iPad mini vs iPad 2: download speed issue
Hope you can help me with my issue
I just got an iPad mini as a gift. I've been previously using an iPad 2 from time to time to look at youtube videos and download music within an app. Now when i use my ipad mini, the download takes much longer. I looked at the specifics of the ipad 2 and the ipad mini and they're identical. But when i do the speedtest, then ghe download speed is pretty much the same. Does someone habe an explanation why the download takes so much longer? Or is there a problem with the ipad mini?
Thanks for the help!

Did you update to 6.0.2? That update was for an issue with Wi-Fi. If you have, you may try taking it to an Apple Store as my iPad mini downloads things just as fast as my iPhone 5 when both are on LTE or Wi-Fi. There have been reports of people having issues with the Mini's Wi-Fi.

This might be a hardware-related issue.

But, like I said above, if the OP continues to have concerns about the speed, taking to Apple is a good first step.
EDIT* I just downloaded Theme Park (417 MB) on my iPad 3, iPad mini and iPhone 5 all at the same time. All 3 were connected to the same AirPort Express that is wired via Ethernet.
All 3 downloads finished at the same time. The iPad mini and iPhone 5 were NOT considerably slower by any means. To insure the test was correct, I then deleted the app from all devices and reinstalled them at the same time to test it again. In the second test, I received the same results.
TL;DR - The iPad mini, iPhone 5 and iPad 3 all download at the same speed.
