    Delayed upgrading while I searched to see if there were any issues. Found none so did the upgrade. Now Safari is s-l-o-o-o-o-w :(:( loading pages. If the content is image intensive forget it.

    I note that my alternative browsers Apollo and Puffin do not seem to suffer from this. However, as there is no way to replace Safari as the default browser, all my bookmarks are there and of course any link from elsewhere automatically opens here.

    What can be done?

    Thanks

    eta ipad 4 with 32 gb - not using much of it. Speedtest shows download 7.73 Mbps so it's not my wifi

    This sound like something may have gone wrong during the update process. The best course of action is as follows:

    1. Backup the device - either iTunes or iCloud is fine.
    2. Use iTunes to restore a clean, fresh 6.1.2 install onto the device.
    3. Restore the backup from stage 1 and allow iTunes to fully sync all your apps, etc. back on there.

    You should hopefully find that the issue is resolved.

    Whilst Apple have done a great job with the update process, it does go wrong from time to time. This process normally fixes it.

    Good luck.

    Yes, a full restore using iTunes.
