Disable parallax effect
NoBlur (I recommend using the replace blur with transparency option)
Ignore these people, you can make IOS faster with Cydia hacks and the peformance difference is better than barely, and no, you don't have to buy a new device that you probably won't even be able to jailbreak.
EDIT: A few more things.
Go into settings, general, background app refresh and turn it off, then go back to the first page of settings and go to itunes and app store, then turn off all of the automatic downloads.
I never said it would run as good as the iPad pro, stop putting words in my mouth.Good try bud. Keep telling him to ignore reality. Yes his 6 year old ipad will run as good as an ipad pro
I been jailbreaking iphones since 2007 and used all kinds of similar hacks.
In the end Speeding up the animations or turning off options such as spotlight or other settings does not make the device performance faster.
You can only do so much when it comes to installing newer ios versions to older hardware the device will drag no matter what.
Keep in mind I never said these tweaks will make the iPad fast, I said "faster".
Again, ignoring facts.
Yeah, next you're gonna tell me that low power mode doesn't save battery and only makes the battery icon yellow.
