Jus5 go5 new iPad ver6 nice and good value with easily read screen quality
onl6 issue so far is that there is a very noticeable delay in startin* the Mail app when I click on It it’s empty then after a few secs it loosens with mail. My older iPad Air ( not lates5 one) does not have 5his as its instant opening Also The Times and Sunday Times app will not run properly as it locks up on turning pages page sticks halfway over Not the case on olde model again

Runn8ng latest updated Apple software so not sure what’s up as this one I believe has more RAM than older model - any ideas please as it otherwise is ok ?

Didn't notice this with our iPad 7 (which has the same A10 as you iPad 6, but 1 GB more RAM).

A10 is not super fast, but it's certainly a lot faster than A7 in iPad Air (1 GB RAM) and A8X in iPad Air 2 (2 GB RAM).

Mind you, iPad Air wouldn't be running the same OS.

How long have you used this new device? Is it possible that it’s still restoring data from the cloud from your previous backup?
