    I found this website;

    https://www.redmondpie.com/downgrad...-on-any-32-bit-device-and-untether-jailbreak/

    and it gives me some hope that I might be able to downgrade my iPad mini 1 running 9.3.5. I’ve destroyed some Android phones in the past working with firmware and so I want to be more careful this time.

    Question: Which version of iOS runs fastest on an iPad mini 1? If the software as it improved did not make the hardware run slower, then I shouldn’t downgrade. But, if the iPad did get slower, then I might try.

    Thank you for your responses.

    IMHO, the 9.3.5 isn't THAT bad on the iPad 2, despite the initial (indexing-caused) slowdown.

    Didn’t work for me. But it looks like it might have promise for other people. The product version number seems to be the problem and I can’t find the correct one and I’m not going to worry about it.

    EDIT: had a revelation last night: I turned off every notification and just about every app I can think of in Settings setting it up for the third time. ** iPad Mini 1 hasn’t slowed down yet, I thought **. And then I realized that I hadn’t installed Bear nor Tweetbot and they both use a lot of Internet.

    Well...

    So if I use my iPad Mini 1 as a static consumption device for books, downloaded music and my Bible software; I’m fine. The moment I start using Internet-based apps, I’m sunk.
