    Anyone know if it is faster or slower or the same as iOS 8.1.3?

    it seems slower for me. It may be indexing or something...

    Right after install it was a little glitchy, but I let it sit for a few hours and did a hard reset and everything seems to be running fairly smoothly. I think its about on par with 8.1.3, or just a tad faster.

    Following this for my iPad Mini 1. My iPhone 5 seems fine so far, but my iPad Mini has been reloading tabs more frequently lately with 8.1.3.

    Like with any update people will have different experiences to some degree, especially in the first day or even two. So far doesn't seem like there's any truly significant/noticeable change one way or another really.

    Faster and smoother than 8.1.3, especially Safari. Wait one hour after the update for best speed, to finish the reindexing.

    Install the update, you can still go back if you don't like it. And I didn't receive a Apple Watch App - for whatever reason. Don't really miss it though...:D

    Apple watch app is only for supported iPhones, not iPads.

    After downloading iOS 8.2 yesterday on my iPad 2, I do not find it any different in speed as to what it was before on 8.1.3..

    In my case, it is no worse or better then 8.1.3...

    FYI....

    Safari seems to be faster and macrumors is not generating that "reload error" any longer.

    I was on the earlier version of 8.1 something. I have not touched the ipad 2 since december. I did the update and it does seem bit better in loading safari pages and apps. Little smoother. Probably ios 8 is the last update to keep these old ipads going till ios 9.

    It's funny, on my iPad 2, I never once had a reload page error on safari, not when I use macrumors or any other website...

    Isn't it just weird.....:confused:

    Well, the different experience for everyone holds up--I practically never had the reload error and Safari appears to be the same as before for me.

    noticeably faster on my iPad 4, which, despite a complete restore, was slow as hell under 8.0.0->8.1.3. Opening folders and various UI animations have been accelerated to almost iOS7 levels and I enjoy using the iPad more now! Still missing the butter-smoothness of iOS6 though...

    I installed it on 15 iPad Mini (1st generations) at work and it seems faster.

    I guess it falls under YMMV category.

    I guess just because some of us on MR do not have 'safari reloading' problem, doesn't mean others do not...

    It also works vice versa, just because few of them have this problem, doesn't mean every one else has it..

    If people just understood this, a lot of dramatic statements and hyperbole on this forum would cut down greatly.. Anyway, we can only hope....

    Bizzare, happened last night while browsing macrumors on 8.2. Not the biggest of issues by any means...

    You guys are freaking hilarious. 8.2 is 8.1.3 with Watchkit added and bugfixes. But no, please go ahead with the "slower" or "faster" comments.

    I've had this at various times, with various versions of iOS. I suspect that it's due to ads trying to load.

    There's more in 8.2 than just WatchKit and just bug fixes, as is usually the case with x.x releases (and even sometimes with x.x.x ones).

    I actually think there are quite a lot of under the hood improvements in iOS 8.2
    Ever third keyboards API seems to be better, with less issues.

    I know right? And iOS 8.1.3 is only iOS 1 with a few features and bug fixes added. Whats up with these guys on here? It's crazy.

    How about tab reloads? Does it occur as many times?

    I can switch between alienblue and safari without the current tab reloading on my 4s finally.
