    After installing iOS 9 on my iPad Air 2 it's like a whole new device. The folders are bigger to better organize my apps. Split screen mode is so handly so I can research something without having to close an application. Everything seems optimized and works just a little more smoothly. Safari can show more bookmarks on the favorite screen. I'm really glad Apple decided to finally show a little iOS love for iPads.

    :eek:

    aside from the split view feature, it is thoroughly enjoyed on my mini 3 as well...just waiting for more apps to add support for the PIP feature. My device feels snappier for sure.

    I ordered an iPad mini 4 but my mini 2 seems to be running faster with iOS 9.

    I'm thoroughly enjoying split screen in just the ~30 minutes I've been using it so far. Really is a handy feature!

    My air 1 is scrolling smooth as hell. Much less herky jerk.

    Are you guys seeing the Low Power option on your iPads? It's not there on both of my iPad mini and min Retina, and I'm now at 55% battery capacity.

    And installing Crystal makes browsing several times faster. Completely different experience... now I actually want to browse the net on the ipad rather than moving to the computer...

    to my knowledge, that option is just for iPhones.

    I'm excited to hear that your devices are collectively running more quickly. The funny thing is that, people generally do say that after each update and upgrade. Typically what makes the devices seem faster is that they actually restarted their devices. Though I am aware that iOS 9 is built to be more snappy.

    I guess what I am saying is... restart your devices more often, like once a week or so; and don't do that by holding both buttons until you see the Apple icon. This is a force restart and does not have all of the same benefits of the proper shutdown and reboot process.

    Content blockers are awesome. Safari no longer sucks.

    I've noticed too when I'm on a website with lots of large photos (like dailymail.com) that scrolling is much better. Used to be you'd scroll and half the page was white for a few seconds as the images lagged behind.

    100% agree. My iPad Air 2 is now my go-to device now with the multitasking (I have an iPhone 6 & MacBook Pro as well). I constantly browse Safari & get iMessages, so side-by-side is perfect. It's very fluid too (I thought it was been choppy). Plus, the trackpad feature has been handy when editing notes (though it is quirky ever now & then).

    Apple definitely upped productivity (or at least usefulness) on the iPad.

    It's running amazingly well on my old iPad 4, it feels new again. I think I'll keep it for another year. It's missing some of the multitasking stuff because of the 1GB ram, but I'm enjoying it. Way better than 8.4.1.

    That is the main reason for Apple to convince Android fanboys over to iPad with iOS 9.

    My old iPad2 feels better and might last me another year now :)
    Want that mini 4, but guessing that waiting for the mini 5 with the A8x won't kill me :)

    Safari with Crystal enhanced my mobile browsing experience tremendously. Never thought I'd see this.
