    My iPad2 is 5 years old and is really slow.

    I was wondering if doing a factory reset and then restoring from backup would help. Or some alternative approach?

    I plan to get a 9.7" iPad Pro in a few months and then use the iPad 2 for limited use.

    I's appreciate any feedback.

    Thanks.

    I'm sorry to say that nothing has worked for me. It's pretty much "re" tired at this point :(

    That might help a tiny bit, but I doubt much. The best thing you could do is restore it as a new device and manually install only what you need.
