini 3.
