In retrospect, I should have at least upgraded to 6 while I still could, but that ship has sailed. I use my iPad quite a but, but for pretty basic stuff -- web browsing/reading; email; reading comics; Twitter. Finding out that the iPad 2 is STILL going to be supported with iOS 9 got me thinking whether or not I'm being overly paranoid by not upgrading. My biggest concern is that the iPad will slow down so much that it's barely usable, and I've seen very mixed comments about that (though the questions seem to be from people who at least have iOS 6 -- I don't even have that). None of my apps receive updates anymore and I can't download any new apps. Currently, everything does run pretty fast, though Safari does crash a fair bit and some websites are nearly unusable (maybe that would be the same with iOS 8?). As much as I'd welcome a new iPad, it'll probably be at least another year or two before I can justify the purchase. So, thoughts on whether the benefits of a much more modern iOS would be worth it for me? Also, if I were to do this, does it matter if I do a clean install vs the regular upgrade?
