I upgraded my iPad 2 from ios7 to ios9 this morning and I’m really wishing I hadn’t. I did some reading & expected a bit of a performance hit, but wow – it’s borderline unusable.

I know it’s way outdated tech but the only thing I really use it for is web browsing, reading news feeds, and watching tutorial videos. The only game I play is Cargo-Bot (which, by the way, is excellent).

I’m talking 3 to 4 second lags between almost any action, and everything is super sluggish to the point that I just want to throw it out the window.

For me, the icing on the cake is that the handful of videos that I kept on the iPad are now, apparently, no longer compatible. They worked last night, tonight they “cannot be played on this iPad”.

Thanks, Obama.

Update – I just finished doing a factory restore and the old iPad seems to be running much better than it was. It’s still not a speed demon, but much more in line with what my expectations were going into this.
