It has slowed down my iPad mini a lot! This new iOS sucks. Do not install.

I would recommend not updating to iOS 8.0.2. It has slowed down my third-generation iPad down considerably, and I have yet to see anything about the new system that is an improvement for me. Maybe it’s helpful if you use your iPad for more advanced functions, but I can’t imagine many people use an iPad for such things – an iPad is supposed to be about portability, right? If you need a computer for the higher functions are you really using a tablet?
