    Any fix for this? My iPad air 2 is ruined. Wake delays and orientation does not work most times. Especially not when woken via the home button. Thanks Apple. Therefore also ruined touch id.

    Orientation will work again if you turn off "reduced motion" in the settings...

    I went back to 8.3 because 8.4 seems way to buggy... Couldn't be happier!

    I had all those issues today on my iPad 2 today. A hard reset fixed it for me.

    Yeeaahhh.... I wish I would have stuck with 8.3.

    All my apps became totally unresponsive the other day but the OS UI itself continued to work fine. Even Apples apps were unresponsive and would not rotate. Had to do a reset and everything has been fine since.

    Here is a quick video I made when it happened.



    Like those editing skills? Look out James Cameron....

    As long as Apple is signing 8.3, you can still downgrade to it. Instructions are on the web, and you can download it here: https://ipsw.me

    Just be forewarned that you can't restore to a backup you made on 8.4, at least as I understand it. I did my 6 & Air 2 this morning because I'd simply had it with performance on both. VERY happy to be back on 8.3, where the Air 2 is nice and smooth again. I ended up having to setup as new on the phone, and used the 8.3 backup I'd taken before upgrading to 8.4 on the iPad. It was worth it.

    I heard about the backup thing thats why I havent attempted to rollback. For some reason, like a goof I updated then backed up both my iPhone and iPad.

    However on the bright side I'm not experiencing much lag like others have described. Might be hard to tell from the video since most everything is unresponsive what is responsive is smooth.

    I too am having this problem on Air 2 after going to 8.4. Where is Apple's QA?

    Had the same issue with orientation but rebooting fixed the issue.

    Well as of today they are no longer signing 8.3 so I'm glad i got my iPad back down to 8.3 last week.

    Thank you for the video! I thought it was only me. This touchscreen unresponsiveness seems to occur occasionally after I do the Pinch to Home Screen gesture.

    What Reset did you perform?

    Lock + home button until Apple logo pops up.
