    Gosh I've been hearing and seeing all sorts of things that Apple has been up to..... good and bad. I'm scared to death to do the update. Wondering if my new iPad will become slower and start doing stupid things?

    Thoughts? I only have iOS on my iPad so I don't have anything else to compare it to. I appreciate all opinions! Thank you.

    Hi Kelly,

    i have 11.2.1 on both my iPad Air 2 and iPhone 7 +. I haven’t noticed a slowdown on either.

    Actually I always update as soon as one becomes available, many of them have security updates and patches and I want to make sure I have the latest ones.

    IMHO, on a new iPad, it will not have any impact.

    I updated my 6s as well, hubby uses it and I stalled for a bit but he hasn’t complained of a slowdown. Then again he only has two downloaded apps on it, Google Maps and Accuweather.

    Hope that helps and good luck.

    PS: Just upgrading to 11.2.2, a security patch. 10 secs to download and a zillion years to install.

    Okay I did it. Gonna take a little bit to get adjusted. They sure changed a few things. Mine updated directly to the 11.2.2 so I guess I skipped the awkward long time it took for yours to update. I gotta play around. I miss my numbers on the keyboard etc. gonna do a little research around

    I've updated all my iOS devices to the latest version. I have not noticed any slow-down or issue with the updates. Even the Mac got a supplemental security update today too. For me, it's better to be safe than sorry.
