    Question for anyone with both an iPad Air (first gen) and an iPad mini 2: how does the performance compare? My iPad mini 2 lags and stutters quite a bit sometimes, and apps and tabs reload in the background a lot. I have an iPhone 5s, which has the same processor and amount of memory, that I use every now and then on Wi-Fi, but it doesn't suffer from the same problems nearly as bad. So I was just curious if the iPad Air performed just as bad as the iPad mini 2, or more like the iPhone 5s.

    I use an iPad Mini 2 with Cellular to fly my drone quadcopter. The 4K camera on the drone sends live footage back to my iPad Mini 2 and it never lags or stutters even when my drone is half a mile away.
