    I own an iPad Mini 2 on 7.1.2 JB
    I want to upgrade the iOS. I hear that iPad 2 will become pretty much unusable on iOS 9.3 But what about iPad Mini 2? How much difference is there between the 2?

    There's 2 generations of CPU difference between them.

    Running iOS 9.3 on my iPad Mini 2. I'm quite content.

    The issue does not seem to be the difference between The iPad 2 and the iPad 2 Mini.

    I tried to update my iPad Mini 2 yesterday to 9.3 and I was unsuccessful. I was able to download the update but I was unable to install because of the verification issue. In my case, I had changed my Apple ID password from the time that I originally setup the iPad 2 Mini from several years ago. Apparently, the verification is trying to verify against the original Apple ID password - not my current password.

    AppleCare and others stated to me that the update was pulled and should be back in a few days.

    It runs pretty well overall. I have the broken clickable Safari links bug currently, which is beyond annoying. You'll want to definitely hold off until this is sorted.

    7.1.2 is definitely the fastest. Can you trade a little speed for the newest features? Your call there.

    I agree. iOS7 was super fast on both iPad mini2 (and my iPhone 5s). I do love the latest iOS8 and 9 features (share sheet, widgets in Notification Center, Night Shift) which is why I upgrade my iPad mini2.

    I was able to get 9.3 installed on my mini 2 before the update was pulled. It runs fine. It's not as smooth as it is on, say, my iPad mini 4 or my iPad Air 2, but it otherwise runs fine.
