    Finally after 8 revisions, it seems my iPad air 2 with iOS 8.1 keeps VPn connection on! Even when hours of sleeping the device keeps the vpn on when awoken! This is a big surprise!

    My iOS8 devices disconnect from the VPN eventually like it always has done. Is this exclusively to the iPad Air 2?

    i also can confirm that vpn stays on and do not disconnect like it used too, that's a welcomed fix!

    Does it reconnect automatically, or does it really keep the connection on? If it's the former, it's useless.

    It does not reconnect! It stays connected!!

    My VPN is dynamic ip and if my air 2 vpn connection disconnected and reconnected my ip would change each time but it doesn't at all. I left it in for 18 hours still connected to even when iPad air 2 is sleeping. This is most welcome new feature or "it's been way too long" apple feature.

    My 6+ shows me the same thing yesterday. VPN keep on for a very long period of time (including when the iPhone is locked).

    I didn't notice at first but my VPN had remained active for about 3 days, I pay for a static IP VPN.
