    I swore not to update my mini 2 past iOS 9, as it made it slower than iOS 8 for no real benefit. I get typing lag and scrolling stutter which really annoyed me!

    I read that iOS 10 makes scrolling smoother.

    Any iPad mini 2 users have experience with ios10 yet?

    I can only rely on 2nd hand info (because I don't have one) but my friend said hers is the same or a touch faster. She did describe it as "smoother".

    I installed it on my mine and no problems so far, it actually seems to be running better

    The experience isn't great for me on mini 3, although to be fair my point of comparison is the Air 2 which runs iOS 10 like a champ.

    The scrolling seems to be better than 9, and overall I think it feels a bit snappier. This is likely due to the quicker animations. There is still a bit of typing lag from time to time though, which really gets on my nerves.

    I guess I would say that it's not been an amazing experience, but it seems to be a tad bit better than iOS 9. If you were still on 8 I would tell you to hold off though.
