Any iPad 2 users out there?

I'm currently running iOS 9.3.1, the latest available for the series 2 iPad is 9.3.5 and I can start the upgrade anytime I choose. But, I'm trying to ascertain whether there are any issues with running 9.3.5 on such an ancient iPad, given it's almost impossible to roll-back if it turns to muck, eg it becomes slower than it is at present.

Re: Any iPad 2 users out there?

My one got slower and slower, to the point where I did a total reset.

Restore to a previous state can be done, and I have, but eventually I just gave it to my son as a white noise generator for their new baby...

Re: Any iPad 2 users out there?

I'm running 9.3.5 on my iPad 2 and haven't noticed any issues.

The iPad runs slower than my wife's 2018 model iPad but it does what I need it to do.

I'll give in and buy a new tablet at some point I guess.

I haven't used my iPad Mini 2 Retina in months - must charge it up (which will take until tomorrow!) The Huawei Mate 20 Pro phone I have at the moment has a huge 4200mAH battery but it charges from flat to full in just over an hour.

Re: Any iPad 2 users out there?

Have taken the plunge and updated to 9.3.5. It seems to be ok.
When it comes to replacement I think I'll get an Android, I'm not a big fan of Apple's business model.
