My 3G iPad 2 seems to be sluggish over last weeks can I get som advice on my options it operates on OS 9.35 in conjunction with mobile Wi Fi an my iPhone 6s ,I have the two synchronised
However over the past month the IPad seems slow to load and typing is extremely painful
Do I need a new Sim Card or shock horror as new I Pad ,a message comes up saying I should be running 10.0 OS
Appreciate some advice please
Solved! Solved: Go to Solution.
First check how may apps you have running. Do this by double clicking on the home button and then swiping up the pages to clear them. (apologies if you have already done this)
Nex try resetting you ipad as per this link:
You should also install IOS 10 as with any updates as these include the latest security updates.
It wouldn't be your SIM.
Hope this helps
Also the iPad 2 is quite old now so with the latest software and apps, you'll find it will slow down. I think I got my iPad 2 in 2011 so that'd make the hardware approximately 6 years old now. Unfortunately it may be time for an upgrade if you can find a few tweaks to help.
Before you do though definitely try doing a full wipe as per the link above first. That usually gives it a second life but don't forget to back it up first!
Thank you , I have done all the re sets recommended without wiping completely I think it's because even with iTunes it will not load OS 10 ( just says it's up to date ) The I pad has been a good servant and as you say 6 years old and has done a lot of work , not sure to upgrade to I pad pro or I pad 2 plus
what is your recommendation
I'm still using my iPad air 2 (which I think is 2-3 generations younger than yours) so I don't have any hands on experience with either sorry. I think at the end of the day it'll come down to longevity. They are both great but I'm pretty sure the pro has better specs so would probably last longer but also cost more upfront. Tough choice! If there was any chance of you holding out until Christmas, I would and suss out the after christmas sales but that's a while away unfortunately.
