My ipad 2 version is 7.1.2. Everything works well. I know most people who have upgraded to 8.1.2 like it but a few have reported problems and expressed regret in upgrading. I have put off upgrading b/c I didn't see a reason to take the chance of creating problems I don't need. Is it really worth it or should I stay with 7.1.2. I'm not a gamer. . .just email and browse a few websites.
