Hi there

Have installed the PB on my iPad Air 2, but hasn't solved this issue, but posting in here anyway. My iPad, since the last OTA update has started to freeze for a couple of seconds, before playing catch up? For example, writing a text message you can type away with nothing on the screen, then all of a sudden it catches up with itself. Games can take longer to load, and its affecting all apps including built in ones.

I've tried a home + power button reset which hasn't really helped, would a blow away and restore from backup be my next course of action?

Many thanks

My iPad Air 2 started doing the same yesterday, but strongly believe it maybe due to the battery having fallen under the 80% charge capacity, meaning that that our iPad’s are now trying to preserve their batteries.

How old is your iPad Air 2? I got mine in 2015, so I am not surprised it’s doing this now.
