    Default iPad 2 to IOS 9 latest?

    Westpac has confirmed that IOS 6 users can no longer access Westpac on iPads running that OS. Also on Macs running Snow Leopard or older. Since her Mac cannot go beyond Snow Leopard since it's late 2006 can anyone who has done it confirm that IOS 9.2.1 works OK? Also if it doesn't and I've done a full backup can I go back to IOS 6 with the backup.

    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 and its a bit better.

    You can't downgrade if you upgrade unfortunately, you're stuck on 9.2.1.

    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.

    unfortunately you can not install iOS 7 or 8. Apple is only signing 9.2.1 so even if you have the update file you can't do it.
