    IPAD IOS 8 ISSUES

    Anyone got an older ipad????
    Thinking about installing the IOS 8 update.
    Anyone who has will know what I am going to say! (Google IOS 8 update problems!)

    DON'T DO IT!!!!!

    Apparently the older processors are just not up to running IOS 8 combined with some left over remnants of IOS 7 reduces the performance to....well not what you have been used to.
    WI FI speeds grind to a stop, Safari used to whizz along, now freezes and hangs pages....can just give up altogether.
    Apple Tech reckon there is little that can be done other than a wipe of redundant bits which is accompanied by the usual risks of major computer surgery, plus that it will not make a whole lot of difference to performance.
    So the only real option is to replace with a newer model
    So thanks for that one Apple!

    All I'm experiencing is a slow screen response, i.e it will swipe but usually wont select something!! Older iphone 4 was not offered the update!!!

    What effect has it got on a newer ipad? Mine is about 18 months old and I dont know if that is classed as old or not. I have been delaying installing it after my sister had troubles but her ipad it double mines age.

    Should be OK , GOOGLE the ipad model number and IOS8 problems...see what it says.
    This is an ipad2 ,later models should be fine.....but your turn will come!
