    Typically iPads that have been Restored from iTunes via USB have issues with Updates. I always start fresh and new on new devices.

    I like continuity, and create icons for webpages that I visit often.
    All of my iPads are running on restored backups.
    No issues on my iPad Mini 4, my wifes iPad Air 2 or my iPad Air 1.
    I started to not update to 9.3.2 on my Air 1, but glad I did.

    I would not say that it is at all "typical" for iPads to have issues with updates when restored from backups. I have never set up an iOS device as new since my first iPhone 3Gs, and I have had no problems. Many others here say the same.

    In any case, I don't think this addresses the question of how well the latest OS version runs on the (I presume he's asking about the original) iPad Mini.

    Seems about the same as 9.3.1 for me.

    I guess I'm a little worried as I'm updating from iOS 7. I've heard that taking a leap like that can be hard on the iPad. Is that true?

    I own an iPad Mini Retina (or Mini 2), and after Apple pestered me for days to update iOS to 9.3.2, I went ahead and upgraded. So far, no issues with speed or anything else. It works fine.

    I would have to say that the Mini 2 is a workhorse, at least for me. This is probably the best Apple device for the money I had ever purchased (it didn't hurt that I got the 64 GB at Costco with a $100 discount right after Apple announced the Mini 3), and I have owned it for the better part of two years.

    Although it is no longer the latest or fastest Mini nor does it have the best display or color palate, I can see why Apple still sells it as an entry level model. It was a huge leap over the first generation Mini, which I gave to my daughter after I bought the Mini Retina.

    Battery life is good. No change in the latest version of iOS.

    I agree with everything here. I love my "rMini." Perfect device for work and gaming. No problems with the latest iOS at all.

    I'm having no problems with my rMini. It's running great and battery life lasts a week! Wish I could say the same about my iPhone.
