I have a 16GB iPad 2. My iPad automatically downloads a 6+GB update and I have no say in this. I install the update to get my space back, and the software update runs like an arse. If that's not an attempt to force someone to upgrade then I don't know what is. When this thing ran iOS 5 it was really quick. Now with the latest software update, if I turn off all the bells and whistles you'd think it would still run quick, but it doesn't. Sometimes I have to wait about 15 seconds after opening certain apps before I can use it. There are graphical errors everywhere:- 1) turn a split keyboard from portrait into landscape and the background of the keyboard is drawn incorrectly; 2) opening the multitasking switcher results in a 2-3 delay then it jerks open; 3) when in iMessage, open the task switcher and the content of the message you were reading vanishes. None of these things happen on the iPhone 5s. I think this thing isn't fit for the iPad 2 and Apple automatically downloading the update and practically forcing users to install it is a sly move to get them to upgrade.
