Skiping. It won't handoff to the Mac anyways.The iOS 8 reviewer on Anandtech.com said he sold his rMini because iOS 7 was too slow on iPads (but fine on iPhone 5S). I can't imagine that iOS 8 will speed things up on an iPad 2. I'd skip it unless you wanted the sharing features, or the smilie face on the keypad....
Here is the way it works. You buy an iOS device. You never ever update it unless you're having a specific issue that will be fixed by an update.Woundering if I can update without slowing things way down. I know continuity won't work with my Mac. Are there any advantages?
Think that your iOS device will never be better than the way it came out of the box. So keep it like that as long as possible.That's the plan.
My wife uses it the most but I would like to enable handoff to and from my Mac.Think that your iOS device will never be better than the way it came out of the box. So keep it like that as long as possible.
People ask me why not just buy an iPad now.
Because I want iOS 8. I'm not updating an iPad. No way. When iOS 10 comes out I'll get a new iPad, or maybe not. Keep it until it dies with iOS 8.
The iPad air 2 will have the perfect thinness. That's most important in a tablet. IOS 8 will work with the new internals.My wife uses it the most but I would like to enable handoff to and from my Mac.
I'll wait for the holiday sales and then trade mine in.
Ditto.My iPad 2 remains on iOS 6, and it will stay there until it dies. iOS 8 sounds like it isn't close to worth the headaches, especially since handoff, the most important feature, isn't enabled.
