    iPad 2 to IOS 9 latest?

    iPad 2 to IOS 9 latest?

    I've downloaded the iOS 7.1.2 Ipsw file so I should be ok with that then? Westpac tech said iOS 7 is fine.

    iPad 2 to IOS 9 latest?

    Its definitely slower.. 7.1.2 was about on par with iOS 6, but 8 was slower than 7.1.2 and 9.2.1 is still slower than 8.4.1. Turn off a lot of settings
