    Oh, that is awful. I haven't upgraded mine past 7.1.1 yet, and now I think I'll keep waiting. Please post if you find a way to fix it.

    I hope we dont have to wait until january/february for an update fix on this. I guess doing a restore should alleviate the problem?

    Keeping mine on 7.1.2 as well until further notice.

    Have you tried restoring the iPad? Did an update from 7-8 for my dad's mini and it immediately become a slow and unresponsive tablet (like $80 Android China-tab slow).

    So, I did a full restore and it made a VERY noticeable improvement (just get any files you need off it first). I'm using an Air 2 so my benchmark is now much higher but the mini is fluid and snappy again.

    Going to iOS 8, Mini was set up as a new device, I've got this iPad in Apple Store (exchange due to display)...

    That's still no where as bad as the lag when you're in the App Store and you rotate the screen. It's almost like the iPad is one and done thanks to Apple's crap OS. Yeah, my iPad 2 and Air are staying on iOS 7 and my iPad 3 is still running iOS 5.

    I've found certain apps to be very laggy on iOS 8 - one game has become almost unplayable (Heroes of Dragon Age), but I think the blame lies squarely with the app developers.

    I know functionally it doesn't really make a difference whose "fault" it is, but we should still be putting pressure on app developers to better support the new OS.
