    title says all, this might be the last chance I can upgrade to 9.3.5, or move on to ios10 or stick with ios8.
    Anyone know iPad Air performance in terms of speed and general for each ios version?

    I updated to iOS 10 last night.

    It's running excellent to my surprise.

    I pad Air 16gb.

    Enjoying move from previous 2013 MacBook Pro.

    Personally, I feel like my iPad Air is less laggy and glitchy on iOS 9 vs iOS 8.

    The iPad Air on iOS 8 was just so frustrating with continuous "A problem occurred with this webpage so it was reloaded" errors there were times I was tempted to throw it at the wall. I almost couldn't wait for the Pro 9.7 and came very close to buying an Air 2 last year. iOS 9 feels like it gave my Air a new lease on life. I still get some page crashes on iOS 9 but they're much rarer now and at least Safari doesn't go on a continuous refresh loop.

    Of course, ymmv.
