My ipad Air 2 is on iOS 9.3.5, and I am wondering if anyone else is noticing Youtube constantly reloading or safari tabs? I bought this iPad new and it never use to do this. I thought by not upgrading it, I'd be preserving it. What gives?
I know it's not what you're asking, but for what it's worth, iOS 12 runs great on my iPad Air 2.
Some of the multi tasking features and the dock make it a good upgrade from iOS 9.
Yes it does! I own an iPhone X’s Max too as you can tell from my avatar below my name! You will love the new features even if are probably scare of changing your ways and scare of learning new features, it pretty easy to learn by trial and error. There are tons of YouTube! videos to help you get use to the new features too!

Well, if you want it to work properly, you’ll have to update it. Yes, you’ll have to make adjustments to how you use it, but these are easy adjustments. The gestures aren’t hard to do, and they work just fine. If you really don’t want to do that, your other option is to buy a tablet from someone else. Either way, you can’t really just stay in 2015 when it comes to tech. The app companies will eventually stop updating for that OS, or will make changes that will break things for you.
Other tablets like Andriod and Windows have much more extensive gesture and features then that of iOS offers. You would have a much steeper learning curve to overcome then that of iOS since you are already using iOS. You are quite stubborn! LOL! I bet that after a few weeks after you upgrade 12.2, you realized how silly you were!
Slide to unlock isn't that great.When Apple makes a foolish move, like eliminating slide to unlock, I won't be one of the users who complains, then adapts, I'll refuse to upgrade and stand by that. Here I am 3 years later...
I have a 9.7 iPad Pro (essentially an Air 2 with pencil support. The CPU and GPU are better but not enormously so) on iOS 9.3.4. YouTube works flawlessly and Safari does as well. I have no idea why that happens, I never experienced it.
I don't update for more or less the same reasons. Not only do I dislike the changes, but I refuse to lose performance or battery life.
Maybe you can try reinstalling YouTube and clearing Safari cache?
I tend not to update apps either, because sometimes they change functionality I like or they make horrible design changes, unless I am sure I will like them.Thanks. I will try this.
Still not sure why the same app works fine on the same software in 2015 and now in 2018 it doesn't.
You can always use older versions. In my opinion, it isn't a huge deal, barring apps that require to be updated, and if they don't support my iOS versions then I can't use them, but those apps tend to still support at least iOS 7, in my experience.Well these “developers” are the wrong ones because they stop supporting older versions. There is no valid reason why iOS 7 and beyond should still not be supported. I can somewhat understand 6 due to the design change.
I go to reinstall YouTube and the damn thing isn’t even compatible with iOS 9. Says I have to have 10 and download an older version. I mean come on!!!
Don’t update. I updated my iPad Air 2 from 9.2 to 12.1 and it destroyed my battery life.My ipad Air 2 is on iOS 9.3.5, and I am wondering if anyone else is noticing Youtube constantly reloading or safari tabs?

If you update to iOS 12, there is an option under Settings -> General -> accessibility -> Home Button -> Rest Finger to Open. Enable that setting. It totally beats the moronic Slide to Open. With Touch ID, slide to open has become redundant.My ipad Air 2 is on iOS 9.3.5, and I am wondering if anyone else is noticing Youtube constantly reloading or safari tabs?

Agree in theory but not in practice if slide to unlock is the main objection to upgrading.It would be as easy as you suggest if Apple allowed downgrading. As it doesn't, it shouldn't be taken lightly, as there is no way back, especially so if you really use your iPad.
